The Caribbean Sea

Quiet weather prevails across the Caribbean. Only typical patches of low clouds and isolated showers exist in a few spots. The trade winds are strongest over the central Caribbean. A Gale is presently ongoing along the coast of N Colombia.

Fresh to strong trade winds will continue over the S central Caribbean Sea through Wednesday night and increase to near gale or gale force along the immediate coast of Colombia each night through Thu night. Moderate to locally fresh trade winds will prevail elsewhere. A strong cold front will enter the NW Caribbean Sea later this morning, then move SE and extend from central Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras tonight. The front will weaken but still extend from SE Cuba to the NW and N central coast of Honduras on Monday night, and then start to weaken and drift N from Cuba westward from Tuesday morning until Tuesday night. Fresh to strong NW to N winds and seas to 8 ft are expected W of the front, from Sunday morning until Monday night. Strong high pres building over the western Atlc will increase the pressure gradient over the basin Tue through Thu. As a result, strong winds will affect almost all of the eastern and central Caribbean during this time frame.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the the wind from the North-NW places our barrier reef in the islands lee and the sea around it is flat calm. The sea beyond is choppy but the snorkel and dive sites are in the lee. It's a sunny day with an expected high temperature in the upper 70's.

From Belmopan...

Cool air from the north and the high level cloud from the SW has caused cloud to develop over most of the Yucatan, right down over Belize into Honduras. This is stopping the Caribbean easterly forming a line of rain out at sea where they are clashing.

Today has started of very cloudy, but should thin, at least for north and central Belize during the day, no indication of rain on land.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 21C 70F Yesterday max. 29C 83F Yesterday Rain 1.8 mm ( 0.07" )

The Cloud and rain picture.

Complex clashing of cool air from the north and the higher level air from the SW, pushing back against the easterly Caribbean air causing a line of rain way out at sea, but also meeting warmer air rising up from the south. There was very little if any rain over Belize as this cloud came in over night, but it is heavy enough to be causing drizzle.

Tomorrows WEATHER for - Mon 21 Jan 2019

You see how hard it is to do Tomorrows weather. That cool air came down clashing and causing thick cloud over night, no hint of that happening until about 10pm last night.

The SW high level clouds causing most of the clashing have moved further south, mainly over Honduras. So the cool air has been able to continue coming down from the NNW over most of Belize by this evening, pushing the easterly Caribbean winds further back into the sea.

Looks as if Tomorrow will be cool air with few clouds, and probably little or no rain.
