The Caribbean Sea

Convection over the NW Caribbean is associated with a tropical wave. Scattered moderate convection is seen over northern Colombia and adjacent waters south of 12N between 75W-80W. Drier air is over the E Caribbean E of 73W with little to no significant showers. The latest ASCAT pass from Monday evening shows strong trades in the south-central Caribbean, with fresh trades over the remainder of the central Caribbean.

A tropical wave over the western Caribbean near 84W will exit the basin tonight.

The next tropical wave will move across the Lesser Antilles on Wed night, but this will be a rather dry wave.

We are monitoring a tropical wave with a developing LOW-PRESSURE AREA near the Central America country of Honduras. This LOW-PRESSURE AREA is drifting in a general west-northwest direction and will likely be in the Gulf Of Mexico mid to late week, August 21-25. 2019. Thus, this area must be monitored for the potential of CYCLONE development into a possible TROPICAL DEPRESSION, TROPICAL STORM, or HURRICANE.

Although wind shear is strong in the west and northwest Gulf of Mexico; sea temperatures are very warm; thus we will be monitoring possible CYCLONE development especially towards this weekend, August 23-25, 2019.

People in northeast Mexico + Texas + Lousiana, monitor this tropical system for further development, August 19-26, 2019, which at the moment has yet to be designated or investigated by the National Hurricane Center-Miami.

There is a whole swath of high level clouds coming up from the south this morning, causing very many swellups, presently only two near or over Belize, causing rain in the south and now in the Stann Creek district. This could cause more rain in central and or north area later this morning. Yet there is high level from the north over Guatamala, looks as if we are in a high level low pressure area.

Looks like today will be very variable, rain in the south, sun and cloud in the north, a chance of rain, some heavy in any part of Belize later.

Continually changing weather and even the patterns through the day.
Scattered showers continuing, out of the easterly Caribbean winds, aggravated by the high level winds, only a few very small swellups.
