The Caribbean Sea

...EXCESSIVE RAINFALL IN CENTRAL AMERICA AND MEXICO... TD Three is part of a larger Central American Gyre circulation that has been bringing heavy rainfall and flooding to portions of Central America and southern Mexico during the past few days. Additional heavy rainfall is expected over portions of southern Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize and Honduras. These rains could lead to additional life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in areas of mountainous terrain over portions of southern Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Scattered moderate to strong convection is occurring over much of Central America and the the Gulf of Honduras in association with the Central America Gyre. Elsewhere, scattered moderate convection is over the SW Caribbean from eastern Panama to northeast Nicaragua. Isolated trade wind showers are seen over the central and eastern Caribbean. Fresh to strong winds prevail over the Gulf of Honduras with 6 to 8 ft seas. Gentle to moderate winds prevail over the eastern Caribbean with 4 to 6 ft seas, and moderate to fresh winds prevail elsewhere with 5 to 7 ft seas.

The Central American Gyre, will persist over northern Central America and southern Mexico during the entire week leading to scattered showers and thunderstorms over the NW Caribbean. Winds and seas will increase in the Gulf of Honduras and off Yucatan through Sat as a result. The Bermuda High will rebuild to north of the basin today, which will lead to the development of fresh winds in the south-central Caribbean through Sat.

A flood alert is currently in effect and will continue for the remainder of the week, due to the remnants of Pacific Tropical Storm, Amanda, which crossed over the Central American isthmus over the weekend and dumped heavy rains over the area.

Rainfall over central and northwestern Belize between Saturday and today measured between 10 and 15 inches, causing flooding in vulnerable areas. Belmopan and areas along the Philip Goldson Highway were also inundated from Saturday morning.

Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Ronald Gordon says that the same general areas that have been affected by Amanda will continue to receive heavy showers, and the rains could also spread to other parts of the country as the system moves across to the Bay of Campeche and can likely redevelop. If that happens, Gordon says, it will assume the name Cristobal - the third Atlantic Storm name on this year's calendar.

Accuweather:
Tropical Depression Three will bring heavy rainfall over southeast Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize, Guatemala and parts of El Salvador and Honduras, with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 20 inches possible in some of the mountainous terrain of Central America. This heavy rainfall will cause life threatening flash flooding and higher terrain mudslides. By this weekend or early next week, as the storm moves northward, flooding concerns will escalate in the southern U.S.

This storm is still rotating around the same area, just off the west side of the Yucatan, but sending out rotating arms from time to time. These brought rain over Belize last evening and again early this morning. Looks like it will hang around for a few days.

Looks as if it will remain cloudy for most of the day, with some rain in some locations from time to time.

...DEPRESSION STRENGTHENS TO A TROPICAL STORM...

Observations from an Air Force Reserve Unit Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that Tropical Depression Three has strengthened into Tropical Storm Cristobal (pronounced krees-TOH-bahl). The maximum winds are estimated to be 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

It's centered as of 11:15 a.m. CDT about 150 miles (245 km) west-southwest of Campeche, Mexico, moving toward the west-southwest at 3 mph (km/h).

=====================
Depression strengthens to Tropical Storm Cristobal in the Bay of Campeche

As of Tuesday early afternoon EDT, Tropical Depression 3 has strengthened into Tropical Storm Cristobal. The storm continues to move very slowly in the Bay of Campeche, about 150 miles west-southwest of Campeche, Mexico. Maximum-sustained winds are near 40 mph. Cristobal is the third tropical storm to form in the basin this year.

Some further strengthening is expected during the next 24-48 hours, but interaction with land may impact how much it strengthens during this time. Tropical Storm Cristobal is expected to loop around near and over the southern coast of the Bay of Campeche Wednesday and Thursday, then slowly move northward Friday and this coming weekend, potentially bringing impacts to portions the Gulf Coast later this weekend or early next week. All interests along the central and western Gulf coast should start paying attention and consider taking action should the system approach the area.

Cristobal will continue to bring heavy rainfall over southeastern Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize, Guatemala and parts of El Salvador and Honduras, with an AccuWeather Local StormMax&trade of 30 inches possible in some of the mountainous terrain of Central America. This heavy rainfall will cause life-threatening flash flooding and higher-terrain mudslides. By this weekend or early next week, as the storm moves northward, flooding concerns will escalate in the southern United States.

Elsewhere in the basin, there are no other tropical systems and none are expected to develop through at least the end of the week.

The storm is still circulating around the same western Yucatan, but it is sending another arm of rain towards Belize this evening, a small area already in north west Belize now, and sending arms of cloud and some rain in at us from the west. There has been heavy cloud with lightning, sitting almost still over the Belize north coastal area, including San Pedro most of the day, which must be having significant rain.

Bands from the system have been supporting persistent showers, periods of rain and thunderstorms over the Belize City and surrounding areas...

Heavy Rains Result in Flash Floods!

Heavy rains over the weekend resulted in flash floods in a number of countries where deaths were recorded in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. According to the National Met Service, Belize experienced upwards of ten inches of rainfall as a result of a low pressure system that passed over the country. The heavy downpour on Friday night caused flooding in Mahogany Heights, Saint Matthew’s Village and other areas with flood waters covering portions of the George Price Highway. Tonight, those flood waters have displaced thirteen adults and thirteen children who are now in a shelter in Saint Matthew’s village. On Saturday, residents reported that they experienced ten hours of heavy rains on Friday night which washed away crops, chickens and other belongings. Here’s the story.
