Belize Weather Forecast: August 11, 2020

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Mostly cloudy this morning. Generally fair conditions expected over the country today.
Advisories: *A Flood Warning is in effect for residents along rivers and streams in the south and west of the country, while a Flood Watch remains in effect for the possibility of flooding over low-lying and flood prone areas, elsewhere.*
24-hour forecast: Sunny with some cloudy spells today and partly cloudy tonight. Showers or thunderstorms will be isolated.
Winds: E-NE, 5-15 kts
Sea State: Choppy
Waves: 3-5 ft.
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Outlook: Some cloudy spells with a few showers or isolated thunderstorms maily along the coast on Wednesday and over the southern districts Wednesday night.
Sargassum Forecast from August 05, 2020 to August 12, 2020: Observations offshore Belize suggests that sargassum has decreased during the past few days. However a few mats were still noted well offshore the country and there is a medium chance of sargassum affecting local beaches in the coming week. San Pedro has a medium probability and a moderate expected impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook: A low pressure system located about 900 miles WSW of the Cape Verde Islands has become better organised and is moving generally West-northwestward. The system has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression as early as later today. Click for more...

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Recent GOES-16 satellite imagery and lightning data show scattered moderate convection continues north of the eastern Pacific monsoon trough, over the far SW Caribbean. Strong trade winds persist in the south-central waters near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela. Elsewhere, moderate to fresh trades prevail across much of the basin, except for gentle to moderate winds in the NW Caribbean. Seas are 7-11 ft within the strong trades off Colombia, and 7-9 ft in NE swell offshore of Nicaragua.

Fresh to strong trade winds will prevail across the south-central Caribbean waters through Fri night, with near gale-force winds expected to pulse near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela for the next couple nights. Fresh winds will pulse for the next several nights through the Windward Passage. Winds and seas will increase over the Tropical N Atlantic waters tonight and Wed as a tropical wave crosses the region. A low pressure system, possibly a tropical cyclone, could increase winds and seas over the waters E of the Leeward Islands Fri through Sat as it moves W-NW across the tropical Atlantic waters.

A tropical wave approaching the eastern extent of an active phase of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) later this week will support enhanced moist low-level convergence and the potential for heavy rainfall. This could result in localized flooding over portions of Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua.

Invest 95L in the southern North Atlantic

The axis of an 11-17 mph westward-moving tropicalwave is presently about 350 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

Scattered showers are presently near its axis as well as around the area of the ITCZ which is presently positioned just south of Trinidad over Venezuela and as a result, an increase in cloudiness and or showers and or thunderstorms in some areas are possible over portions of the Lesser Antilles from early today through Wednesday. The system has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression as early as later today.

Meanwhile, shower and thunderstorm activity associated with INVEST 95L presently located about 1,700 miles ESE of the Leeward Islands has increased slightly within the past hours and environmental conditions are expected to be SOMEWHAT conducive for a tropical depression to form during the next couple of days while the disturbance moves generally westward to west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.

Regardless of development before, conditions are expected to become LESS FAVORABLE for further development by the end of the week as the system moves closer to the islands.

Most of that stormy cloud has now moved away. We have the regular easterly Caribbean winds and some thinner high level from the west. There was some clashing and some rain down south earlier, but that drying up now.

Looks as if today will have a fair amount of sunshine and significant cloud, and a small chance of some rain showers.
