Outlook N-NW 15-25 kts Moderate-Rough 6-8 ft COOL AND WINDY WITH ISOLATED SHOWERS OR PERIODS OF RAIN ALONG THE COAST AND OFFSHORE.

The Caribbean Sea

Upper level ridging continues to dominate the basin. This is bringing relatively dry air into the area and inhibiting deep convection. However, two areas of moisture are observed on the latest TPW is moving across the eastern and central Caribbean. This is bringing scattered showers across Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Hispaniola and Jamaica. The latest scatterometer data depicts fresh to strong trades north of Colombia. Moderate to fresh southerly winds are noted in the NW Caribbean ahead of the incoming system in the Gulf. Gentle to moderate trades are in the eastern Caribbean.

The Bermuda High north of the area is supporting fresh to strong trades off Colombia through Sat night. These will diminish as the high shifts eastward. A cold front will move through the Yucatan Channel into the NW Caribbean late Sat, followed by strengthening N winds and building seas. The front will extend from E Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras Sun afternoon, then weaken and dissipate on Mon. The trades will strengthen again over the central and W Caribbean Tue night and Wed as a strong Bermuda High redevelops north of the area. Moderate long-period NW swell will reach the tropical N Atlantic waters beginning on Tue.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have a breeze from the North at 5 kts. placing our barrier reef in the islands lee. The sky is clear, it's a sunny morning with an expected high temperature for the day set at 84 f. Today is a good example of what an exception our islands weather is from the general forecast of the country. Take a look at the windfinder map above.

Beautiful photo!!!!

The Caribbean winds have been pushed way up north away from Belize, but the warmer air from the south, and now there is very heavy, significant clouds coming down from the NW over the Yucatan, Mexico and Guatamala. Both the south clouds and these new NW clouds originated from ITCZ activity over the Pacific, so should both be from the SW, but there is cool air coming down from the north over the Gulf. This has been clashing with the high level cloud and forming a ridge of clouds which I would have thought could be causing rain, but none showing at present on the now working Radar.

Looks as if today is starting off as sun and clouds, but will get heavier clouds coming in this morning, possibly with rain.

Running blind again, the NASA satellite cloud pictures have failed again, stuck on 08 am this morning. Other satellite pictures do not properly show clouds as such. The visible clouds are coming in from the west, there is a strong surface wind from the SW, which usually indicates things are changing. The Radar has shown just a few tiny rain spots above Ambergris caye, and just starting a little in North Guatamala. So it does look as if there is possibly rain coming in from the NW later today.

The cool air and cloud is streaming down from the north over the whole of the Yucatan and over Belize. It has pushed the rain front way out to sea now. So looks as if a large amount of cool air coming down, presently with plenty of cloud, but this is likely to be clearing from the north by morning, clear skies later tomorrow, initially in the north of Belize.
