Sept. 28, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! Hurricane Ian is doing its worst in Southwest Florida today and its strong influence will push a cool front our way, especially starting tonight. Tomorrow looks like the best day for rain and Friday looks like the best day for northerly winds.

Today we will have partly to mostly cloudy skies with an increasing chance of rain as the day goes on. Winds will be from the west at 12-17 mph and seas at 2 feet (.6 meters). Keep in mind that in this forecast, sea heights are giving for the north side, since that is the side that is catching the winds. We’ll have a good chance of rain tonight and especially tomorrow morning. Some of the rain could be heavy. Wind will be from the north/northwest at 12-17 mph and seas at 3 feet (1 meter). The rain looks lighter Friday, but still a good chance of getting wet. Winds will be west/northwest at 20-25 mph and seas at 4 feet (1.3 meters). Rain chances continue Saturday with west winds at 15 mph and seas at 3 feet (1 meter).

Sunday and Monday we should have ther return of calm conditions. There is disagreement in the models about rain those days. The Euro gives us a good chance, while the GFS gives us mostly sunny skies. In any case, starting tomorrow, we should feel a couple of degrees cooler than normal, with lows in the mid 70s and highs in the low 80s. Have a great Wednesday!
