The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front is draped across the northwestern Caribbean from 21N80W to the Gulf of Honduras near 15N87W. Scattered moderate convection is seen within 60 nm of this front. Additionally, an upper level disturbance is digging across the NW Caribbean. This is enhancing scattered moderate to isolated strong convection in the SW Caribbean near northeast waters of Costa Rica to Nicaragua, from 10N-14N and west of 80W. Upper level ridging covers the eastern Caribbean which is inhibiting deep convection. Thunderstorms are seen in the Mona Passage but Puerto Rico eastward into the Lesser Antilles have benign conditions. A surface trough is visible in the latest scatterometer data extending from 17N72W to 23N70W. Moderate to fresh easterly trades is present over the eastern and central Caribbean while fresh to strong are seen north of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela.

A stationary front across the northwest Caribbean extending from central Cuba to 20N83W and to the central Gulf of Honduras is supporting strong northerly winds and high seas west of the front from the Yucatan Channel to the Gulf of Honduras. The front will gradually weaken through Fri night. High pressure north of the area will maintain fresh to strong trades and high seas in the tropical north Atlantic and most of the Caribbean through Mon. A cold front will move into the western Caribbean Sea Sun night into Mon and reach from near eastern Cuba to near the coast of southern Nicaragua on Tue. Fresh to strong northwest to north winds will follow in behind this front.

The cold air continues to push southwards and in doing so, the Caribbean winds are now being pushed from the NE but only out at sea. The High level clouds are still from the SW but beginning to thin, so presently we are no under bright overcast conditions. The surface wind is from the SW mountains. NASA still dead in the water and still no rain radar.

Looks as if the north of Belize might start to get some sunshine later and a lot by this afternoon, central and south Belize continuing heavy overcast cloud, but thinning some during the day. Presently, I do not think there is any rain and none expected on land.

The easterly Caribbean cloud are pushing back in over the cold air right now. NASA have got their site working again, the Met office hope to get their rain radar working later today or soon. There is a lot of rain out at sea, with swellups caused by the high level from the SW. But this is now causing some rain showers in a number of parts of Belize. I am not sure what will happen tonight, either the cold air will prevail with little or no rain, or the easterly Caribbean clouds could continue and cause more rain, it is all on a balance point right now. The coloured picture is not rain as such, but high clouds, which are very likely to be causing rain.
