The Caribbean Sea
There is a gale warning in effect for the south-central basin. A stationary front extends across the northwest Caribbean from
eastern Cuba to central Honduras. A recent scatterometer shows
moderate to fresh N to NE winds are evident north of the front
over the northwest Caribbean. Seas in this plume are likely 4 to
6 ft. Grand Cayman radar is showing only a few showers along the
front moving to the southwest. High pressure north of the area
building in the wake of the front will support moderate to fresh
trade winds with 5 to 7 ft over the remainder of the basin, but
with strong trade winds and seas to 8 ft off Colombia. Other than
a few showers moving into the Windward Islands, little shower
activity is noted.
For the forecast, the stationary front reaching from eastern Cuba
to central Honduras will dissipate through Mon. The high pressure
building in the wake of the front north of the region will bring
increasing winds and building seas over the south- central
Caribbean, with winds pulsing to gale force off the coast of
Colombia mainly at night through mid week.
The easterly Caribbean is now pushing back hard, and is moving the cool air away. The partial clear skies last night are now getting cloudy from the Caribbean winds. Some of the clouds off shore are now very heavy. There is a lot of high level clouds around and there is some clashing with the Caribbean winds, so quite probably some rain out at sea.
Cloud is building across Belize, getting thicker and probably thick over most of the country for the rest of the day, could be some rain later, more likely in coastal areas.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 20°C 69°F Yesterday 25°C 77°F Yesterday Rain 0.8 mm ( 0")
There are two levels of cloud, the lower Caribbean cloud, which at present, is fairly calm, and the high level which is not too thick, and presently, only clashing out at sea, possibly with some rain out there.
Present Condition: Mostly cloudy as the cold front moves through. A cool airmass dominates our weather.
24hr Forecast: Some cloudy spells with little or no rainfall is expected this afternoon; and then possible isolated showers or periods of light rain mainly over the southern districts tonight into tomorrow morning.
Outlook: Cloudy spells with a few showers and periods of rain will affect mainly coastal and southern areas Monday afternoon, increasing overnight and spreading to most places on Tuesday.
