The Caribbean Sea

The GFE model for 250 mb, and the current water vapor satellite imagery, show broad upper level anticyclonic wind flow across the Caribbean Sea. Comparatively drier air is apparent in water vapor imagery from 70W eastward. Precipitation: rainshowers are possible, in broken low level clouds, to the east of the line that extends from SE Cuba to the Peninsula de la Guajira of N Colombia. The 24-hour precipitation total, in inches, ending at 01/0000 UTC, for Guadeloupe, is : 0.30.

A ridge over the western Atlantic will maintain fresh trade winds in the central Caribbean through Sun. Gentle to moderate winds are expected elsewhere. Smoke from agricultural fires in Central America may cause haze and reduced visibilities in the Gulf of Honduras and east of the Yucatan peninsula.

Hazy morning on Ambergris Caye
Smoke from Bacalar fire
Pushing mosquitos down. Have not seen them in months.
Light breeze; calm seas
Some Belizans passing by going fishing. They can do it with a license.

A lot of people are buying water. Their cisterns are running dry. We have only about 3-4 week supply.
And no rain in sight!


From Belmopan....
Woke up before 6am with an aircraft presumably doing water bombing runs to the east of Belmopan, presumably, somehow refilling at the Belmopan air strip. The sun was very red through the smoke filled clouds. Still doing those runs now. The Caribbean winds stills topped in their tracks by this mass from the north, which caused another flare up over PK area and another one out at sea this morning. It is not clear what is happening over Belize this morning, but there is significant cloud in most area, particularly over the mountains, and high level thin cloud from the SW

Looks as if today will be a rather cloudy day, hazy sun and just possibly swellups this evening.

Belizeans, particularly in the north, were woken up by the strong smell of smoke during the early hours before sunrise today. It seems that as the winds shifted to the north east last night they carried smoke from wild fires in Mexico down to the country.

Reports are that there are uncontrollable wild fires producing huge smoke waves in Coloņa Diego Rojas, Bacalar, Mexico. Residents of the area are battling with extinguishing the blaze. The smoke is causing much respiratory problems as there are more fires like these in the surrounding areas. Heavy smoke blankets the state of Quintana Roo and neighboring Chetumal City across the border.

From Belmopan:

Some of the small clouds coming down from the north are developing now and encountering the high level winds from the SW. . As a result, some are now starting to swell up into unstable cumulus clouds, which may turn into cumulonimbus clouds dropping rain. Looks like much of the western Toledo is getting rain right now or soon, and other clouds coming down through the Orange Walk district, might, just might be bringing rain into Cayo a little later this afternoon.

Cant see anything outside, the smoke in the sky, makes it hard to see what the clouds are doing, but I will go by what my body can feel, there is rain about, just not sure where yet.
