The Caribbean Sea

An upper trough extends over the Yucatan Peninsula and the NW Caribbean. Upper level diffluence on the eastern side of this trough is supporting scattered moderate convection N of 18N W of 75W and S of 16N W of 80W. Broad high pressure over the subtropical Atlantic supports moderate to fresh tradewinds over the NW and E Caribbean, and fresh to strong winds over the central Caribbean. Light winds are occurring over the SW Caribbean near the eastern Pacific monsoon trough. Wave heights of 8 to 10 ft are occurring over the S central Caribbean as confirmed by an recent satellite altimeter pass and current buoy data.

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

GORGEOUS rainbow, beautiful morning!!!

From Belmopan...

There has been a lot of high level from the NW clashing with lower cloud all over our area, causing a lot of rain over Mexico and Guatamala, but only smaller patches in Belize over night. Right now there is a small swellup causing rain over Corozal. The Caribbean wind with lines of cloud is from the ESE over north Belize, but not south Belize. The high level causing classing is from the NW over north Belize, but from the west over south Belize. Yet the surface wind is from the SW over Belmopan, with significant patches of cloud and sunshine.

Looks like today is going to be a bit mixed, the patches of rain clearing this morning, but could be more rain this afternoon in odd patches, a fair amount of clouds will develop this morning.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25°C 77°F Yesterday max. 34°C 94°F
