The Caribbean Sea

An upper level ridge extends from Venezuela into the eastern Pacific Ocean beyond 07N92W. Upper level anticyclonic wind flow and dry air in subsidence covers the Caribbean Sea.

A strong cold front extends across the Yucatan Channel from the western tip of Cuba to the Yucatan peninsula near 19N88W. Broken to overcast multi-layered clouds, and isolated embedded showers, are within 90 nm either side of the cold front.

The monsoon trough extends from northern Colombia near 11N73W, across Panama, into the eastern Pacific Ocean, producing isolated shower activity along the boundary.

Isolated showers are possible elsewhere, in scattered to broken low-level clouds moving through the area, from 70W eastward, and from 13N northward from 70W westward, most notably off the coasts of NE Honduras and E Nicaragua.

The cold front will extend from central Cuba to Honduras today, from eastern Cuba to Nicaragua on Saturday, then stall and weaken on Sunday. Fresh to strong northerly winds and building seas are expected across the western Caribbean today.

That white stuff is certainly coming down strongly from the north, been falling as light rain since 2am and still continuing as the Cold air pushes southwards, way beyond Belize now. Even the high level clouds are now being deflected southwards. causing a thick blanket of cloud over Belize. The coldest night of the winter, 18°C 65°F

Looks as if we will be under this heavy cloud and light rain much of this special day, perhaps some opens skies moving down from the north this afternoon.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 18°C 65°F Yesterday 29°C 84°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0.1") This Morning Rain 6.5mm ( 0.3" )

Live Beach Cam at Blue Water Grill

Complicated weather right now, dominated by the cold air from the north, which somehow is resulting the surface wind over Belmopan to be from the SW. The Caribbean winds are being diverted towards the south, even high level over the Caribbean are being diverted, yet there is something sneaking up over the west Yucatan from the south. A total of 9.9mm 0.4" or rain today.

So looks as if still cloudy tomorrow, and cold.
