Belize Weather Forecast: August 18, 2020


General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Mostly cloudy this morning in the south, less so in the north. Relatively moist and unstable conditions prevails with improvements expected later today and the few days.
Advisories: *Residents, especially those inland, are advised to stay hydrated and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible.*
24-hour forecast: Cloudy this morning with a few showers and isolated thunderstorms mainly over the southern districts and along some coastal areas. Sunny with cloudy spells this afternoon and partly cloudy tonight with showers and thunderstorms becoming isolated.
Winds: E-NE, 5-10 kts
Sea State: Slight
Waves: 1-3 ft.
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Outlook: Wednesday and Wednesday night is for generally fair and warm weather with only isolated showers or thunderstorms.
Sargassum Forecast from August 11, 2020 to August 19, 2020: Observations show several sargassum mats along and offshore coastal areas of the country. These mats will continue drifting in during the next few days with moderate to major impacts on beaches across the country. San Pedro has a high probability and a major expected impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook: A tropical wave over the eastern Caribbean Sea is producing disorganized thunderstorms and gusty winds. However, this system has a medium chance of becoming a tropical depression later this week when it moves over the Western Caribbean Sea. Although this system is over 1400 miles from our shores and poses no immediate threat to the country, the National Meteorological Service of Belize will continue to monitor its progress very closely.

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is a strong tropical wave in the eastern Caribbean. Elsewhere across the basin, scattered moderate convection exists in the NW Carribbean. In the SW Caribbean, the east Pacific monsoon trough is producing scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms, mainly S of 13N from the Gulf of Venezuela westward. Generally moderate trades exist over the central and western Carribbean this morning.

The strong tropical wave over the eastern Caribbean has a low chance of tropical formation in the eastern or central Caribbean through midweek, but a medium chance late week in the western Caribbean. Looking ahead, low pressure is likely to approach Atlantic waters off the Leeward Islands Fri or Sat.

A tropical wave near the Windward Islands continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. This disturbance is moving westward at about 20 mph and is expected to continue moving quickly westward during the next couple of days. Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds in some areas should continue and is likely to spread over and or around more islands later tonight into tomorrow and this should continue through tomorrow. Gusty winds are also possible over some #Leewardislands southward to just north of St Vincent while the low-pressure area moves across St. Vincent and The Grenadines and over the Caribbean Sea tonight into tomorrow.

Although this system is over 1800 miles from our shores and poses no immediate threat to the country, the National Meteorological Service of Belize will continue to monitor its progress very closely.

On Ambergris caye this morning we have thunder and rain. A wind from the NW at 5 mph is giving a flat sea state around our barrier reef. Today's expected high temperature is in the upper 80's.

There are a number of large swellups just off the coast, clearly causing a fair bit of rain, mainly out at sea, but some inland in the south coastal regions. There is no Caribbean wind at present, just a little mid-level from the SE, the high-level is from the NW, but there is a surface "Tiger" wind inland, from the SW.

Looks as if another mixed day, presently sunshine in central and some north areas, some cloud will be building later, presently looks as if the rain will hold off or even move away from the coast line this morning, could be some rain this afternoon.

Wind directions changed since this morning, but still quite a few swellups, some very sudden, without warning.
