WEEKLY WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR BELIZE
Valid: Monday-Monday, Nov. 12- 19, 2012
Here is the Weekly Weather Outlook. To date this winter season 2012-2013, we have had two cold front passages over Belize. On the average we get about 12 cold fronts crossing Belize.
A moist east-northeasterly airstream is producing rain and light to moderate showers mostly over the seas and coastal areas of the Belize, Stann Creek and Toledo districts this morning. The rain clouds have spread inland over the Cayo, southern Orange Walk and Toledo districts by noon, as indicated by the latest IR satellite images.
An active frontal boundary in the Gulf region of the southern USA will drift southwards over the next 24 to 48 hours, but the southern portion of this cold front will weaken and dissipate as the upper level support ceases, and the surface continental high stops advecting cold air southward, as it shifts to the NE.
A backing in the low level flow over Belize and the NW Caribbean is expected by the next 48 to 72 hours, as the cold front and the building high pressure ridge edge southwards in the central Gulf by Wednesday; however by Friday the flow will be returning to a drier easterly airstream. Thus, we can expect the moist, unstable airflow to remain over the region through Wednesday and early Thursday, drying out as we move into Friday and the holiday weekend.
No tropical cyclone is expected to form over or move into the Caribbean region during the next five to seven days.
Rainfall rates over the sea and coastal regions of Belize will be ranging from 0.25-0.50 of-an-inch Monday through Wednesday in moderate showers and periods of rain. Daily rainfall accumulations will be less over the rest of the country, with daily totals of only 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch, generally. The rains will diminish over all districts and coastal water later on Thursday through the holiday on Monday, except for localized heavier showers over southern coastal areas late Sunday through Monday.
