The Caribbean Sea
A Gale Warning is in effect for the western Gulf of Mexico. Strong high pressure and associated dry and stable conditions
are present over the eastern and central sections of the Gulf.
Meanwhile, areas of rain along with scattered showers and
isolated thunderstorms are moving east-northeast over the NW Gulf
and over the northern section of the far western Gulf as upper-
level divergence east of a shortwave trough begins to infiltrate
those areas of the Gulf. East to southeast winds are increasing
over the far western part of the NW Gulf, and will continue to do
so throughout the day, with wave heights building to possibly 10
ft. Fresh east to southeast winds are over the remainder of
the western Gulf, while gentle to moderate winds are elsewhere.
The strong high pressure over the area will shift eastward and
weaken today in response to the next cold front that will approach
the NW Gulf. This front along with developing low pressure will
move to along the Texas coast this afternoon. The front will
reach from southwestern Louisiana to low pressure near 28N95W 1014
mb tonight. The low will quickly track northeastward and reach to
just south of the western Florida panhandle on Mon afternoon and
to near Apalachicola, Florida by late Mon night, with the trailing
cold front to 25N87W and to inland the Yucatan Peninsula. The low
will move over northeastern Florida by Tue afternoon, with the
cold front extending southwestward to the northeast Yucatan
Peninsula before exiting the Gulf Tue night. Strong winds reaching
frequent gusts to gale force are expected over some parts of the
NW Gulf Sun night. Gale force winds are possible south of 24N and
west of 95W to along the coast of Mexico Mon through Mon night.
Expect for areas of rain along with scattered showers and
thunderstorms over the NW Gulf through tonight.
The easterly Caribbean winds are now firmly moving back in over Belize and the whole Yucatan, but the is still a light surface wind from the SW. There are scattered thin high level clods from the SW but not causing any clashing at present.
Looks as if today will be mainly cloudy, some sun in a few parts, some heavy cloud, but a low chance of any rain.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 21°C 70°F Yesterday 25°C 77°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
Mainly easterly Caribbean clouds, but there is low level, or surface cool air still around, and some mid-level warm air coming up from the south and only a trace of high level cloud.
Present Condition: Cloudy skies. Fair and mild conditions prevail.
24hr Forecast: Mostly cloudy with little or no rainfall this afternoon. Cloudy at times with isolated showers tonight then a few showers and the chance of isolated thunderstorms especially north and along the coast tomorrow morning.
Outlook: A few showers, periods of rain and possible isolated thunderstorms will affect most areas Monday afternoon and Monday night then mostly coastal areas Tuesday morning.
