...The Caribbean Sea...

The undersea volcano Kick 'em Jenny, located north of Grenada near 12.18N 61.38W, is in a state of unrest. The government of Grenada advises mariners to observe a 5 km / 3.1 nm exclusion zone around Kick 'em Jenny. Please see http://nadma.gd for further information.

High pressure east of the Bahamas is maintain moderate to fresh trade winds over the south central Caribbean, and gentle to moderate E to SE winds over the northern Caribbean. An altimeter satellite pass from 23 UTC indicated seas in excess of 8 ft off Colombia, an indication trade winds are stronger off northeast Colombia, and will possibly reach near gale force through early morning due to the added effect of drainage flow. Seas are 2 to 4 ft in the northwest Caribbean, and 4 to 6 ft elsewhere.

Regional radar in the eastern Caribbean shows a few small showers in the trade wind flow over the Windward Islands, but otherwise no significant rainfall is noted.

High pressure north of the region will continue to support fresh to locally strong trades across the south central Caribbean the next several days, except increasing to near gale force along the northwest coast of Colombia during the overnight hours. A weakening cold front will pass through the Yucatan Basin late Tue night. The pressure gradient will tighten ahead of the front, allowing fresh to strong E to SE winds off the central coast of Honduras by Mon night.

From Belmopan...

There is more high-level cloud around today, still fairly thin, but will have some effect on our weather today. There is not much Caribbean cloud, but some white clouds already developing on land, but moving slowly at present.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, but with white clouds developing, no rain expected.

The Cloud picture. Regular ESE Caribbean wind over central and north Belize, but being bent round the mountains in southern Belize. Thin high-level clouds, not having much effect on our weather today.
