The Caribbean Sea
A mid to upper level trough extends from the central Atlantic
southwest to the east Caribbean and is producing stable
atmospheric conditions across the region. The interactions between
the tropical wave near 84W and the ridge to the north of the
Caribbean are modulating the trade wind flow over the basin. Fresh
NE winds are noted ahead of the tropical wave from the Gulf of
Honduras across the Yucatan Channel. Moderate to fresh locally
strong trades are noted in the central Caribbean north of
Colombia. Seas are 4 to 6 ft over most of the basin, with up to 8
ft in south central Caribbean. Trade wind convergence into the
active monsoon trough is supporting a line of showers and a few
thunderstorms from Colombia to central Nicaragua.
The fresh trade winds will prevail over the central Caribbean
through Sun, with locally strong winds expected to pulse near the
coast of Colombia at night. Fresh to strong winds are also
expected in the Gulf of Honduras through Sun night in the wake of
a tropical wave moving through that area today. A second tropical
wave will enter the eastern Caribbean late today and move west of
the basin by late Mon or Tue. A third tropical wave will move into
the eastern Caribbean Mon and the central Caribbean Tue.
We are monitoring two tropical waves one presently located over 2,000 miles E of the Lesser Antilles and the other about 500 miles east of Barbados and the Windward Islands.
We focus on a tropical wave which is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms just east of the islands. Some gradual development of this system is possible during the next several days while it moves westward at about 15 mph toward the Lesser Antilles but it is NOT expected to become a tropical cyclone before.
Regardless of development, this system will likely produce increased cloudiness, locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds across parts of Trinidad, Tobago, Barbados the Windward and Leeward Islands beginning later today over some parts but in higher concentrations tomorrow

The easterly Caribbean winds are the main ones this morning, although from the ESE perhaps helped by a very hot day yesterday. There is a fight between two different high level winds in the Gulf, just might be kick back from that hurricane, or the first indication of a cold front from the north, but will not effect us.
Looks like today may well be another hot day, some cloud building, but no indication of much rain, perhaps a little down south, could be a few other odd spots during the day elsewhere.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25°C 77°F Yesterday max. 36°C 97°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
Present Condition: Clear skies. Warm and fair conditions will prevail over the area for the next few days. 24hr Forecast: Sunny skies during the daytime and partly cloudy to clear skies tonight. Showers or thunderstorms will be isolated.
