The Caribbean Sea

Latest ASCAT data depicts fresh to strong trade winds over the south-central Caribbean and in the Gulf of Venezuela. Fresh northeast winds are noted south of Hispaniola. These winds are the result of the pressure gradient between high pressure located over the western Atlantic and lower pressure associated with the Colombian/Panamaniam low. These winds will persist during most of the forecast period.

Patches of low-level moisture, embedded in the trade wind flow, are noted moving westward across the basin mainly north of about 14N. Scattered passing showers are possible with some of these clouds.

As for the forecast: The cold front currently moving across the southern Gulf of Mexico is forecast to reach the Yucatan Channel and western Cuba this morning. It is forecast to extend from central Cuba to northern Belize by tonight, then gradually weaken from eastern Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras on Tue. Another and stronger cold front is expected to reach the Yucatan Channel and western Cuba by Thu night. Fresh to strong northerly winds will follow this front.

December 21 - December Solstice

The December solstice occurred at 4:02 am local time. The South Pole of the earth will be tilted toward the Sun, which will have reached its southernmost position in the sky and will be directly over the Tropic of Capricorn at 23.44 degrees south latitude. This is the first day of winter (winter solstice) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of summer (summer solstice) in the Southern Hemisphere.

There is another cool air bubble coming down over the Yucatan, causing the Caribbean winds to turn down southwards.

But there are three levels of cloud movement, some Caribbean air mass is still moving towards the west over Guatamala and there is even some moving up from the south in Mexico. But all covered by the high level from the SW, which has been causing a lot of clashing yesterday and now heavy action down south, mainly over the sea, where there must be a lot of rain.

Looks as if most of Belize has sunshine at present, but with significant clouds around and could be isolated rain later, some could be heavy.
