Jan. 6, 2023: Good morning Roatan! This morning with a northeast wind in place we are seeing some rain coming off the mainland giving Utila a morning shower with .16 and still raining at 7 a.m.
Overnight Coral View got .06 and French Harbor .04, Politilly .04, Coral View .03 and Jonesville Point .09.
As you can see in this morning’s satellite, we have a cold front to our north (orange line), while our northeasterly winds is building up some rain coming off the mainland of Honduras (yellow arrow). We will keep a chance of showers through the morning, but we’ll be mostly sunny through the afternoon with a northeast wind at 15 mph and seas on the northeast side of the island around 3 feet, while further west and south seas will be 2 feet.
Tonight and tomorrow morning we will have our best chance of getting a good rain. Winds starting through the weekend into next week will be quite light, though seas tomorrow will be 2-3 feet due to the winds from the cold front passing to our northeast.
Saturday night into Sunday morning we will see another decent chance of rain, but the rest of Sunday will be a mix of sun and clouds and only a small chance of shower.
That pattern will continue next week, with decent chances of an overnight or early morning shower, but calm winds and mostly sunny skies most of the daytime hours. We’re watching the possibility of a cold front for next weekend. Have a great Friday!
