Belize Weather Forecast: March 17, 2012

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: A light and relatively dry east-northeasterly airflow dominates our weather.
24-hour forecast: Sunny with a few cloudy spells today and partly cloudy tonight. Showers, if any will be isolated.
Winds: East - northeast 5-15 knots.
Marine Forecast: Winds: E-NE 5-15 kts.; Seas: Light chop - choppy.; Waves: 2-5 ft.; Isolated showers.
Sea Surface Temp (�F): 79
Outlook: For Sun. and Sun. night is for continuing fair weather with only isolated showers developing.

Valid: Friday - Monday, March 16 - 19, 2012

An easterly to east-northeasterly airflow will prevail over the NW Caribbean on Friday and Saturday under the influence of a persistent ridge of high pressure from the western Atlantic. The high pressure ridge will weaken by Sunday. Lows will develop over the Texas Gulf coast and north-eastern Mexico, favouring a drier south-easterly airflow pattern to develop across the NW Caribbean and Belize during Sunday.

We can therefore expect fair and sunny weather to persist this weekend with only brief, isolated showers developing mostly along the coast in the morning, and inland during the afternoon hours.

Daily rainfall totals will be minimal, ranging from 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch on Friday and Saturday, but diminishing on Sunday and Monday, when daily accumulations will be in the range of 0.01-0.10 of-an-inch. The 2012 Dry Season is here but is being tempered or moderated by brief showers developing in the conditionally unstable ENE'ly airstream across the NW Caribbean region, which has been persisting for the last couple of days. The major heat lows are yet to begin develop over Mexico and across Central America. Let's wait and see how this unfolds!

It was a spectacular sunrise today indeed - so glad Elbert and his trusty camera were up and ready to capture it for us!
