Marine Conditions:

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.

On Ambergris Caye this morning it's sunny and the sea around our barrier reef is calmed from an 11 mph North breeze. Today's expected high temperature is 80 f.

Beautiful photo Elbert!

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.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )

Heavy cloud over much of central Belize, which has the potential for rain, but no indication of rain at present.
