Sept. 27, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! Hurricane Ian is exiting the Caribbean this morning. A couple of outer bands brought us some squalls yesterday morning, but not everybody saw rain. West Bay, for instance, recorded none.
Today we have mostly sunny skies and a mild westerly breeze. As the day goes on, that breeze may kick up in the 10-15 mph range bringing 2-3 foot seas (.6-1 meter) to the north side. This week, with unusual westerly and then northerly breezes, the higher wave action will be on the north side all week. Rain chance today is about 30 percent, but that goes up to about 50 percent tomorrow and close to 100 percent Thursday and Friday as the cool front powered by the hurricane arrives, bringing us a stiff northerly breeze and cooler temperatures. We should clear out and have gorgeous weather this weekend into the first of next week with mild winds and seas. Have a great Tuesday!
