The Caribbean Sea

An upper-level trough is over the NW Caribbean, while upper-level ridging covers the southern portion of the basin. Upper-level diffluence between these upper-level features is enhancing scattered moderate convection from 15N-20N between 75W-87W, including the waters west of Jamaica to the Gulf of Honduras. The weather is quieter over the central and eastern basin, with isolated showers seen stretching from the northern Leeward Islands to Puerto Rico and Hispaniola. A 1007 mb low pressure over Northern Colombia with Pacific monsoon trough continuing westward is enhancing scattered moderate isolated strong convection over Panama and Colombia. Strong gradient across the Caribbean is increasing easterly trades across the basin from the Windward Passage south to Colombia. ASCAT pass shows fresh to strong trades in the central Caribbean and moderate to fresh winds elsewhere.

Fresh to strong trades and building seas over the central and eastern Caribbean will continue through Wed as high pressure north of the area shifts eastward. Strong winds will persist near the coast of Colombia through Sat night. A strong cold front will cross the Yucatan Channel Wed, extend from western Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras Wed night, then become stationary and weaken over the NW Caribbean Thu into Thu night. Strong northerly winds behind the front will result in heavy rainfall amounts over NW Honduras to central Guatemala Wed into Thu. Winds and seas will gradually diminish over the NW Caribbean Fri into Sat. Mixed northerly swell and easterly wind waves will maintain seas 8 ft or greater over the Tropical N Atlantic waters for the next several days before diminishing on Fri.

A fair amount of fog around this morning, and easterly Caribbean clouds, probably some rain along some of the coast. too early to actually see very much. The Caribbean winds further out are from the SE, showing a split in the weather. The main clashing or ITCZ activity has moved further into the Caribbean well away from Belize, but there is significant cloud over many parts of Belize, some it will thin this morning as the sun begins to appear.

Too early to see, but looks as if today will be a mixed weather day, significant cloud, some sunshine and a risk of some rain.

Significant clouds still crossing slowly over Belize, with some sunshine between them, some clouds are heavy and could be dropping some rain in a few places, both inland, but more likely along the coast line.
