More scattered showers are over Hispaniola, E Cuba, Costa Rica, and W Panama. 10-20 kt tradewinds are over the Caribbean Sea with strongest winds along the coast of N Colombia. In the upper levels, strong subsidence covers the entire Caribbean Sea. Light to medium smoke is noted over the Gulf of Honduras.

Winds will pulse to fresh to strong in the south central Caribbean, expanding to cover the entire central Caribbean by early next week as the pressure gradient tightens, to include off the northern coast of Honduras. Elsewhere, gentle to moderate winds will prevail, increasing early next week.

Conditions are becoming favorable for a heavy rainfall event over Hispaniola on Sunday and Monday. Strong forcing is expected on Monday evening as a subtropical jet maxima streams south of the island. Expect 1-3 inches per day with a maximum of 4-6 inches. Severe convection is expected with a higher risk for the Haitian Peninsula and interior portions of the island. Flash flooding is possible.

There is another cool air push down from the States, over the Gulf, now causing air and cloud to be coming in from the NW effecting southern Belize and now backing off the easterly Caribbean winds over northern Belize. What with the smoke dust in the air, this is not causing any rain around at present, but I think there may be some rain as a result, over the next couple of days.

Looks as if today will be another hazy day, with increasing cloud this morning, probably no rain, could be a little late this afternoon.

The cool air from the NW has stopped the easterly Caribbean wind over much of Belize now, the high level not presently causing any clashing, but might, late this afternoon.

Tomorrows WEATHER for - Sat 27 Apr 2019

Not sure what all this cloud down from the north will do over night or tomorrow. Not seeing much rain from it in Belize. Looks as if the north winds are bring back smoke dust with it.

Tomorrow, Saturday may well be cloudy, but a mixed weather, with smoky haze sky again and a small chance of some rain showers. Probably another miserable muggy day due to all the man-made fires around.
