Belize Weather Forecast: August 19, 2020

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Mostly cloudy this morning. Relatively moist and unstable conditions prevail over the area.
Advisories: *Residents, especially those inland, are advised to stay hydrated and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible.*
24-hour forecast: Some cloudy spells today and partly cloudy tonight with generally isolated showers and thunderstorms.
Winds: Light and Variable
Sea State: Slight
Waves: 1-3 ft.
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 85
Outlook: Mainly fair conditions with isolated showers or thunderstorms Thursday and Thursday night.
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 located over the eastern Caribbean Sea is producing a large area of disorganized thunderstorms and gusty winds. This system has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression later this week, when it moves over the northwestern Caribbean Sea, and will continue to be monitored closely by the National Meteorological Service of Belize. A broad area of low pressure well east of the Lesser Antilles is moving generally west-northwestward, and has a high chance of developing into a tropical depression during the next couple of days.

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is low pressure in the central Caribbean. Aside from the low, scattered moderate to isolated strong convection is ongoing in the SW Caribbean S of 13N and W of 75W. Moderate to fresh trades are near the tropical wave in the east- central Caribbean, with light to gentle trades elsewhere. Seas generally range from 2 to 6 ft.

For the forecast, the fast speed of the central Caribbean system should inhibit significant development of this system over the next day or so. However, the wave and associated low pressure should slow down and turn WNW in the western Caribbean at the end of the week, and a tropical depression is likely to form by the weekend in the NW Caribbean. There is a medium chance of tropical formation through Thu night, then a high chance by the end of the weekend. Looking ahead, low pressure associated with another tropical wave is expected to move across the Tropical N Atlc waters late Thu and approach the Atlantic waters off the Leeward Islands late Fri. This system also has the potential for tropical development.

Invest 97L

NEMO Belize Rural South and the EOC continue to closely monitor the wave named 97L that the National Hurricane Center shows headed our way.

Indications are that this system may develop into a depression or a tropical storm. At this time, we do not anticipate any need for evacuation from the island for safety.
We remind you to stay calm and remain vigilant.

You can expect additional updates here, but for now no further action is warranted.

On approach of any significant storm you will be advised and we will encourage voluntary evacuation to the Belmopan shelter or to your mainland family.

For those that remain behind and must go into shelter here, NEMO will open additional classrooms as well as using our backup hotel shelters so we are able to separate people by household to maintain social distancing.

Masks will be required for anyone being evacuated or seeking shelter here or on the mainland for any storm for the remainder of the season.

Hardware stores are available for delivery in the event of an approaching storm.

On Ambergris Caye this morning ominous black clouds and rumbling thunder have wildlife looking for shelter. The wind is from the North at 4 mph.

Virtually now air movement over Belize at present, a little surface "Tiger" wind from the SW. the High-level is from the west and causing some clashing and rain over San Pedro at present, sending out some cloud over Corozal, but otherwise Belize is nearly cloud free. Clouds will start to develop later this morning, but I am not expecting much rain this morning. That Pacific hurricane is sending some high cloud down over the Gulf, but it is evaporating away, before it gets to the Yucatan.

That other area of interest INVEST 97L is now in the Caribbean, but not showing signs of developing, but we do need to keep watching.

Looks as if today will mainly sunny, with significant clouds building later, a low chance of any rain, except in Ambergris Caye.

After thunder and some showers this morning, its brightening! Steamy and hot. Little breeze...

Not much happening out there, clouds developing due the sun heating the ground and air pockets rising up until they start to condense at the dew line, rising air gets cooler due to adiabatic cooling. Some clouds might thicken up and cause some rain, possibly over the mountains this afternoon. Just feels b... hot mainly due to no cooling wind.
