The Caribbean Sea

A 1032 mb high pressure north of the area is inducing widespread fresh to strong trade winds over most of the Caribbean basin. Earlier scatterometer data showed gale-force winds near the coast of Colombia. Expect for these winds to prevail through tonight, with gale-force winds pulsing off of Colombia's coast through this morning. Refer to the Special Features section for more details.

Winds and seas will diminish late in the week as the high pressure shifts east ahead of another cold front. This cold front is expected to move into the northwest Caribbean by late Thu. The front will stall and dissipate from central Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras by late Fri.

From Belmopan...

Odd weather this morning, the high level, now mid-level cloud has pushed over Belize over night. This has resulted in two lines or waves of cloud crossing over Belize from the west, which are fighting with the Caribbean easterly wind. This is resulting in a couple of lines of rain, one just moving inland over Belize City, the other out at sea moving away from land. Much of Belize is presently in sunshine, although cloud over most of the Orange Walk district and the western mountains. But mid-level cloud is coming in from the west and will cover most of Belize in the next few hours, but may well thin as it does, as the day warms up. There is a strong "Tiger" surface wind from the SW.

Looks as if today will start sunny for many, then become cloudy, then get sun and cloud, the morning rain in the Belize district will probably stop soon, probably only little or no rain later today.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 19°C 71°F Yesterday max. 23°C 84°F Yesterday Rain 0.0 mm ( 0.00" )

On Ambergris Caye this morning the winds seem to be taking turns from North to South and the barrier reef is angry. We have rain and overcast sky with a very rough sea state.

Tomorrows WEATHER for - Fri 25 Jan 2019

Looks as if this cool air from the NNW will continue over night into tomorrow, not bringing rain, but sort of fighting the easterly Caribbean winds.

Looks as if tomorrow will continue to be cloudy with some sunshine, probably no rain at least in the morning, but could be some rain if the Caribbean easterly winds do come in again.
