The Caribbean Sea
High pressure continues to build south into the basin, producing
strong east winds and isolated fast moving showers embedded in
the flow across much of the basin. Near gale conditions are
occurring within 120 nm of the coast of Colombia.
The monsoon trough extends from northern Colombia near 11N73W,
across Panama, beyond NW Costa Rica, and into the eastern
Pacific Ocean. Precipitation previously associated with this
trough has diminished early this morning.
Strong east winds will prevail across the eastern,
central and southwest Caribbean as strong high pressure north of
the area remains in place through the weekend. A pulse of easterly
gales is expected tonight offshore Colombia. Winds will decrease
to mainly moderate to locally fresh early on Mon, except strong
winds will pulse nightly off the N coast of Colombia trough Wed
night. Otherwise, fresh to strong SE winds in the NW Caribbean
will diminish this morning.
On Ambergris Caye this morning the sea around our barrier reef is rough from an Easterly wind blowing at 23 mph. The day is sunny and our expected high temperature is 86 f. *Small craft caution. Operators of small crafts are advised to exercise caution for occasionally rough seas.*
Despite being overcast in central Belize this morning, there is a fair amount of sunshine in other parts. The cool air from the north has not got any nearer, the Caribbean winds do have more cloud in them and from the east, not much trace of high level cloud at present, but looks a bit changeable.
Looks as if today will be a mixture of sun and cloud, a small chance of the odd rain shower.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 23°C 74°F Yesterday 30°C 86°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
