From Elbert....

We have a heavy overcast and wind seems to be from the back pushing sargasa out to sea. The sea around the barrier reef is flat calm because it's in the Lee. We have a surge now and then that tells me that some heavy weather is out in the Caribbean sea.

From Belmopan...

We have a large storm right on our door step this morning.

The wind directions have completely changed over night because this storm has wound up and is now seriously rotating. TROPICAL DEPRESSION FOURTEEN developed over night very rapidly. They now think it could reach Hurricane force winds as it crosses the Gulf up to Louisiana.

Our weather looks fairly typical, namely cloud, with a little blue sky patches, BUT no rain on land, and surprisingly, despite that very, very dark storm area, not much rain out at sea under that lot. But the winds are coming in from the NW and further south, from the west.

Looks as if this will result in a fairly pleasant weather day for us, cool, sun and cloud, but little or no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25C 76F Yesterday max. 30C 86F

There are quite a few rotating air masses at present. There is a small one that formed from a spin-off from Leslie, that could go to Florida. There is another north Atlantic rotation INVEST 92L, close to Spain, again the result of the Jet stream and effects from Leslie. Then there is the storm near to Belize, now called TROPICAL STORM MICHAEL which is behaving very oddly. I certainly can not see any high winds near its centre which I see as still 125 miles east of Chetumal at 1857'18.33"N 8532'46.28"W which is not where they say it is.

Regarding Michael, I have again, carefully checked their quoted location of 19.2 N 86.9 W. There are actually two different levels of cloud movement at that location and neither is moving at any storm speed. Looks to me as if they are measuring the outflow speed from the swellups much further to the east, nearer to where the actual centre of rotation is, also I do not see it as a Storm yet, but hay, if we say it is 40 mph who can challenge us, and 40 mph is Storm force. Very little rain, and what there is is moving away, towards the ESE, odd. How, why do they get these things wrong, perhaps because it is not yet a threat to the USA.

Even odder, in some respects. The easterly Caribbean winds and cloud has been going more or less normally over Cuba into the Gulf. But then turning round in the Gulf and coming down over southern Mexico and continuing to turn and come in over Belize from the west.

Is it the storm causing this Caribbean air to change direction, or is there something in the Gulf causing the wind to change direction and in turn, cause that cloud off Belize to develop into many ITCZ swellups, without much rain?

There are easterly Caribbean winds and clouds going over the Yucatan still and now. And as typical, they have been getting higher during the heat of the day, and clashing with high level winds from the SW as usual and developing many rain showers all over the Yucatan. Which are now coming down into Belize from the north. This is well away from the supposed storm.
