The Caribbean Sea
A weakening stationary front extends from the Windward Passage,
south of Cuba to the Cayman Islands. Widely scattered moderate
convection associated with the front is in the NW part of the
Caribbean Sea from 16N northward and Haiti westward. The monsoon
trough is along 10N from 73W in N Colombia to beyond Costa Rica.
Isolated showers are associated with the monsoon trough.
The stationary front is expected to dissipate later today. Fresh
easterly winds and seas to 7-8 ft will prevail north of the
front this morning. Fresh trade winds are expected across the
central Caribbean through Sat. Another cold front will reach the
Yucatan Channel on Monday, and move across the NW Caribbean on
The SW high level winds have a lot of heavy cloud causing many areas of rain, presently mainly out at sea, but some areas in Belize. The easterly Caribbean winds have been brought to an almost stop, they could later, bring more rain inland later today. There is a significant SW surface wind this morning.
Looks as if today will be mainly cloudy, much heavy cloud around, so some rain in places, some could be heavy, but mainly light rain I expect.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 23°C 74°F Yesterday 29°C 84°F Yesterday Rain 6.6 mm ( 0.3")
Some hazy sun trying to shine through some thinner area of cloud. The weather condition over the last couple of weeks, is resulting in a lot of low and high level air clashing, causing significant rains, just offshore of Belize. But that is so close, that sometimes it will be just on shore and certainly be effecting the islands from time to time. I am not seeing and end to it yet for some days.
Present Condition: Cloudy skies. Rain continues in some areas. Conditions continue relatively moist over the area.
A flood warning remains in effect for communities downstream on the Belize River.
24hr Forecast: Generally cloudy skies with a few showers and periods of rain across the country.
Outlook: Similar conditions will continue on Saturday afternoon, then weather conditions will improve slightly on Saturday night and Sunday morning.
