The Caribbean Sea

As of 21/0300 UTC, a cold ront extends from W Cuba near 22N85W to Belize near 18N88W. A prefrontal trough extends from W Cuba near 23N81W to beyond the Cayman Islands near 19N85W. Scattered moderate convection is within 60 nm of the prefrontal trough. Observations from Havana Cuba registered wind gusts near 50 knots with the surface trough.

An upper level ridge axis extends from the S Bahamas to N Colombia. Scatterometer data depicts moderate to fresh winds south of Jamaica into NW Colombia. Convection is very limited as upper level ridge remains in control. Scattered showers are noted along the coast of northwest portion of Colombia into Panama and Costa Rica. Most of these showers are associated with the surface trough extending into the Pacific.

Fresh to locally strong winds will continue across the south- central Caribbean through Tue, increasing to near gale force along the NW coast of Colombia during the overnight hours. Strong southerly flow will continue over the NW Caribbean ahead of a cold front across the Yucatan Channel. The front will reach from the Windward Passage to Costa Rica on Sat morning, then drift S and gradually dissipate through Sun. Strong northerly winds are expected W of the front on Fri and Fri night, increasing to near gale force along the coast of Nicaragua.

From Belmopan...

The cool air has really pushed back strongly over the whole of the Yucatan and Belize and now pushing fast into Honduras. It has thin lines of cloud in it, there is still some fog or low clod over the southern tip of Belize, but even that will be clearing shortly.

Looks like today should be a sunny day for most of us, just lines of thin cloud around, no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 22C 71F Yesterday max. 30C 87F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0.0" )

The Cloud picture. There is a large area of rotating air in the north Gulf, with its arm swinging westwards over the Yucatan and Belize, bringing thin lines of clouds behind it. No rain in sight.
