Monday-Monday, Dec. 31 2012 to Jan. 7, 2013

A high pressure system centered in the SW Atlantic just west of Bermuda is generating a moist north-easterly airflow over the western Caribbean and Belize. This high is forecast to drift southeastward over the next 48 to 72 hours, causing the airflow over the NW Caribbean to veer to the east and then to the ESE by Thursday and Friday of this week.

Another cold front will move off the Texas coast late New Year day, moving rapidly across the NW and central Gulf of Mexico. However, the cold front will stall in the SW Gulf of Mexico on Thursday. A new surge of cold arctic air will reinforce the continental high pressure system behind the cold front, which will then push the system across the eastern Gulf of Mexico and across NW Yucatan by late Saturday. The GFS model extended forecast move this cold front across Yucatan and Belize by late Sunday and early Monday of next week.

The rains will gradually die off later in the morning on New Year day, giving way to brighter weather with only isolated showers on Wednesday through Friday. Showers with possible thunderstorms will likely begin developing in the north and NW on Saturday, spreading over the rest of the country later on Saturday evening and on Sunday, as the next cold front approaches and cross the country of Belize. Cooler and gusty northerly winds will set in on Saturday morning through early Sunday.

Daily rainfall rates over the sea and coastal regions of Belize will be ranging from 0.25-0.50 of-an-inch on Monday through early Tuesday, New Year Day. Rainfall will then decrease later on Tuesday, with daily totals ranging from 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch over some areas of the hills and in the south. Rainfall will be minimal over most areas on Wednesday through Friday. Rainfall rates will increase on Saturday through Monday, with daily totals of 0.25-0.75 of-an-inch in some localities of the north and the central highlands.

On Ambergris Caye this morning it appears the weatherman's prediction of rain is correct.The wind is ESE at 13mph Advisories: *Operators of small crafts should exercise caution for gusty winds and locally rough seas near the heavier showers and thunderstorms.* I'm paying attention to this Advisory this morning and staying tied to the dock.

And for those of us for whom "there" is "here" - Ambergris Caye is quite beautiful this morning and it's still barefoot weather.

This reminds me of a few years ago in January I was giving some tourists a ride on my golf cart and complaining about being cold. They laughed at me and pointed out that I was barefoot with only shorts and a tank top on. It's all relative isn't it?

We rode our bikes this morning in shorts, short sleeves, and sandals and were not chilly at all. Were sure we'd get poured on but only felt a few drops of rain. The wind sure was tough, though!
