Dec. 1, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! While the big island stayed dry overnight, Utila picked up 2.3 inches and was still getting rain as shown in the radar from around 7:30 a.m. This is the kind of weather we’re in right now. If you get under the wrong cloud you will get a lot of rain, but if you don’t you will stay completely dry. The forecast through the weekend can be summed up in a few words: Sun and clouds, occasional downpours, choppy seas.
In the satellite image we see some clouds that could hold some showers east of Guanaja. If they hold together they would be over Guanaja around 8 a.m. and Roatan mid- to late-morning. So we will have about a 40 percent chance of seeing a shower today. Otherwise it will be partly cloudy with seas starting out around 4 feet on the south side this morning and calming to 2-3 feet and winds starting out around 15 mph and calming to 7-10 mph by afternoon.
Tonight we will have a 60 percent chance of rain with winds around 15 mph.
Friday should continue partly cloudy with about a 40 percent chance of a scattered shower. Winds start picking up Friday evening and Friday night into Saturday look windy, with east/northeast winds 15-20 mph and seas at around 5 feet (1.6 meters). Friday night into Saturday we still have a good chance of seeing showers but we will also have periods of sun. Sunday looks a bit calmer with winds around 10 mph but seas still 3-4 feet with scattered showers.
Monday and Tuesday the rain chance will be lower. Have a great Thursday!
