Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A recent scatterometer pass indicated fresh to strong east winds over the Gulf of Honduras this morning, as high pressure builds over the northeastern Caribbean in the wake of a tropical wave now moving through northern Central America. These winds will diminish through the morning as the tropical wave continues westward. Similarly, the high pressure is supporting fresh trade winds off the coast of Colombia. Moderate to fresh NE winds are noted over the Leeward Islands and into the northeast Caribbean, ahead of a tropical wave near Barbados approaching the basin from the east. Seas are 5 to 7 ft in the areas of fresh to strong winds, and 4 to 6 ft elsewhere except 2 to 4 ft in the northeast Caribbean. Divergence aloft associated with a sharp upper trough reaching from over the Windward Passage to northeast Nicaragua is supporting a cluster of moderate to strong showers and thunderstorms off eastern Panama. Scattered moderate convection is noted ahead of the wave axis in the eastern Caribbean, from 12N- 16N between 61W-63W.

The tropical wave near Barbados will move into the eastern Caribbean today, then move across the entire basin through mid week. A trough will move through the Leeward Islands and northeast Caribbean Mon and Tue. Another tropical wave will pass west of 55W by late Wed, and approach the eastern Caribbean by late Thu.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave are affecting portions of the Lesser Antilles. Although the disturbance is not well organized at this time, some gradual development of this system is possible during the next several days while it moves westward at 15 to 20 mph through the Lesser Antilles and across the Caribbean Sea. Regardless of development, this system will likely produce gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall across portions of the Windward and Leeward Islands today.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

Another tropical wave is located over the eastern Atlantic Ocean, several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. This system is producing very limited shower activity, but some development will be possible later this week over the eastern or central tropical Atlantic while it moves slowly westward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

An area of low pressure is expected to form off of the southeastern coast of the United States in a day or two. Subsequent development of this system is possible and a tropical depression could form by the middle of the week while the system moves northeastward or east-northeastward, initially parallel to the southeastern coast of the U.S. and then away from land.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

On Ambergris Caye this morning it seems like we have a sunny, hot and windy day ahead. The sea state around our barrier reef is rough from an Easterly wind blowing at 16 mph.

The weather around us is relatively settled at present. The Caribbean winds from the ESE, cloud just starting to build this morning. There is, however, an area of cloud over the west Indies that needs to be watched INVEST 99 has the possibility of developing as it crosses the Caribbean. Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

Looks like today will be another hot day with relatively little cooling winds, could be the odd swellup this afternoon.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )

Another long hot day with little cloud around. There are a few traces of NE high level, which could clash later today.

But that cloud in the eastern Caribbean is starting to rotate due to the NE Caribbean winds.
