Belize Weather Forecast: May 31, 2012

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Unstable conditions will continue to support some outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms.
24-hour forecast: Sunny with some cloudy spells today becoming mostly cloudy tonight. A few showers and thunderstorms will occur mainly over northern and inland areas today and over most areas tonight.
Winds: East - southeast 10 - 20 knots.
Marine Forecast: Choppy - moderate. Today: Winds: E-SE 10 -20 kts.; seas: Choppy - moderate.; waves: 3-6 ft.; a few showers and isolated thunderstorms mostly in the north. Outlook: Friday night:- winds: E-SE 5 -15 kts.; seas: Light chop - choppy; waves: 2-4 ft.; a few showers and isolated thunderstorms.
Sea Surface Temp (ºF): 83
Outlook: For Fri. and Fri. night is for some cloudy spells with a few showers developing along with isolated afternoon thunderstorms inland.

Valid: May 28 – June 4, 2012

Two systems were responsible for the outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms last week and over the weekend. The first was a persistent low pressure area over and just offshore Belize that eventually drifted NE towards Cuba by late Wednesday. While, in the upper atmosphere, a westward drifting short-wave trough moved over Belize on Sunday and its axis now extends from NW Bahamas south-westward across the eastern Gulf of Mexico and central Yucatan Peninsula and Guatemala. This feature is forecast to continue its westwards displacement as an upper anticyclone migrates westward over northern Central America by Thursday of this week.

A weak tropical wave will make its way westward over the central and western Caribbean this week, reaching the Yucatan and Belize coasts by late Wednesday. Otherwise, the airflow in the NW Caribbean will become drier in a weak SE’ly current as we approach the weekend. Showers may likely be on the increase once again on Sunday afternoon and Monday.

Daily rainfall accumulations will be in the range of 0.25-0.50 of-an-inch over north-western and northern Belize on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, with amounts of 0.50-0.75 of-an-inch in the higher terrain and some parts of the coast. Daily accumulations will decrease on Thursday through most of the weekend over the country as the airflow becomes drier and more stable. We can expect daily totals of 0.10-0.25 of an inch especially in the N and NW regions.

Tropical Cyclone Outlook: The models are not forecasting any tropical cyclone formation over the Caribbean during the next five days.

Tropical Weather Outlook: Beryl is an extratropical storm rapidly moving away from the mid-Atlantic coastline. The wind and rain from Beryl will remain offshore as the system continues off to the northeast today. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the west-central Caribbean may get drawn north and northeast across Cuba and perhaps affect the Bahamas and South Florida on Thursday night and Friday. Shear should keep this area of active weather from becoming better organized. Elsewhere, no organized tropical weather is expected over the next couple of days. There are currently no tropical advisories.

Does our wet weather typically come from the Pacific side of CA at this time of year? when I look at the animations

It seems as if they ride over and then up to us...

Yep, it's called a "monsoonal flow". The eastern Pacific is usually more active earlier in the season.

Yesterday I had too much water and last night I got more.
I could start an aquaculture business in my back yard.
Scary part is this makes my house the high ground that everything that crawls goes to.

Early Rainy Season Drenches San Pedro - Ambergris Today
For about two weeks now we have been getting a lot of rain and the onset of an early rainy season has put a toll in some of the streets on the island. We have even experienced some storms with winds up to tropical storm conditions; it has been a rough couple of weeks. Ambergris Today took a ride around the island to see how bad the street conditions were and was quite surprised to see that they aren’t as bad as other times. Now we are not saying that the roads are beautiful and don’t have pot holes or mud but let’s be realistic we live on an island and when it rains the sand will turn into mud!
