Belize Weather Forecast: May 6, 2018


General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Conditions are expected to become slightly more moist during the next 24 to 48 hours.

General Outlook: For Monday and Monday night is for some cloudy spells with a few showers and isolated thunderstorms mostly over inland and southern areas of the country.

These winds gradually will become fresh, and back to the E from Sunday through Tuesday, as the trough heads WNW and weakens and strong Atlantic Ocean high pressure weakens slowly. The large upper-level cyclonic circulation center that is on top of Cuba will trigger showers and thunderstorms in the central and easter Caribbean Sea through Tuesday. Click for more...

The Caribbean Sea

An upper level cyclonic circulation center is along the Atlantic Ocean side of Cuba along 78W. Upper level cyclonic wind flow that is moving around the circulation center covers the area from SW corner of the Caribbean Sea to 28N in the Atlantic Ocean between 65W in the Atlantic Ocean and 90W in the Gulf of Mexico. A surface trough is along 74W/76W, across SE Cuba and the Bahamas, from 18N in the Windward Passage to 28N in the Atlantic Ocean. Precipitation: widely scattered moderate to isolated strong rainshoewrs cover the areas from 15N in the Caribbean Sea to 27N in the Atlantic Ocean between 70W and 78W. Rainshowers are possible elsewhere from 14N in the Caribbean Sea to 32N in the Atlantic Ocean between 60W in the Atlantic Ocean and 86W in the NW corner of the Caribbean Sea, including in parts of Florida. This feature was forecast by the computer models at the beginning of the week. The GFS model forecast, for 250 mb and 500 mb, shows that a cyclonic circulation center will stay on top of Cuba, weaken into a trough, and then move eastward. An upper level trough will move across the Gulf of Mexico toward Florida. The GFS model, from the surface to 700 mb, shows that a trough will move westward from its present position on top of Cuba and the Bahamas, to Florida, for the next few days.

Fresh easterly winds will prevail in the eastern Caribbean Sea and in the Tropical North Atlantic Ocean through Sunday night. The upper level cyclonic circulation center is on top of Cuba. Expect widespread rainshowers with thunder N of 15N between 70W and 80W through Sunday night. The winds and seas will subside gradually on Monday and Tuesday.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the sea is flat calm and breeze from the E-NE at 6 mph. We've had a nice early morning downpour that settled the dust. Today's expected high is 88f.

From Belmopan...

A bubble of cool air pushed down from the north yesterday, causing rain in Mexico and Guatamala last night, but not Belize. There is thick cloud covering most of Belize at present. moving from the north and some high level cloud from the NNW. There are a few rain showers still around, but reducing.

Looks as if today will start cloudy, but become sunny later, with little or no rain later.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 24°C 75°F Yesterday max. 33°C 91°F
