Sept. 30, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! Yesteday West Bay picked up 4.42 inches of rain. That is the most picked up in one day in a long time around here. West End got 1.9 inches. Utila picked up 2 inches of rain yesterday. Sandy Bay got 1.5, Mud Hole 2 inches, Coral View 1 inch (they also half an inch from midnight to 6 a.m.). Almost all the rain we got in Politilly and Jonesville Point was before 6 a.m. yesterday. Yesterday looks like it was the coolest morning, with one location getting down to 71 degrees. BRRRR.
West winds are bringing up seas this morning, perhaps 2 feet on the north side, and that may get up to around 3-4 feet today with winds getting stronger, to around 20 mph. After we get rid of some of these morning showers, the afternoon should get clearer and we should have a lower chance of rain this afternoon through tonight. Saturday we still have west winds, though a bit calmer around 12-15 mph and seas at 3 feet (1 meter). Sunday will be quite calm and those calm conditions will last into next week. Rain chances will be around 50/50 over the weekend and next week looks like we will have good chances of rain each day, but we will also have peaks of sun. I’m afraid to say that next weekend is looking like another possibility of heavy rain. Have a great Friday!
