WEEKLY WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR BELIZE
Valid: Monday-Monday, Nov. 19-26, 2012
A high pressure ridge over the Gulf of Mexico and the NW Caribbean will keep a mild and stable northerly airflow over Belize today through Monday. A surge of cool air from the continental USA will energize the high pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico during the next 48 hours. This will favor the mild conditions to persist during most of this week.
The forecast model is picking up a surface trof in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and the extreme NW Caribbean. This trof will drift SW over Yucatan and Belize by late Tuesday, pulling in some moisture and showers over central and northern Belize by Tuesday evening and early Wednesday. Some of these showers will drift inland on Wednesday.
Otherwise, showers will be confined mostly to the sea and some areas of the central and northern coastal region during the working week.
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 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch Monday through Friday in light to moderate showers and periods of rain. Late Tuesday and Wednesday will be the period for the highest probability of rainfall especially along the central and northern areas of the mainland and coastal regions.
Weekly Outlook for the Cayo District
Expect a mix of sunshine and cloudy spells, with cool, night-time temperatures, ranging from lower 60s in the Mountain Pine Ridge to the mid and upper 60s in the valley areas of the upper Belize River Valley and the Belmopan area. The period with the highest probability of showers is Tuesday evening, Wednesday and early Thursday, occurring especially along the NE foothills of the elevated terrain. Otherwise, the weather will be fair with little rainfall this working week and over the coming weekend in most places.
