There is a Gale Warning for the south-central Caribbean. Pressure gradient from high pressure north of the area combined
with the low over Colombia and local effects are producing three
areas of enhanced winds. Scatterometer observations in the last
couple hours shows near gale easterlies just north of Colombia,
strong E winds in the Gulf of Honduras, and strong NE winds in
the Windward Passage. Peak seas are likely near 8 to 10 ft just
north of Colombia. Scattered showers are occurring in the vicinity
of a surface trough that extends from the Atlantic over the
Gale-force winds will occur within about 90 nm of the coast of
Colombia tonight. From Wed night through Sat night, expect nightly
pulses of fresh to strong winds in this region. Expect pulses of
fresh to strong winds in the Windward Passage and south of
Hispaniola tonight. Fresh to strong trades will dominate most of
the waters S of 18N between 64W and 80W today and will persist

We were lucky to have spotted the Shuga Pride tug boat today, passing along on our New River, Pueblo Nuevo Ferry in Corozal. These tug boats currently haul sugar barges about 122 miles up the New River from the sugar factory in Orange Walk, out to our Corozal Bay and down our Cariibean coast to our Belize City port for further shipping around the world. This is truly a Belizean hallmark.
