The Caribbean Sea

Thunderstorms are generating along a trough reaching from central Cuba to 11N78W, just north of eastern Panama. Showers and thunderstorms are also starting to flare off the coast of Colombia near Barranquilla. A recent scatterometer satellite pass from 02 UTC indicated trade winds were already reaching 20 to 25 kt off the coast of Colombia, off the Guajira peninsula. Moderate to fresh trades are noted elsewhere east of the trough, supported by high pressure north of the area. Farther east, regional radar indicates a few fast moving trade wind showers through the Leeward and Windward Islands. The same scatterometer pass showed fresh to strong easterly winds just off the northern Leeward Islands. Seas east of the Leeward and Windward Islands are reaching 8 ft due to the persistent trade winds and a component of E to NE swell.

Little change is expected in the forecast. The trough will drift slowly west through Thu then will dissipate. Moderate to fresh trades will persist east of the trough, with pulses of fresh to strong trade winds off northeast Colombia mainly at night.

Ambergris Caye this morning is still in the lee of North-NE wind and we have a flat calm sea around our barrier reef. The sky is clear and we have a sunny day with the expected high of 87 f.

From Belmopan...

There are straggly lines of cloud coming down from the NNE and at the same time other patches of cloud going up from the SSW. These are clashing along the southern coast area, presently out at sea, and up north around San Pedro area. Small areas of rain, but out at sea.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, some cloud around, little or no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25°C 76°F Yesterday max. 33°C 92°F
