Sept. 29, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! The rain definitely arrived yesterday afternoon and through the night. I got nearly 2.5 inches by 6 a.m. today. Sandy Bay picked up 4 inches. West End got 3.5 inches and West Bay almost 2 inches by 6 a.m.
Today we should have rain on and off, sometimes heavy, much as it was last night. Wind and surf has not been as bad as we thought it might on the north side. We still should see 2-3 foot surf during the day on the northside and perhaps up to 4 feet (1.3 meters) tomorrow as the winds get a little higher, up to around 15-20 mph. Today should still be the biggest day for rain, but rain chances will stick around Friday and Saturday. Sunday and Monday look calm. But it definitely is starting to look like a rainy season pattern, with higher chances of rain going into next week.
