Rainfall for August 2022

Rainfall for August 2022: We had quite a range of rainfall totals on the island. The driest was West Bay with only 2.37 inches. The wettest was Politilly’s 7.06 inches. Politilly is almost due north of Jonesville Point and had twice the rain. Go figure. The number that is officially going in the record books is Sandy Bay’s 5.54 inches, which is about an average of what we got islandwide. Most of the rain came in the beginning of the month and was a little more than our average of 4.44 inches. September is very similar to August, usually pretty hot, with relatively low winds and an occasional shower. If anyone ever asks what month to visit Roatan, September is one of my top picks. It is the beginning of the time period we usually look out for hurricanes, a season which, for us, peaks in October. The end of October is the beginning of rainy season.

I'm a native of Columbus, Ga., but lived from 2003-2019 in Lawton, Oklahoma. I've always been a weather geek and now I get to live the dream on an island that doesn't have a good weather forecast system.
