The Caribbean Sea

A trough from 250 mb to 700 mb passes across Cuba to Honduras and Nicaragua. A surface trough is in the NW corner of the Caribbean Sea, along 85W/86W from Honduras northward. Scattered to numerous strong rainshowers are in the coastal waters of Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua, from 10N80W to 12N82W. Widely scattered moderate to isolated strong rainshowers are in the open waters from 10N to 20N between Jamaica and 86W.

The monsoon trough is along 08N/09N between 74W and 80W in Panama, and then continuing northwestward from Panama beyond NW Costa Rica. Scattered moderate to strong rainshowers, in clusters, from 06N to 10N between 76W and 83W.

The combination of a 74W/75W tropical wave, and high pressure to the north of the area, will support a pressure gradient that will allow for fresh to strong east winds in the south central Caribbean Sea through early Wednesday. Fresh to strong east winds are expected again in the Gulf of Honduras tonight, then diminish to moderate to fresh speeds through the remainder of the forecast period.

While tropical storm formation has been scarce so far this tropical season, the area near Central America may become a breeding ground for tropical activity later this week.

Over Central America, patches of heavy rain and thunderstorms will continue to gather compliments of a large and slowly-spinning, non-tropical storm, called a gyre.

"The large gyre over Central America will continue to bring an active pattern to northern Central America and southern Mexico the next few days," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Max Vido.

"Periods of heavy rain will continue to effect these areas over the next several days, leading to flooding and potentially higher-terrain mudslides from Columbia to southeastern Mexico," Vido added.

As a bit of energy from a tropical wave reaches this gyre, it may give birth to a tropical depression over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico later this week, unless a depression forms on the Pacific side of Central America instead.

Should a tropical depression develop in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico later this week, steering breezes may direct the feature northward toward the Texas coast with perhaps additional strengthening.

The Caribbean is very active this morning, many swellups all over the place, but presently non on Belize, but the cloud over southern Belize is getting very thick and causing a few rain showers.

Looks like there could be some significant rain showers in any part of Belize today.
