The Caribbean Sea

The GFS model for 700 mb shows a trough that extends from the coast of Honduras to NW Cuba. A surface trough curves from the coastal waters of NE Nicaragua, into the coastal waters of Honduras, to NE Belize. Precipitation: widely scattered moderate to isolated strong is within 120 nm to the north and east of the surface trough.

The GFS model from the surface to at least 700 mb shows broad low pressure/cyclonic wind flow in the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea. Precipitation: isolated moderate to locally strong is within 100 nm of the coast of Central America from the western half of Panama to NE Nicaragua.

Fresh W wind flow will persist along the coast of Honduras this evening, as winds funnel between the coastline and a trough that is about 60 nm N of the coast of Honduras. High pressure to the N of the area will maintain fresh to strong trade winds and large sea heights in the central and eastern Caribbean Sea, and in the Tropical N Atlantic Ocean through Sunday night. The winds near the coast of Colombia will pulse to near gale-force speeds at night through Sunday. A cold front will cross the Yucatan Channel late on Sunday. The front will weaken on Monday, as it enters the NW Caribbean Sea. Strong N winds will follow the front along the E coast of Nicaragua on Tuesday and Tuesday night.

Overcast all over Belize at present. There appear to be three different air movements, actually four. The easterly Caribbean winds are moving over the southern half of Belize, not easily seen, due to the high level clouds from the west. Clashing continues to cause significant activity way off shore and probably a lot of rain out there, but not on land. But there is a significant cloud movement over northern Belize, going northwards, not clear where this is originating from as not seen over south Belize, just looks as if the Caribbean cloud suddenly decided to push the cold air away to the north. The surface, or land wind over Belmopan is the "Tiger" wind from the mountains to the SW, hi does not have any cloud with it.

Looks as if today is a bit mixed, cloud over most or all Belize, moving in three different directions, little or no sun today, and could be the odd rain shower.
