The Tropical Weather Outlook
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. There are no tropical cyclones in the Atlantic at this time. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th.
2. Gulf of Mexico - Weak high pressure extending the from western Atlantic westward to the eastern Gulf will maintain E to SE return flow over those waters through this morning as a cold front moves off the Texas coast. The front will then move across the northern Gulf through Fri night preceded by scattered showers and thunderstorms. SE fresh to strong return flow will then dominate across the western Gulf through Sun...then diminish Sun night as another cold front moves off the Texas coast. This front will reach from near W central Florida to the NE Yucatan Peninsula by late Mon. Strong southerly winds with a chance for winds reaching to near gale are expected ahead of this next front along...and along with another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms.
3. Caribbean Sea - A weakening cold front extends from 22N55W SW to the Leeward Islands. This front will continue to moving slowly to the SE while gradually dissipating through Fri. Weak high pressure building N of the central Caribbean behind front will support mainly moderate to fresh winds across most of the Caribbean waters...except for strong winds developing at night along the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Honduras. Northerly swell subsiding in the northern tropical N Atlantic will be replaced by a larger batch of long period northerly swell beginning on Sat. This northerly swell will propagate through all of the tropical N Atlantic zones into Mon.
3a. Caribbean Sea... Conditions remain relatively tranquil across the basin this morning as mostly dry west-southwesterly flow aloft prevails. One exception is a dissipating stationary front extending from near Barbuda to 15N68W. Low-level moisture convergence is maximized across the eastern Caribbean in the vicinity of the front generating isolated showers generally S of 16N between 63W-77W. Otherwise...moderate to fresh trades continue and are expected to persist through the upcoming weekend into Monday.

What’s the Weather on Roatan?

When planning a vacation to Roatan you should be aware that, like other countries in the Caribbean, the island is a tropical region with year-round warm temperatures. Monthly averages range from a low of 72°F (22°C) to a high of 89°F (31°C), and even the coldest night will still be comfortably warm.

The weather year round on Roatan is mostly sunny and markedly temperate when compared to northern climes. The seasonal differences are much more subtle than in northern latitudes, but they do exist.

February through May the easterly trade winds are moderate and rainfall is negligible. The ocean water begins to warm and air temperatures range from the high 70s °F to the low 80s °F.

June 1st marks the start of the tropical season in the Western Hemisphere. Roatan is well off the common major hurricane tracks; experiencing about one major hurricane every 20 years. From June through mid-October, skies are mostly sunny with a chance of intermittent rain showers.

By mid-October, ocean water temperatures are in the low to mid- 80s °F and air temperatures are in the mid-80s °F to low 90s °F. Trade winds are the strongest during the month of July.

In the Western Caribbean Sea, ocean water temperatures reach their peak around the middle of October. This coincides with the beginning of winter in the northern hemisphere. The cold fronts that bring snow to Canada and the USA make their way south to us, eventually. When this cool air mass collides with the warm tropical air, the result is rain.

During the fall and winter, when a cold front passes through, night time air temperatures can fall into the high 60s°F. Dive parkas, hoodies and hot chocolate are the order of the day. However, overcast skies and rain will soon give way to sunshine and higher temperatures.
