Satellite image from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. today

Aug. 31, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! Our tropical wave came close enough yesterday to give some of us a good downpour around midday. Coral View was the big winner with 1.15 inches. Politilly got a third of an inch as did one location in Sandy Bay. Punta Blanca got a tenth of an inch and here on Jonesville Point we only got .02 of an inch. West Bay and West End got no measureable rain.

As you can see in the satellite from 7 p.m. yesterday to 7 a.m. today, the tropical wave has shifted north toward Jamaica. That shift is away from us so I’m less optimistic about rain. I am optimistic about calm winds. The sea on the southside looks like a pond, a great day to go out on the water. We will keep a 40 percent chance of rain today and tomorrow morning. If we don’t get rain these two days, we may stay dry for awhile, because the forecast the next week or so after that has very low rain chances. Winds will come back up into the normal range of 12-17 mph during the day and 15-20 mph at night starting Friday. Have a great Wednesday!
