Belize Weather Forecast: February 24, 2012

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Strong and gusty southeasterly airflow prevails.
24-hour forecast: Sunny, warm and dry today. Mainly fair tonight with little or no rainfall.
Winds: Southeast 10-20 knots with higher gusts.
Marine Forecast: Moderate - rough. **SMALL CRAFT CAUTION**. Waves: 4-7 ft. Mainly dry.
Sea Surface Temp (ºF): 79
Outlook: (Sat & Sat night) Cloudy spells with a few afternoon and evening showers, along with isolated thunderstorms, mainly inland and in the north.

Valid Time: Monday, Feb. 20, 2012 until Monday, Feb. 27, 2012

It will be a seasonally dry and breezy week. Evidence of the 2012 Dry Season is noticeable across Belize. The Dry Season could become more intense later in March, April and early May.

The feature of interest this working week will be a seasonally drier and stable East to South-easterly airflow over the NW Caribbean and Belize, generated by a weakening Atlantic High Pressure system and a broad, frontal low pressure system moving over and to the north of Texas during the next 24 to 48 hours.

A cold front will make its way slowly south-eastward across the Gulf of Mexico by early Friday, reaching a position from the Florida Keys to southern Yucatan by Saturday evening. The approach of this front could trigger off some localized thunderstorms over inland Belize on Saturday afternoon and evening. This frontal zone is likely to become diffused over Belize on Sunday, and will then dissipate.

The weather will be seasonally sunny and dry during most of this working week, with a fresh East to South-easterly breeze prevailing. The proximity of the cold front on Saturday evening and Sunday could provoke some afternoon and evening thunderstorms especially in the interior and north. Some showers and rain could affect most districts and coastal waters on Sunday. The rains will die away later on Monday and Tuesday.

Daily rainfall accumulations will be minimal from Monday through Saturday morning, ranging from a mere 0.01 to 0.10 of-an-inch. Daily rainfall totals will increase later on Saturday through Monday, with totals ranging from 0.25-0.50 of-an-inch over most districts and coastal waters.

I'm going to believe the weather man and clean out my cistern in anticipation of this ending in a good rain.

I'm shouting because the wind is sooo strong I can't hear myself type.
Amanda's weather station says 32 MPH but down south they are out of the brunt of it - this is wild!

When do we get the rain?

I've been busy securing the boats. I hope my old rickety dock makes it through the night.
I don't know the wind speed but Jim would say its enough to blow the drink from your [email protected]#*ing glass!

Valid: Friday-Monday, Feb. 24 - 27, 2012 Issued: 3:00 pm, Friday, February 24, 2012

A cold front will drift slowly east south-eastwards across the Gulf of Mexico during the next 24 to 48 hours, stalling over the central Gulf and the Bay of Campeche on Sunday, then dissipating later on Monday. The approaching cold front will however, induce some showers and/or afternoon thunderstorms inland over Belize and Yucatan on Sunday afternoon and evening. The unstable airflow will favour a few showers on Monday, especially over central and northern districts of Belize.

Otherwise, the weather across the nation will continue seasonally dry and warm today through most of the weekend and Monday.

Daily rainfall totals will range from 0.01-0.10 of-an-inch on Friday and Saturday, increasing later on Saturday and Sunday, with daily accumulations ranging from 0.25-0.50 of-an-inch, especially over central and northern districts. Daily rainfall totals will decrease over all places during Monday through Tuesday of next week.
