July 1, 2022: Good morning Roatan! Our tropical cyclone, which still has not reach tropical storm status yet, is bringing rain to the coast of Nicaragua and northern Costa Rica as of 8 a.m. this morning. As the day moves along it will quickly move across Central America and emerge into the Pacific, where it is expected to strengthen, perhaps into a hurricane. But this system has a history of underperforming the models. Nevertheless, this could be a big rainmaker for southern Nicaragua. It will sweep some moisture our way and bring a good chance of rain tonight and through much of tomorrow. It should also bring 20 mph winds from the east and 3-4 foot (1-1.3 meter) seas.
Sunday we’ll keep some clouds around and east winds 20-25 mph, but there will be a lower chance of rain, around 30 percent.
Next week will be a week of moderate winds and seas (10-20 mph and 2-3 foot seas) and 30 to 40 percent chances of rain each day. Have a great Friday!
