The Caribbean Sea

A cold front passes through Florida to 26N82W along the SW coast of Florida, into the Gulf of Mexico, and beyond NW Cuba, to the SE part of the Yucatan Peninsula, and touching the border area of Mexico and northern Guatemala. A squall line is within 100 nm to the east of the cold front, from the Florida Keys northward. Isolated moderate to locally strong rainshowers cover parts of Central America and the Caribbean Sea from NW Nicaragua to 18N near the Gulf of Honduras between 85W and 89W.

The GFS model for 250 mb shows a trough passing through NW Cuba to northern Costa Rica. The GFS model for the surface shows a broad trough along roughly the same position.

The current cold front, extending from the western tip of Cuba to the Yucatan Peninsula near the Belize/Mexico border with strong thunderstorms ahead of it, will push to the Gulf of Honduras on Saturday, before dissipating on Sunday. High pressure near Bermuda is supporting generally moderate to fresh trade winds across the Caribbean Sea and tropical N Atlantic Ocean, with the exception of strong NE winds N of Colombia. The high pressure will weaken during the next few days, causing the trade winds to diminish through Wednesday night. No significant long-period swell is anticipated to reach the tropical North Atlantic Ocean zones through at least Wednesday night.

Cool, Calm after the storm. The cool clear air is completely over Belize now, but just holding the Caribbean cloud just off shore. There does not appear to be any rain in the heavy Caribbean cloud, which is, in places, trying to move back in, but mainly being diverted southwards by the cool, cloud free, dry air from the north.

Looks like it will be mainly sunny, but the Caribbean clouds are likely to start getting back over Belize later today.

The Caribbean air appears to have been held back or diverted downwards over Honduras, only a small amount of mid or high level cloud around. . . There is SW heavier clouds further south, over Guatamala, bit it does not look as if it will effect Belize.

Looks like tomorrow, Sunday, will be mainly sunny, perhaps just a little cloud around, probably now rain.
