Oct. 9, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! Julia is still officially a hurricane about 100 miles east of Managua, Nicaragua. The center and most of the rain looks like it is staying in Nicaragua, so the mainland of Honduras will be spared the worst of it. Most of us have had about half an inch of rain since midnight. The west side got 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain yesterday, the east side about an inch. Coral View recorded a 43 mph wind gust in a squall around 1:30 a.m., but winds have mostly been 10-15 mph. Seas look to be 4 feet on the southside and about 2 feet on the northside.
As you can see in this morning’s satellite image. There is an area of rain to our east which should bring us more rain, sometimes heavy, this morning. East of that you can see bands of clear skies and bands of rain. Depending on what comes our way, it is possible we’ll see sun this afternoon and lower rain chances.
