Oct. 6, 2022: Good morning, Roatan. Let’s start with the forecast for today into the weekend.
As you can see from the 6 a.m. radar and satellite images, there is a lot of rain around. Today will be mostly cloudy with occasional rain, light winds and seas 1-2 feet (.3 to .6 meters). Rain should get lighter and we may see more sun this afternoon. Tomorrow rain is in the forecast, but also periods of sun, especially in the morning. Winds remain calm, but seas continue at 2 feet (.6 meters). Saturday and Sunday also look rainy. To summarize, today through Sunday, mostly cloudy with periods of sun, but also periods of torrential rains, calm winds except in squalls, and 2 foot seas. I’m worried about flooding in some areas, with 4 to 5 inches of rain possible BEFORE any effects of the storm (91L) arrive here. More on the storm in the tropical update.
