The Caribbean Sea
Scattered showers are off the coast of Cuba, N of 21N between
83W-85W. Moderate to fresh southerly winds are observed in the
Yucatan Passage. Moderate trades prevail across the remainder of
the basin. Seas range between 2 to 5 ft.
Fresh trade winds will pulse to strong at night
across the SW Caribbean through the forecast period. High
pressure north of the area will weaken and shift east ahead of
an approaching cold front. The front will reach the Yucatan
Channel today, extend from eastern Cuba to Honduras Tue, and
stall from Hispaniola to Nicaragua into late week.
It may not look it, but there is a complete change to our weather. The mass of cool air has pushed down again and its front crossed well over all of Belize over night and is now well out at sea. The present blanket of cloud is moving down from the NW and covering all central Belize, most of the north but not crossing the southern mountains, so much of Stann Creak and Toledo has early morning bright sunshine. Heavier mid-level cloud pushing down from the NW possibly bringing thicker clouds over us later today. The surface wind is from the SW.
Looks as if today will be cloudy for much of the day for central and north parts. At present, no indication of rain, but there could be some rain later.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 24°C 75°F Yesterday 28°C 83°F Yesterday Rain 0.8 mm ( 0")
