Sept. 19, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! We finally got one of those nighttime showers to give us a little rain, with the emphasis on “a little.” It seems that everyone got wet, but no one got much more than a tenth of an inch of rain, enough to keep the dust down for one morning, perhaps, but not enough to fill our cisterns.
Today we will have east winds 7-12 mph and 2 foot (.6 meter) seas under mostly sunny skies. Tonight we will have another chance of a passing shower. After tonight, things get flat calm and pretty dry for the rest of the week. You can never rule out a popup shower, but it looks unlikely.
I do want to make mention of a system we are seeing on the satellite. You will notice that Hurricane Fiona is ravaging Puerto Rico and the DR this morning, but behind it, northeast of the South American coast is a cluster of showers and storm. Many of the computer models are making this into something that might move our way in about 10 days or so. Of course, computer models this far out are highly unreliable, but we will keep an eye on it. Have a great week!
