SAN PEDRO WEATHER DISCUSSION by Winston Panton (with
excerpts from the Regional Hurricane Center)

...TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT / SPECIAL FEATURE...

TROPICAL DEPRESSION GAMMA WAS CENTERED NEAR 17.2N
85.5W...OR 85 NM N OF LIMON HONDURAS...AT 21/0300 UTC
(9 P.M. LOCAL TIME) AND MOVING N 2 KT. ESTIMATED
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE WAS 1008 MB. MAXIMUM
SUSTAINED WIND SPEED IS 25 KT WITH GUSTS TO 35 KT.

GAMMA IS NEARLY STATIONARY OVER THE GULF OF HONDURAS
AND HAS LOST ALL DEEP CONVECTION NEAR ITS CENTER.
ISOLATED SHOWERS/TSTMS ARE STILL OCCASIONALLY FORMING
TO THE N FROM 18N-21N BETWEEN 83W-86W BUT THE VERTICAL
SHEAR IS BECOMING TOO STRONG TO SUPPORT FUTURE
ORGANIZATION. THE LAST ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED ON
THIS SYSTEM...AND IT WILL MOVE SLOWLY E OVER THE NEXT
DAY OR TWO BEFORE BECOMING ABSORBED BY A COLD FRONT ON
TUE.

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO THE NW CARIBBEAN MON NIGHT
AND WILL SHIFT THE DEEPEST MOISTURE OVER THE SW
CARIBBEAN FOR MUCH OF THE UPCOMING WEEK.


TODAY’S FORECAST

A TROPICAL STORM GAMMA ALMOST STATIONARY AND
DISSIPATING EAST OF BELIZE
TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED FOR
BELIZE. STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS AND COLD TEMPERATURES
WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT BELIZE AS ANOTHER COLD FRONT
INVADES.

Ambergris Caye, San Pedro and Caye Caulker will
experience for the next 24 hrs:

Cloudy to overcast skies during today and tonight.
Winds will be northerly to northwesterly at 15 to 20
kts with gusts above 25 Kts. Few periods of light to
moderate rain will develop during the evening hours.
The sea state will rough.

** MARINE OPERATORS and OTHER INTERESTS SHOULD
EXERCISE CAUTION DUE TO STRONG NORTHERLY TO
NORTHWESTERLY WINDS AND ROUGH SEAS**

The outlook is for continuing cloudy and cool weather
on Tuesday.


Northwest & Southwest Caribbean:

T.D. GAMMA HAS BECOME A SKELETON LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
WITH ONLY A FEW TSTMS FORMING OVER THE NW CARIBBEAN
DUE W OF GRAND CAYMAN. SWLY FLOW ALOFT COVERS THE NW
CARIBBEAN AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH
BUT THERE IS RELATIVELY LITTLE TROPICAL MOISTURE TO
DRAW FROM AND DRIER AIR IS MOVING IN FROM THE E.
STRONG NLY WINDS ARE INCREASING BEHIND THE FRONT WHICH
WILL BECOME STATIONARY FROM HISPANIOLA TO PANAMA WED
THEN DIFFUSE THU.

Central Caribbean:

A STRONG UPPER HIGH IS CENTERED S OF HISPANIOLA NEAR
17N72W WITH STRONG SUBSIDENCE COVERING THE AREA E OF
80W AND CREATING MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES.

STRONG EASTERLIES OVER THE S CENTRAL CARIBBEAN TODAY
WILL DECREASE TONIGHT AS THE FRONT APPROACHES.

Eastern Caribbean:

A FEW LOW-TOPPED SHOWERS ARE HOVERING OVER THE FAR SE
CARIBBEAN AND OVER THE WINDWARD ISLANDS...AS WELL AS
UP TO 250 NM N OF THE COLOMBIAN COAST.
