The Caribbean Sea

High pressure over the central Atlc and lower pressure over Colombia is maintaining fresh to strong winds across much of the Caribbean, with winds to gale force off the coast of Colombia. Recent scatterometer passes have been showing this, and concurrent altimeter satellite passes along with various buoy data have been showing 12 to 16 ft seas over the area of strong winds and gales in the south central and southwest Caribbean, and 8 to 12 ft elsewhere south of 18N, to include the Gulf of Honduras. Fresh to occasionally strong NE winds have been pushing into the northern approaches to the Windward Passage as well. Generally moderate E winds with 5 to 8 ft seas are noted over the far northeast Caribbean. E swell reaching 8 ft has been propagating into the waters east of the Windward Islands, but a recent altimeter pass indicates this may be subsiding. Caribbean radar mosaics have been showing a few fast-moving trade wind showers mainly over the eastern Caribbean, but otherwise no significant showers or thunderstorms are noted.

For the forecast, winds and seas will diminish slightly through late week as the high pressure weakens and shifts ahead of a cold front moving into the far NW Caribbean Sat, before stalling and weakening Sun.

On Ambergris Caye this morning a strong wind from the East is making the sea around our barrier reef rough. The day is sunny with an expected high temperature in the upper 80's.

From Belmopan...

The whole area is just strong easterly Caribbean winds with patches of clouds. Some cloud has caused a few small areas of rain earlier, but most have now dried up.

Looks like a typical Caribbean weather, strong easterly winds, mainly sunshine, a small chance of the odd rain shower anywhere.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 22C 72F Yesterday max. 29C 84F Yesterday Rain 7.7 mm ( 0.3" )

2018 Belize Rainfall, Belmopan

December was dry, less than half the typical rainfall, but then again October was very wet. 2018 saw very erratic rain conditions, far from typical.

The heavy blue verticals are the daily rainfall as shown on the left and right scales.
The 4 lines are all /5 scale, to show a more meaningful indication.
The small dotted dark line is the Typical monthly rain averages.
The dashed dark line is the actual monthly averages for 2018, high in Jan, Feb and Oct, and low in Jun, Jul, Sep, Dec.
The light Blue line is effective water in the ground that all plants can access.
The light Green line is deeper water that deep rooted plants can access, and is slower to change.

The Cloud and rain picture. Those two cloud areas out in the Caribbean are partly the remnants of collapsed rain clouds. Their front line is still causing rain showers, the upper one going with the wind, towards north Belize. The lower one moving in the direction of its collapse, so going towards the NW, at central Belize, (Note wind direction and rain direction are not always the same.).

Tomorrows WEATHER for Thur 03 Jan 2019

Those heavier rain making clouds have now passed over Belize, leaving bright sunny conditions, which will continue for some time. ( Clear skies, not sunny over night :-) ) There is more cloud in the Caribbean that could bring similar conditions tomorrow as we saw today. Presently no rain showing even on the long 400km range radar.

Tomorrow Thu 03 Jan - looks as if it will start off with little or no cloud, some will develop during the morning, but thicker cloud could move in some time tomorrow, probably not much rain, if any.
