Good news for us, the latest hurricane threats (Maria & Lee) will be heading north. Unfortunately, Maria will pass over many already devastated areas. There will be minimal impact to Utila for the exception rain. Expect 1.2″ of rain over the next 72 hours. That’s more than we usually get during the same period. There are no significant thunderstorms or lighting storms forecasted.

Monday expect great breezes, with strong gust of over 20 kts in the early evening hours dying off after midnight. Expect rain overnight. Strong breezes will come to a stop Tuesday and won’t return into later in the week. We will see cooler temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday. Expect bugs and more clouds than last week. Scattered showers are likely on Wednesday.

The good news is: we don’t see any major storms or tropical depressions forming this week. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, as hurricane season doesn’t end until November 30th. It’s very likely we’ll see more activity before then.
