Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

An upper level cyclonic circulation center is to the south of Jamaica and is enhancing scattered moderate to strong convection along the monsoon trough across southwest portions from 08.5N to 12N between 75W and 83W. Stable sinking air dominates the middle and upper levels of the eastern Caribbean due to the presence of an upper level low east of the Leeward Islands.

The western periphery of a central Atlantic ridge extends W-SW to near 60W this morning. The associated pressure gradient between this high and low pressure across Colombia and the monsoon trough is supporting fresh to strong tradewinds across the central Caribbean between 70W and 77W, where seas are running 6-8 ft. Elsewhere light to moderate trade prevail across western portions while moderate trades are seen across eastern portions and the Tropical Atlantic waters east of the Lesser Antilles.

The pressure gradient between the Bermuda High across the W Atlantic and the eastward extension of the NE Pacific monsoon trough to Colombia will support fresh to strong trades across the central basin through Wed, then will expand to the SW Caribbean Wed night and continuing through the weekend. Moderate to fresh winds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras during this period as well as the eastern Caribbean. Strong tradewinds are expected across the central Caribbean from Colombia to Hispaniola this weekend with the passage of a tropical wave.

The easterly Caribbean winds are returning. There are high level clouds coming down from the NNE, causing some clashing. Presently a large area over much of coastal north belize, causing significant rain in the Belize district, with some rain in other areas around there. There could be rain showers this morning and afternoon in any place.

West and south Belize sunny conditions, north and east cloudy with rain areas, some heavy rain, rain in other areas this afternoon.

As the cloud moves further down, so it gets thinner and less rain.
