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.

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 ) Last night min. 25°C 77°F Yesterday max. 34°C 94°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
