The Caribbean Sea

The GFS model, for 500 mb and for 700 mb, shows cyclonic wind flow in the western sections of the Caribbean Sea, from Jamaica westward, with an inverted trough. Comparatively drier air in subsidence covers the area that is from 08N in Venezuela to 20N between 60W and 70W, and from 10N to 23N between 70W and 80W. eastward, and in the Atlantic Ocean from 10N to 20N between 40W and 60W.

Broad surface low pressure covers the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea. The monsoon trough extends from 10N74W in northern Colombia, to 06N79W to south of Panama, and then northwestward into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Precipitation: scattered strong is from 10N southward between Colombia and 79W along the coast of Panama. Upper level SW wind flow is pushing the high level moisture from Costa Rica and Panama, to 20N near SE Cuba, from 66W westward.

The current Gulf of Mexico frontal boundary will move into the Yucatan Channel later today and stall, before moving northward again tonight. High pressure, building to the north of the front from the eastern Gulf of Mexico to the western Atlantic Ocean, will maintain fresh to occasionally strong trade winds off Colombia through the week. A stronger front will move through the Yucatan Channel into the northwest Caribbean Sea on Saturday. Long- period N swell, propagating through the Atlantic Ocean passages and the tropical Atlantic Ocean off the Leeward and Windward Islands, will diminish by Wednesday.

From the East at 6 mph the breeze is creating a calm sea state around our barrier reef. We have sprinkles of rain here and there with a partially clouded sky. The high temperature for the day is predicted to be 82 f.

The easterly Caribbean winds have lots of small chunky clouds in it, crossing over the coast line. There is warmer air extending up from the south and thin high level clouds from the west. There also looks as if there is some cooler air movement down over Guatamala. I suspect there was some fog, now causing a thin blanket of cloud up above the ground, this will dissipate being replaced by the Caribbean patchy clouds and sunshine.

Looks like today will be a mixture of sunshine and patchy clouds, possibly a few small rain showers near the coast.

The low cloud over Belmopan, is actually falling and developing into fog.
There are some clashes of high level causing small swell up in the Orange Walk coastal areas. Increasing chance or rain in coastal areas.

There is increasing clashing, mainly on the mainland north, so there can now be rain in any part of the north and central areas, and southern coastal areas.

The weather in our area getting very complex right now. Different air moving in different directions, easterly Caribbean winds. Cold air coming down from the north and patches of high level going in different directions. Causing some rain in some places.

Monthly Weather Summary, December 2019

National Meteorological Service of Belize

December marks the first month of the cool transition period between the rainy season and the dry season for Belize. This transition period typically lasts for about two to three months before the dry season sets in between mid February and early March. December is typically cool over the country with the main rainfall producers being cold fronts, prefrontal troughs and shear lines.

The first day of December 2019 was mainly fair as a light east to northeasterly airflow prevailed over the country then the flow became north to northeasterly on the second day as the first cold front of the month approached later that night. The front stalled and dissipated over the country resulting in light showers and rain mainly over the mountains and southern offshore areas from the 3rd to the 5th.

High pressure influence behind the front supported fair, mild and mostly dry conditions across the country from the 6th to the 10th. A stationary front over the Bay of Campeche induced a light to moderate east to northeasterly flow over the area that supported a few showers and isolated thunderstorms mostly over southern coastal areas on the 11th. A few showers persisted along the south coast and spread to central areas on the 12th and 13th becoming isolated by sunset on the 13th.

Generally fair conditions prevailed from the 14th to 16th as a weak pressure gradient dominated the northwest Caribbean and maintained a light east to northeasterly flow over the country.

A prefrontal trough supported a squall line during the early afternoon of the 17th that generated thunderstorms and showers mainly over northern inland and southern inland areas of the country. The activity continued overnight mainly over the north and west with some showers and rain persisting through to the 18th morning. Skies were overcast on the 18th and light rain affected most of the mainland while thunderstorms and showers remained offshore as the cold front crossed the country.

Cloudy and cool conditions along with a moderate west to northwesterly flow prevailed over the country from the 19th to the 21st after the passage of the front. Light rain affected the mainland and showers occurred offshore. The 22nd started off cloudy with mostly layered clouds that dissipated in the afternoon and a moderate to gusty north to northwesterly airflow prevailed. A few showers and light rain continued to affect northern portions of the country.

Mainly fair, cool and dry conditions persisted over the next few days from the 23rd through to the 25th as the airflow remained gusty and from the north to northwest up to the 24th then became light and northerly on Christmas day. The 26th to the 28th winds were light and variable as a slack pressure gradient dominated the Caribbean basin. A light east to southeasterly airflow and fair conditions prevailed over the country on the 29th. No rainfall occurred during this period.

The 30th of December was generally fair with only isolated showers as a light easterly airflow prevailed over the area while on the last day of the month a few showers affected the mainland especially central areas as another cold front approached the country.

The graphs and maps below summarize the total rainfall and average maximum and minimum temperature recorded during the month of December 2019. They also give an indication of how these readings compare to the normal for the month. Rainfall was below normal for northern and central inland areas of the country while it was above normal for central coastal and southern areas except for Melinda in the Stann Creek District. Maximum temperatures show above normal maximum/daytime temperatures, except for Savannah where the average maximum temperature for the month was slightly below normal and the Airport where the average maximum for the month was just about normal. Nighttime/minimum temperatures were near normal for most areas.
