On Ambergris Caye this morning the breeze is from the West at 9 mph placing the barrier reef in the lee of the island, creating a calm sea around it. It's going to be hot on the isla today with an expected high temperature of 91 f.

There is not much weather activity now over Belize, just a little high level cloud from the north. The regular Caribbean winds are being pushed up the Caribbean by the earlier west wind, which is now dying down. There have been many clashes of winds, causing rain out at sea but not near land. The Caribbean easterly winds should start to re-establish later this morning, and some clouds will also develop later.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, with some clouds developing during the day, no indication of rain as yet.

The pressure relaxed last night and this morning the eye has been collapsing, so it is clearly reducing in strength. It is a small sized hurricane, so was able to wind up fast and tight. Now Cat.4 HURRICANE DORIAN

There is now some change in the cloud activity over Belize.
The high level cloud from the north, is now clashing with thermal clouds over Belize and causing increasing number of rain showers, some heavy. Incidentally, HURRICANE DORIAN has come to a stop, and is actually slowly moving towards the NE right on top of some of the northern Bahamas islands.

One disturbance to mention is the one that I am going to be keeping a very close eye on as it actually may be a threat way down the road. This disturbance is still located over western Africa and is expected to push off of the coast of Africa into the far eastern Atlantic around Wednesday or Thursday. There is the potential for this tropical disturbance to develop as we get into this weekend and next week as it moves westward across the eastern and central Atlantic and pushes towards the Lesser Antilles.

At this point, it probably wont be until next weekend (weekend of September 14-15) at the earliest that this disturbance could be a threat to the Lesser Antilles, so we have plenty of time to keep an eye on it.

Additionally, there are strong signs in the data that suggest the weather pattern will switch to a broad ridge of high pressure from the eastern United States into the western Atlantic at the middle of this month. Should this happen, with this tropical disturbance pushing westward at the same time, it could end up being something that could be a problem for the Caribbean and the southeastern United States. Again, long, long ways out and lots and lots of time to keep an eye on it.
