June 25, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! We got a quick bit of rain early this morning and so did Politilly, but only a few hundredths of an inch. Today we will have a fifty fifty chance of rain, especially toward evening. Winds will be from the east/southeast 15-20 mph. Seas will be 2 feet (.6 meters), perhaps around 3 feet (1 meter) by evening. Rain chances will be lower tomorrow through Tuesday before going up again Wednesday and Thursday.
We are still looking at the possibility of a storm brewing in the Atlantic and coming this way. The clouds right now are off the coast of the Guyanas. We are a long way away from the storm getting to our neighborhood, which models predict would be around July 2. It is way too early to get worried, but it is unusual for so many models to have this much agreement this early in the game. The forecast map here is the European model. It is similar to the US model, but perhaps a little stronger. It shows the storm hitting midcoast of Nicaragua. We’ll keep an eye on it.
