The Caribbean Sea

A strong north-south pressure gradient between high pressure east of the Bahamas and a 1008 mb low over Colombia is forcing three separate areas of strong winds: just north of Colombia, the Gulf of Honduras, and the Windward Passage. Scatterometer winds this evening did not cover the area just north of Colombia that should have the strongest winds, but coverage farther west suggests that gale-force winds were not occurring. Peak seas are likely 8-11 ft north of Colombia and 5-7 ft in the Gulf of Honduras and Windward Passage. Widely scattered showers are present south of 16N across the southern Caribbean.

Near gale-force winds are expected near the coast of Colombia each night through early Fri. Fresh to strong winds are possible in the Windward Passage tonight. SE winds will increase across the NW Caribbean through tonight, ahead of a cold front moving into the Gulf of Mexico. The front will stall and weaken near the Yucatan Channel Fri night and Sat. Large northerly swell will affect the Tropical North Atlantic waters through Thu.

Similar to yesterday, SE Caribbean wind, little or no cloud in our area, some clouds over Stann Creak area and the mountains. Again the NOAA site playing up.

Looks like generally sunny weather, some clouds building during the morning and clearing in the afternoon, no rain expected.

Last Night 22°C 72°F Yesterday 32°C 89°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")

On Ambergris Caye this morning it's windy and the sea around our barrier reef is rough. We have wind gusting at 30 mph.
