The Caribbean Sea
Broad upper level anticyclonic wind flow is pushing high level
moisture across the Caribbean Sea. Water vapor satellite imagery
show a ridge from northern Venezuela and northern Colombia to
Panama and Costa Rica.
A cold front passes through Florida near Fort Myers, into the
southeast Gulf of Mexico, across the Yucatan Channel to the
Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Isolated moderate showers are along
the frontal boundary.
The monsoon trough extends from northern Colombia near 11N73W,
across southern sections of Panama, and into the eastern Pacific
Ocean. Isolated showers are near the trough axis.
Broken to overcast clouds and scattered showers span the rest of
the Caribbean Sea, moving with the low level wind flow.
The cold front across the Yucatan Channel will stall and weaken
across the NW Caribbean through Saturday. Fresh trade winds will
prevail across the basin Saturday through Tuesday. Nightly
pulses of strong winds are expected off the Colombia coast, with
near gale-force winds possible Monday night.
Well that cold front forecasted for yesterday has finally crossed over Belize, without all those thunderstorms and rain. There is, however a fair amount of cloud, blanketing much of Belize at present, and probably much of the morning, although there are some areas of bright sunshine, but probably a low chance of rain anywhere, although there is a line off shore, where the cold is pushing against the Caribbean air, where there could be some rain.
Looks as if today will be a mixture of thick, and thin cloud and areas of sunshine, but probably little or no rain.
