Belize Weather Forecast: June 23, 2020

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Partly cloudy this morning, dust obscuring the sky. Windy and hazy conditions prevail today, then a weak tropical wave will support a slight increase in moisture tonight. Dense Saharan dust covers most of the Caribbean.
Advisories: *A Small Craft Caution is in effect for gusty winds and locally rough seas. Reservoir levels remain above the spillway at the Chalillo, Mollejon and Vaca facilities, but are expected to recede during the next 24 hours.*
24-hour forecast: Sunny skies with a few cloudy spells and isolated showers or thunderstorms today, becoming cloudy at times tonight with a few showers and isolated thunderstorms over the south and coast.
Winds: E, 10-20 kts
Sea State: Moderate
Waves: 4-6 ft
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Sargassum Forecast: Latest observations continue to show a few sargassum mats drifting into coastal areas of the country. There is a medium chance of these mats affecting local beaches in the coming week causing moderate impacts.
Outlook: Some cloudy spells with a few showers or isolated thunderstorms over northern areas Wednesday morning, then becoming generally isolated.
Tropical Weather Outlook: At 3:00 pm yesterday the center of Sub-tropical Depression #4 was located near 38.2N latitude, 65.7W longitude or about 310 mls southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts. Elsewhere in the North Atlantic, Caribbean sea and Gulf of Mexico, tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 48 hours. Click for more...

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

GOES-16 satellite imagery shows dense Saharan dust covers most of the Caribbean. This dry, stable air mass is inhibiting convection across the region. The exception is the far SW Caribbean, where the east Pacific monsoon trough is enhancing scattered moderate to strong convection south of 10N and west of 80W, including over portions of Panama. At the surface, the pressure gradient between high pressure north of the area and climatological low pressure over Colombia is producing fresh to strong trades across central Caribbean, reaching near gale force near the coast of Colombia. Fresh to strong winds prevail over the Gulf of Honduras, and moderate winds are noted over the remainder of the NW Caribbean. Fresh winds prevail over the eastern Caribbean.

Fresh to strong trades will prevail across the central Caribbean through the week. Winds will pulse to near gale force off the coast of Colombia each night through Sat night with seas building to 12 ft and higher during the strongest winds. Fresh to strong winds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras through Sat night.

The easterly Caribbean winds now have Sahara Dust in it, now coming into central and north Belize. It stretches away as far as the West Indies, then there is a second lot in the east Atlantic. This appears to have already effected the westerly high level clouds. There is also cloud moving up from the south.

Looks as if today will be largely cloudy and dusty, with some sunshine, only a low chance of rain at present.

A Saharan Dust Plume made its way to the Garden City of Belmopan earlier this morning. US experts reported that the Dust would have made its way across the Caribbean as early as Wednesday. They reported that while it is a yearly phenomenon, this year is a unique one since the plumes are said to contain the highest concentration of particles in the past 50-60 years. Apart from providing spectacular sunrises and sunsets, lowering visibility and reducing air quality, the Saharan Dust can also trigger allergies.

The Reporter

"The much-anticipated Saharan dust plume is now making its more than 5,000-mile trek across the Atlantic to the United States.

The thick dust is clearly visible on satellite imagery, too. You can make it out by the brown sheen spreading off the African coast. It's so dense it's making it almost hard to tell where the continent ends and the ocean begins!"- CNN

Wear your mask, try to limit outdoor activities. Drink plenty of water. Asthmatic people keep your pumps with you. Employers please have mercy on your employees with allergies, asthma and respiratory problems. Be considerate. Stay safe and healthy Belize.

This morning I'm looking over the Bay of Corozal, the arrival of the Massive Saharan Dust Cloud which is moving in our area at this time. This morning it looks gloomy across the Bay. Photos by Belize Scoop

A giant plume of Saharan dust on a 5,000-mile journey is expected to drift across the southeastern United States this week at altitudes between 20,000 and 30,000 feet, bringing enhanced sunrises and potentially suppressing storm formation.
Because it is a dry layer of air, the dust helps suppress the development of tropical systems, according to the National Weather Service.

The dry nature of the air mass that originates from the Sahara limits thunderstorm and cloud development, which are needed for the development of tropical cyclones.
