The Caribbean Sea

...EXCESSIVE RAINFALL IN CENTRAL AMERICA AND MEXICO... Tropical Storm Cristobal is part of a larger Central American Gyre circulation (CAG). Heavy rainfall and severe flooding have been impacting parts of Central America and southern Mexico during the last several days. Additional heavy rainfall is expected through Friday night. Abundant tropical moisture in a southwesterly wind flow will continue to impact SE Mexico and northern Central America. More heavy rain are expected in El Salvador, with additional 10 to 15 inches of rain, mainly from This afternoon through early Saturday. It is possible that Belize and Honduras may receive 3 to 6 inches of rain. It is possible that the rainfall in all of these areas may produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

Upper level anticyclonic wind flow associated with T.S. CRISTOBAL, that is inland in southern Mexico, covers the Caribbean Sea from 70W westward. Precipitation: isolated moderate to locally strong is from 14N northward from 70W westward in general.

Upper level cyclonic wind flow covers the rest of the Caribbean Sea, from 70W eastward. The base of an upper level western Atlantic Ocean-to-Caribbean Sea trough is reaching the eastern half of the coast of Venezuela. Precipitation: isolated moderate to locally strong is from 70W eastward.

A part of the monsoon trough extends from northern Colombia in the part that is to the north of 10N, across the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea, to north central Nicaragua. Precipitation: widely scattered moderate to isolated strong is in the area from 15N southward and 78W westward.

A broad area of low pressure, known as the Central American Gyre, will persist over northern Central America and southern Mexico for several days, producing widespread showers and thunderstorms in the NW Caribbean through Saturday. Strong SE winds and building seas will continue in the Gulf of Honduras and east of Yucatan through Saturday evening. Winds may reach gale force near the Yucatan Channel Friday through Saturday. Fresh to strong trade winds will continue in the central Caribbean through Saturday.

Yesterday, I could pin the centre of rotation down to about 10 miles, this morning there is no clear area for the rotation, but what ever is happening, it appears to be broken up and very wide and not all that far from our western border. Basically I am no longer seeing a tropical storm. The hurricane people also admit it has weakened.

It looks as it a lot of cloud from TS CRISTOBAL will be coming over Belize, from the west. There could be some rain, possibly some heavy, presently, most likely over the south west of Belize, then later further north.

The storm has very significantly reduced in its rotation speed. I see even the hurricane people have now derated it to just a depression. But that leaves a lot of cloud. . . But unusually it is covering a very, very large area. I have been able to show its centre, but this is now simply a location, not an active thing. But it does mean the heavy cloud has moved even closer to Belize again. But despite the cloud, there is very little indication of actual rain, no lightning any where near. I am not expecting much rain in Belize, but there could be. . . There has been a lot of rain up in the north Yucatan, where the storm sat for several days and is still causing rain up their even now.

This system is really large.
The SE Caribbean winds appear to be feeding moisture into its underside.
So now it has extended to cover Florida even and way out into the Pacific.

Notice from the Officer in Charge, Superintendent Christopher Noble:
‘Goodnight everyone, once again the weather is not on our side so check your assets. Officers have been spoken to extend courtesies (past curfew hours).’

National MET Service - Recent satellite imagery and our lightning detection network shows heavy showers and strong thunderstorms have been affecting mostly central and northern areas of the country. Severe and dangerous thunderstorms are possible in these areas and a flood alert remains in effect for low-lying and flood prone areas of the country, especially near rivers and streams. Residents are advised to take precaution to protect lives and property

Effects from Tropical Storm Cristobal felt in Belize

While Tropical Storm Cristobal formed in the Gulf of Mexico and made landfall in the Bay of Campeche, the effects were felt in several parts of Belize. In the cayes, islanders are experiencing serious beach and road infrastructure damage. Jorge Aldana reports. The National Hydrological Service issued its third advisory for this week surrounding the country’s rivers and waterways.

The latest report indicates that the Rio Bravo and Blue Creek Sub catchment of the Rio Hondo remains well above flood stage; Levels at San Antonio, San Roman and Santa Cruz and Douglas are rising steadily. The New River at Caledonia has exceeded its banks and continues to rise. On the Macal River, reservoir levels remain below the spillways at Chalillo, Mollejon and Vaca facilities. At San Ignacio, levels remain below the low-level bridge but is gradually rising. The Mopan River at Benque Viejo Town is above normal and declining. On the Belize River, levels at Banana Bank continue to fall. The Crooked Tree Lagoon is below the causeway and rising steadily.

At Double Run,levels are above normal and rising. The Sibun River near Freetown Sibun is flooded and continues to rise. Levels are steady on the Southern Lagoon near Gales Point Village.
