The Caribbean Sea

15-25 kt tradewinds are over the Caribbean Sea with strongest winds along the coast of N Colombia. Scattered moderate to isolated strong convection is over the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize, Guatemala, the Gulf of Honduras, and W Honduras. Widely scattered moderate convection is also over N Colombia. In the upper levels, a ridge is over the Caribbean with upper level moisture.

The gradient between high pressure northeast of the region near 28N56W and low pressure in Colombia will support fresh to strong easterly winds in the south-central Caribbean and the Gulf of Honduras through Tue. Smoke and haze from ongoing agricultural fires could reduce visibilities north of Honduras.

Man was that some rain early this morning, Belmopan had heavy rains, over 40mm ( 2" ) from around about 2:30 to 4:30am
It was not due to those rains I showed in my last message last night, they did not get into Belize, but a separate major swellup that occurred on top of south and central Belize. Most of central and south Belize had a lot of rain, I think Belize City escaped most of it. The rain has now moved off shore, no rain presently in Belize.

The high level cloud that cause that early morning rain is now thinning over Belize and there should be some sunshine later this morning. But there is unstable air in the area, so it is possible for another swellup this afternoon.

We continue to have lightning after the rain had finally stopped on us yesterday, for about 1/2 hour or more, one just above our heads. Last night in Succotz there was a horrific electrical storm from 1:30 to 3 am. Strobe lightning, rolling thunder, thunder bolts and lightning bolts, and rain of course.

These swellups, are due to unstable, humid air. Yesterday, the temperatures got rather hot, this caused several swellups to occur. The hot humid air rises, as it rises, it cools slightly, causing the high humidity to condense out, which forms into clouds, but in doing so, releases heat, which then causes it to continue rising, and in these cases, due to the large areas, they go up and up, and helped by the SW high level winds, which are also humid.

It is air moving up, against other areas of air, that result in the clouds charging up, and causing the lightning strikes. Lightning is about air rubbing against air, not about rain. . . But usually such rapid air rising, causing lightning will also cause rain, as we had early this morning. One strike sounded as if it was only 100 feet away from me, but did not knock out our power, but one later, cause the power to briefly trip, shutting down my computer, which is on a 3 minute re-set time delay protection.

You can see the swelling up of the cloud in this picture just north of the Yucatan, right now.
