The Caribbean Sea

1023 mb high pressure is centered north of the area over the western Atlantic between Bermuda and the northern Bahamas. 1006 mb low pressure is centered over northern Colombia. The pressure gradient between these two features is tight enough to support fresh to strong winds off higher terrain along the coasts of Colombia and Honduras. Seas in these areas are estimated to be 6 to 9 ft. Moderate trade winds and 4 to 6 ft seas prevail elsewhere across the Caribbean. Radar displays across the region show a few showers in the trade wind flow over the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Otherwise no significant shower or thunderstorm activity is noted over the water.

For the forecast, the high pressure north of the area will continue to maintain fresh to strong winds off Honduras and Colombia through late Tue, pulsing to near gale force off Colombia tonight through late Mon. Winds and seas will start to diminish by the middle of the week as the high pressure weakens and shifts eastward.

The Caribbean winds are presently from the SE with thin cloud over most of north Belize and coastal areas further south. But the Haze that we have been experiencing over the last few days is heavier this morning and you can now clearly see it out at sea. It looked originally as significant water vapour, but the orange tint to it says other wise. And as you can see, there are so very many fires around that it is putting so much smoke up very high into the air. Not only does this cause a significant blanket, keeping night temperatures up high, but also adding to the heat, being brought from Guatamala by the high SW winds.

Looks as if today will be a hot hazy day, definitely no rain, although those swellups will probably happen over Guatamala mountains this evening.
