Dec. 2, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! Yesterday Utila picked up 1.5 inches of rain after getting 1.6 the day before. They have picked up .08 of an inch between midnight and 6 a.m. already. West Bay and West End picked up small amounts yesterday evening, with Sandy Bay picking up a quarter of an inch and Coral View and French Harbor around half an inch. Here on Jonesville Point we got a third of an inch.

Today should be a lot like yesterday, with mixed clouds and sun and occasional showers, perhaps a little more numerous this afternoon than yesterday.

As you see in this morning’s satellite image, there are storms to our northeast, and with a strong southwesterly flow in the atmosphere it is pushing those storms toward us, and will increase our rain chances early this afternoon. It is also pushing up our surf to 4-5 feet (1.3 to 1.6 meters) especially on the southern and eastern sides of the island. This high surf will last through the weekend, so be careful on the seas.

This mix of sun, clouds, scattered showers and high surf will last through the weekend. Monday and Tuesday the rain chances look lower. Have a great Friday!
