Nov. 30, 2022: Good morning Roatan! We’ve had a dry day yesterday and last night and that should continue today, with mostly clear skies. Winds will be from the east 12-17 mph and seas at 2-3 feet (.6 to 1 meter).
Tonight and early tomorrow morning there will be a 50 percent chance of rain. Tomorrow will be partly cloudy with about a 30 percent chance of a shower. Winds will be easterly at 10-15 mph and seas at 2 feet.
Thursday night into Friday there is also a decent chance of rain. The models differ on how much rain we will get through the weekend.
The European model thinks about an inch and a half through Sunday night.
The GFS is more generous, with about 3 inches.
Both models give us good chances of rain at night through this period, but the GFS gives us higher chances of rain during the daytime hours. In either case, expect to catch some rain through the weekend, especially at night and in the mornings. The bigger story is that the seas will be quite choppy, with 4 foot waves coming from the northeast near the island and 5 foot waves and perhaps a bit more further out to sea Saturday and Sunday. If you are going on a ferry, be sure and pack the motion sickness pills. Have a great Wednesday!
