The Caribbean Sea
There is a Gale
Warning in the south central Caribbean northwest of the coast of
Colombia. Elsewhere across the Caribbean, fresh to strong trades are noted
in the south central Caribbean, with mainly moderate to fresh
trades elsewhere. Seas are mainly 3-6 ft across the basin outside
of the stronger winds near the coast of Colombia. Mainly fair
conditions are noted on satellite imagery with isolated trade wind
High pressure north of the area will continue to support fresh to
strong winds over the south central Caribbean. Mainly moderate to
fresh trades will prevail elsewhere, pulsing to fresh to strong
near the Gulf of Honduras early next week. Northerly swell will
propagate into the Tropical N Atlantic waters early next week.
Generally just the easterly Caribbean winds this morning, with some cloud, more so towards the south, but resulting in a lot of cloud cover, like raised fog, over most of central and south Belize this morning, dropping just a little bit of drizzle.
Looks as if this morning will remain cloudy for most, sun in the north, but get brighter later, only a small chance of any significant rain.
