June 23, 2022 and tropical update

The National Weather Service’s five day tropical outlook gives a storm in the eastern Atlantic a 40 percent chance of developing in the next five days.

June 23, 2022 and tropical update: Good evening, Roatan! Sorry for missing this morning. Last night most of us got somewhere in the neighborhood of an inch of rain. It was long overdue and much needed.

As you may know by now, long-range forecasts are trying to bring a tropical system our way. We had a false alarm earlier, but this one is different, because more than one model agrees something is brewing in the eastern Atlantic and BOTH the GFS and the European model are bringing it close to us. If it happens, it would get near us around July 2. That is a long way away, but it is something to watch. Tomorrow will be a beautiful day, by the way, with calm winds and seas and a small chance of a shower. Winds pick up this weekend to around 20 mph. Have a great evening!

The European model for wind speed.
The US GFS model for precipitation.
