The Caribbean Sea

A dissipating stationary front is across the northwest Caribbean from central Cuba to eastern Honduras. Some showers are noted near the front, but are steadily diminishing in intensity and areal extent. Fresh to strong northerly winds are active west of the front, especially in the Gulf of Honduras where an earlier altimeter satellite pass showed seas reaching 8 ft. Farther south, a recent scatterometer satellite pass indicated strong trade winds off the coast of Colombia.

Farther east, a vigorous upper trough moving across the eastern Caribbean into the tropical Atlantic was supporting areas of heavy showers and a few thunderstorms across the northern Windward Islands late yesterday. An earlier scatterometer satellite pass indicated fresh to strong easterly winds between Saint Vincent and Martinique. Media sources on Martinique reported small hail Monday in scattered thunderstorms from this disturbance. An associated surface trough west of the Lesser Antilles and diffluent flow aloft from the upper trough is continuing to enhance clouds and showers in the Windward Islands. Gusty winds and higher seas are possible near these thunderstorms through early morning as the supporting upper trough shifts slowly east of the area. Meanwhile, NE to E swell to 8 ft is still present in the tropical Atlantic waters east of the Windward Islands.

The front dissipate through late Tue. The trough over the eastern Caribbean will move through Hispaniola and dissipate through mid week. A building ridge north of the region will the area of winds and seas off Colombia to expand across the south central Caribbean into the southwest Caribbean late Wed through late Fri, while maintaining pulses of strong winds off Colombia through late Sat.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the wind is from the North at 10 mph placing our barrier reef in the lee of the island so the sea around it is calm. It's sunny and the expected high is 83 f.

From Belmopan...

The cool air is still moving down from the north over all or most of Belize, but the easterly Caribbean winds and heavy cloud are now starting to push back, presently covering much of southern Belize and moving into central Belize right now, no rain on land, but some out at sea. The surface wind at Belmopan is a "Tiger" wind from the SW. No indication of the high-level winds or cloud.

Looks like today is starting off bright sunshine and cool, but cloud moving in from the east this morning, probably little or no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 20C 69F Yesterday max. 29C 84F

From Belmopan...

The Cloud picture. The cool air is still coming down from the NNE, but the Caribbean winds and clouds are moving in from the ESE. They are crossing over each other. The odd thing is the cool air, clouds appear to be above the warmer Caribbean clouds. Where that is happening, it is making the white clouds thicker and brighter.

( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 23C 74F Yesterday max. 31C 88F
