Rainfall as of 6:45 a.m.

Good morning Bay Islands. About 1 a.m. the west side got a heavy downpour of an inch and a half. Most of the rest of the island and Utila have stayed dry as of 6:45 a.m.

Radar at 6:45 a.m.

There’s lots of rain around, mostly to our west. These showers are moving to the south. There’s a good chance we get some rain in the next couple of hours, especially Utila and the west side.

Wave forecast for 7 a.m. Tuesday

Throughout the day, seas will get higher on the north side. Our north winds are not very strong, but they are stronger out to sea and will kick up the surf. Seas are expected to get up to 5 feet on the north side. As you can see on this map for the seas at 7 a.m. tomorrow, seas will be calmer on the south side and heading toward Ceiba, perhaps 2-3 feet.

Our best chance of rain will be this morning. This afternoon we’ll have a mix of sun and clouds and scattered showers. Another good chance of rain tonight and early tomorrow morning. After that our chance of rain is lower for tomorrow, tomorrow night and Wednesday, maybe a 30 percent chance. After that the chances of rain pretty much go away. Starting Wednesday we have dry conditions and strong east winds kicking up our seas. Have a great Monday!
