General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Partly cloudy, more so in the west and south. Partly cloudy in San Pedro. A relatively moist easterly to northeasterly airflow prevails.
Advisories: *A small craft caution is in effect for locally rough seas, especially in northeasterly swells.*
24-hour forecast: Cloudy at times with a few showers mainly over the south this morning then spreading to central areas this afternoon and tonight.
Winds: E-NE, 10-20 kts
Sea State: Moderate - Rough
Waves: 5-8 ft.
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 82
Outlook: A few showers will linger over central and southern areas on Friday and then decrease and become isolated on Friday night.
Sargassum Forecast from March 9 to March 17: Observations suggest that sargassum concentration over the area remains limited and therefore only minimal impacts from sargassum are expected during the next few days. San Pedro has a low probability and a minimal impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook: There are no organized tropical features across the Atlantic basin at this time. Updates will resume at the beginning of the 2021 hurricane season (June 1). Click for more...

The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front passes through 22N65W in the Atlantic Ocean, to NW Hispaniola then becomes diffuse to near Jamaica. Strong NE winds induced by the pressure gradient between the high pressure across the W Atlantic and the cold frontal remnants is producing strong NE winds across much of the NW Caribbean east of 86W and through the Windward Passage. Seas as high as 9-10 ft are seen in the Windward Passage and in the lee of Cuba. Broken to overcast multilayered clouds, and isolated to widely scattered moderate rainshowers, are within 300 nm to the north and NW of the stationary front. Expect the possibility of patches of moisture, with embedded showers, across eastern Cuba where locally heavy rain and gusty winds may occur.

Broken to overcast low level clouds, and isolated moderate rainshowers, span the rest of the Caribbean Sea. The clouds and isolated moderate precipitation are moving with the low level wind flow.

A surface trough is along 11N74W in northern Colombia, to 45 nm to the south of the Colombia/Panama border, into the eastern Pacific Ocean.

Strong high pressure over the western Atlantic will support fresh to strong winds across the northwest and south- central Caribbean through Fri morning, pulsing to gale-force near the coast of Colombia through around sunrise this morning. A surface trough will develop across the Leeward Islands Thu and move west and linger over the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico through Sat. Seas over the tropical Atlantic waters east of the Leeward and Windward Islands will remain 8 ft or greater through Fri night in mixed NW swell and E wind waves.

The easterly Caribbean winds have won, but with some cloud areas over parts of Belize, and the possibility of a heavy area of cloud and rain out in the Caribbean coming in our way this afternoon. There is some high level cloud from the west.

Looks as if this morning will be a mixture of cloud and sun after the fog has cleared, but there could be some heavy cloud and possibly rain this afternoon.

The incoming cloud is still coming closer, but its front is breaking up, still over the sea. But some cloud and possibly some rain is developing in north central areas right now.
