Jan. 5, 2023: Good morning, Roatan! For the first time in awhile, we can say there were scattered showers around the island this morning as you can see on this morning’s radar. Only West End recorded any rain, and that was only .01 of an inch. But this goes to show that we are getting out of our completely dry period and entering a period with a few more scattered showers.

We’ll keep a small chance of a shower around this morning, but we should be dry and sunny this afternoon with east winds around 15 mph and seas around 2 feet (.6 meters).

Tonight winds will continue to calm to 10-15 mph and seas to 2 feet.

Tomorrow we will again have some scattered morning showers and we will begin dealing with the tail end of a cold front that moves to our northeast, bringing winds out of the northeast around 10-15 mph and seas to 2-3 feet, but a little more on the north side.

Our best chance of getting a good rain will be overnight Friday into Saturday morning. Saturday we will have a chance of a shower through the day with a mix of clouds and sun, and light winds and seas.

Sunday and Monday we will have scattered showers mostly in the early morning hours and continued light winds and seas. Have a great Thursday!
