Jan. 24, 2023: Good morning, Roatan! We got our early morning shower, which got up to half an inch of rain in Sandy Bay and mostly between a tenth and a quarter of an inch for the rest of us.

As you can see on the radar and satellite at 6:50 a.m. the rain is mostly west of Roatan, though Utila may pick up a shower from this wave between 7 and 8 a.m.

Today we will have a very small chance of a shower in the morning, followed by clear skies and increasing winds from the east. By sundown our winds will be gusting to 30 mph so be careful on the seas.

Winds will be gusty tonight, but should calm a bit by the first ferry tomorrow morning, with 7 a.m. winds 15-20 mph and seas 3-4 feet here and 1-2 feet at Ceiba. Tomorrow will be sunny and dry. Tomorrow night winds get back up to 20-25 mph.

Thursday winds will calm to around 10 mph and start turning to the northeast. Seas will be 2-3 feet. We will have increasing clouds during the day and a good chance of rain, especially in the evening and overnight into Friday morning.

Friday afternoon winds continue fairly calm around 10 mph and seas around 2 feet. Friday afternoon should be partly cloudy with only a small chance of rain.

Rain chances go up again Friday night into Saturday morning.

Saturday afternoon into the first part of next week we should stay mostly dry with easterly winds about 10 mph during the day and 20 mph at night. Have a great Tuesday!
