The Caribbean Sea

An upper-level trough extends over the eastern Gulf of mexico and western Caribbean. Upper-level diffluence on the eastern side of this trough is supporting scattered to numerous moderate convection across the Caribbean waters between 76W and 83W. Broad high pressure over the subtropical Atlantic continues to support moderate to fresh tradewinds over most of the basin, except fresh to strong winds over the central Caribbean. Wave heights of 8 to 10 ft persist over the central Caribbean as confirmed by a recent satellite altimeter pass and current buoy data.

Over the next couple of days, the upper-level trough will remain in place enhancing shower and thunderstorm activity over the western Caribbean. A surface trough is expected to develop later today underneath this convection and drift westward. The surface ridging pattern over the Atlantic will persist, keeping a similar wind profile in place across the basin into the middle of this upcoming week.

From Belmopan...

Looking at the satellite picture it looks like a nice, typical sort of summer weather, but, in reality, the easterly Caribbean winds are hitting something around our mountains, resulting in a heavy line of cloud from central Belize right down to the south. This is causing numerous rain showers in many parts of central Belize and coastal parts of south Belize. Northern Belize enjoying sunshine and just a few white clouds.

Looks like today is going to be rather mixed, more geographically than by time. Sunny in the north, sun, clouds and rain in central and southern Belize.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 24°C 76°F Yesterday max. 33°C 91°F

The Cloud and rain picture. A fair amount of rain around, not really moving but developing sort of where it is.
