The Caribbean Sea

Caribbean Gale Warning: The pressure gradient between 1020 mb high pressure to the north of the area and 1008 mb low pressure over Colombia is leading to strong trade winds over the south- central Caribbean. Gale conditions are expected tonight offshore Colombia with seas to 13 ft within the gale area.

Mid-level ridging dominates the western Caribbean, leading to subsidence and dry conditions. An upper-level trough extends from the central Atlantic to the NE Caribbean Sea. This is enhancing scattered clouds and isolated showers across the eastern Caribbean.

Minimal gale-force winds are expected near the coast of Colombia tonight. Fresh to strong winds will continue to blow elsewhere in the south-central Caribbean through the weekend. In the Gulf of Honduras, fresh to strong trades will diminish early this evening. Winds of the same speed are forecast to pulse over Hipaniola adjacent waters tonight and Wed night. North swell will continue to support large seas over the tropical Atlantic waters east of the Windward Islands today. A second swell event will reach the tropical waters E of the Lesser Antilles Thu night and continue through the weekend.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the wind is still howling from the East at 20 mph and the sea around our barrier reef is rough.

The easterly Caribbean winds predominate the area again. Manly clear skies over Belize with some cloud building. again a large Caribbean cloud in the sea off Honduras that could bring some rain, if it does not evaporate away, it is being made more active by some mid-level winds from the south.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, with some isolated clouds, first building, then evaporating away later.

A pile of cuttings? Nope. New thatch for the palapa at the camp. 2000 branches from the mainland - all cut within a few days of the new moon. Otherwise it doesn’t last. Cost of cutting and shipping is $1.25bzd each. Photos by San Pedro Scoop

You cut thatch at full moon cause the tree has a lot of moisture in it. You want thatch to be green for as long as possible when you are working with it. However, if you are cutting lumber you want to cut during the waning crescent to new moon cause the lumber has less sap and moisture and will be harder and last longer.
