Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

An upper level low is centered near 18N75W. This low is helping enhance convection between Jamaica and the west coast of Haiti. GOES-16 satellite imagery shows Saharan dust continues across the Caribbean Sea. The densest areas of dust are west of 70W, where the dust is helping to bring hazy conditions. The dry and stable air mass that accompanies the dust it is helping to suppress precipitation across much of the Caribbean Sea. The dust is less dense east of 70W. Over these waters, there is enough moisture to support isolated low topped tradewind showers. Strong to near gale force winds prevail across the south central Caribbean. Fresh to strong winds prevail over the Gulf of Honduras, as well as the Windward Passage. Moderate to fresh winds prevail across the remainder of the Caribbean waters.

Fresh to strong trades will prevail across the south central Caribbean through Sun. Winds will pulse to near gale force off the coast of Colombia each night through Sun night with seas building to 11 or 12 ft during the strongest winds. Fresh to strong winds are expected to continue across the Gulf of Honduras through Sun.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have an overcast sky from the Saharan Dust. The wind is from the East at 17 mph. creating a rough sea state around our Barrier Reef.

I am not exactly sure what is happening, The high level clouds going from the SW over southern Mexico are suddenly turning down and coming over Belize from the north and it appears bringing the Sahara dust back down from the north with it. The Caribbean winds are from the east as usual, but appear to be full of the dust, now effecting most of Belize, resulting in a hazy start to the morning, the haze being a mixture of thin cloud and dust. I had spotted this dust coming our way several days ago, before the media picked up on it, but at that time, it looked as if most would be going north of us, but now the high level winds are bringing it down over Belize more.

Looks as if today will be Hazier with dust than the last couple of days, a fair bit of cloud with it, probably little or no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last night min. 27C 81F Yesterday max. 31C 89F Yesterday Rain 6 mm ( 0.24")

I have found a picture that shows more clearly what is happening with the Saharan dust, as I said several days ago, there is a second wave of dust coming later. It looks as if the high or mid level cloud, is now bringing it down over Belize more than it has over the last two days.

By the way, a lot of land mass in the West Indies, Bermuda and possibly parts of Belize, have been built up over thousands of years, by this red Sahara dust.
