I think we can pretty confidently say this morning there will be no hurricane for Roatan! Notice how the storm is clearly to our north this morning and the island itself is in a dry area on the much weaker side of the storm. Seas will definitely be rough, especially on the north side. We have gotten winds gusting to 29 mph on Jonesville Point and 30 mph near West End and as the storm moves away and strengthens, 35-40 mph winds are not out of the question.
You will notice on Belize radar this morning you can see a small eye to this storm, marked with a black “x”. Almost all the rain with this storm is on the north side, away from us. There is some rain to our west which could come our way around daybreak. After that, though, there is some dry air behind the storm, which could mean our Wednesday will actually be kind of dry.
