Aug. 26, 2022: Good morning Roatan! The rain to our east fizzled out before it got here, so no rain on the island in the last 24 hours. Today there is a wave to our northeast so we will keep a small chance of a shower through the day today. Otherwise winds should be 5-10 mph and seas 1-2 feet.

Tomorrow through Monday look to be nice days with winds around 10 mph during the day and 15-20 mph at night and small chances of showers mostly at night.

The tropical wave is now just west of the Windward Islands and has a 30 percent chance of tropical development in the next five days. There is a lot of uncertainty about its exact movement. If it jogs a little to the north we could be mostly dry next week, but if it stays on course we will likely have times of heavy showers in the middle of next week, though it is unlikely to become a tropical storm by the time it gets here. We’ll keep an eye on it.
