Dec. 31, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! And, though I know it is mainly of importance to folks from the U.S., Happy College Football Semifinal Saturday!
We had a pretty windy overnight which stirred up the seas, which are around 4 feet this morning (1.3 meters). For those riding the ferry to Ceiba, when we have strong east winds like we currently have, the ride usually gets smoother the closer to the mainland you get, because the mainland offers some protection against easterly winds, so the seas down there this morning are 1-2 feet.
We also have some low clouds this morning and can’t rule out a passing shower somewhere, but it is unlikely. Winds should calm a bit during the day to around 15 mph and seas to 3 feet (1 foot toward Ceiba). This evening and tonight winds pick up again to 20-25 mph and seas to 4 feet.
Sunday and especially Sunday night is even a bit windier with daytime winds around 20 mph and Sunday night winds gusting to 30 mph. Daytime seas will be 4 feet and nighttime up to 5 feet.
The early part of next week is also windy and dry.
Starting Friday and into next weekend, it looks like another cold front may pass through bringing us showers, though it doesn’t look as strong as last week’s norther. Have a great last day of 2022 and with apologies to any Buckeyes out there, Go Dawgs!
