Tomorrow E-SE 10-20 kts Choppy-Moderate 3-5 ft A FEW SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS.

The Caribbean Sea

An upper trough extends over the Yucatan Peninsula and northern portions of central America. Upper level diffluence on the eastern side of this trough is supporting scattered moderate convection and embedded thunderstorms from 11N to 22N W of 80W, except the Yucatan Channel, where drier air is inhibiting thunderstorm activity. Broad high pressure over the subtropical Atlantic supports moderate to fresh tradewinds over the majority of the Caribbean basin this morning, except for light winds over the SW Caribbean, and strong winds over the S Central Caribbean. Wave heights near 10 ft are occurring under the stronger winds as confirmed by a recent satellite altimeter pass.

Over the next couple of days the upper trough will remain in place which will keep an enhancement of shower and thunderstorm activity over the western Caribbean. The ridging pattern over the Atlantic will persist, keeping a similar wind profile in place across the Caribbean into the upcoming weekend.

From Belmopan...

Well that heat yesterday certainly brought the storms in over our area, but the storms and rain over Belize were very patchy. Belmopan only had a small amount of rain, 2.5mm ( 1/10" ), last night, actually just after midnight. There are chunky lines of Caribbean cloud going into north Belize from the SE, already clashing with high level from the NW but only a few light rain patches. There is a blanket of slow moving heavy cloud over much of central Belize and high level cloud over parts of southern Belize. All very mixed weather.

Hard to say what today will be like, probably very variable, depending on where you are, some areas heavy dark clouds, other have bright sunshine, presently no rain, but that could change for this afternoon.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25C 78F Yesterday max. 36C 97F
