May 10, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! We had a pretty windy night last night and will have one more day in the wind before calm conditions take over, and with it the heat.
Today will be sunny and hot with east winds 15-20 mph and seas at 3 feet (1 meter).
Tomorrow winds calm to 5-10 mph and seas 1-2 feet (.3 to .6 meters). The chance of rain will be mostly in the evening.
Our best chance of rain comes tomorrow night into Thursday, though even then it is probably only 50-50.
Thursday there will be a 40 percent chance of rain, mostly in the morning, with winds 2-7 mph and seas at 1 feet (.3 meters).
Friday through the weekend, conditions will be quite calm, but with no rain in the forecast. This is great for boating but not good if you want to cool off. As I have often said, heat on the island is not so much about actual temperature as it is about cloud cover and wind. Tomorrow through the weekend we won’t have much wind and even Wednesday and Thursday will be partly cloudy and Friday through Sunday will be quite sunny. In other words, the end of this week is going to be a hot one. Stay cool and have a great Tuesday!
