The Caribbean Sea

A 1015 mb surface low is centered off the coast of Honduras near 17N85W. A stationary front extends north from the low to 22N77W then into the west Atlantic. Scattered showers are within 90 nm west of the front. Scatterometer data depicts moderate to fresh trades across the Caribbean. However, strong to near-gale winds will pulse at night near the coast of Colombia. Gentle winds are between eastern Cuba and Jamaica.

A weakening stationary front extending from eastern Cuba to 16N85W will dissipate later today, then drift westward into the Yucatan peninsula tonight as a surface trough. Fresh to strong winds will continue across the south-central Caribbean through Sat, with the strongest winds near the coast of Colombia each night. A cold front associated with an intense low pressure system north of the area will enter the NW Caribbean Thu night.

This morning on Ambergris Caye the North-West wind puts the barrier reef in the islands lee and the sea around it is flat calm. We have a sunny morning with the days expected high in the low 80's.

From Belmopan...

There is a ridge of low pressure off the Yucatan and Honduras coasts, causing distortions of the various low level air flows, several of which are on top of each other. The Caribbean winds continue to flow from the east, on top of the cool air, generally trying to come down from the north, yet our surface wind is from the SW, all leading to a chaotic weather these last few days. There is a little bit of rain out at sea, where the main cloud battle front is, but presently not near land.

Looks like today will continue to be cool, blustery and largely cloudy, but with some glimpses of sun.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 21C 69F Yesterday max. 25C 77F Yesterday Rain 0.4 mm ( 0.02" )

The Cloud picture. Complicated air and cloud movements. Cloudy again over Belmopan, did have large area of clear sky earlier, but there are several different levels of different cloud around Belize, but no rain on land.
