The Caribbean Sea

A cold front extends across eastern Cuba SW to the Gulf of Honduras. Widely scattered light showers are seen along and NW of the front across the Gulf of Honduras. Fresh winds behind the front will increase to fresh to strong N to NE winds today as the front continues to move slowly SE into Mon evening. The front is forecast to stall from the Dominican Republic to Honduras Mon night through Tue evening, bringing periods of heavy rain and potential flooding to Hispaniola.

Mainly N to NE moderate to fresh winds are ahead of the front, while moderate to fresh trades are occurring over the central and eastern Caribbean, with locally strong winds near the Colombian coast. These conditions will prevail through Thu, with fresh to locally strong winds expanding in areal coverage Tue and Wed. Strong high pressure building behind the cold front will bring strong to near gale force winds affecting the Windward Passage and Jamaica adjacent waters Mon through Wed.

Of note...A robust wet pulse of the Madden Julian Oscillation is generating numerous showers and thunderstorms over most of Colombia. Week-long periods of intermittent heavy rains are expected over Ecuador, Colombia, and northern Peru. Rainfall totals of 200-300 mm (8-12 in) are expected in coastal Ecuador and SW Colombia, and 100-200 mm (4-8 in) of rainfall are expected over northern Peru and the Eje Cafetero region of Colombia. Please refer to the forecasts of your local meteorological offices for more details.

There is a Gale Warning in effect for the south-central Caribbean Sea near the the coast of Colombia.

The cool air from the north or NNE continues, and continues to cause a lot of cloud over Belize. Only a small trace of high level winds, which is causing some cloud to be very high, so potentially could cause some isolated rain.

Looks as if today will continue heavy cloud over most of the country, a few thinner patches and a possibility of some rain later.

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

I was about to say it was getting brighter, but right now getting very dark, thick clouds, and even a little light rain.
