The Caribbean Sea

An Atlantic Ocean cold front passes through the Lesser Antilles 16N62W and extends eastward into the NE Caribbean Sea to south of the Mona Passage near 17N69W. Scattered showers are occurring along the frontal boundary and within 45 nm south of the front.

Earlier scatterometer data indicated a surface trough in the southwestern part of the Caribbean Sea. The trough extends from the southeast coast of Nicaragua to the northern coast of Panama. This trough is enhancing shower activity in southern Central America, including Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama, during the past 12 to 24 hours.

The cold front across the NE Caribbean will drift southward and weaken today. Large northerly swell will subside across Tropical N Atlantic waters and Caribbean Passages through Friday. Fresh to strong trade winds will prevail in the central Caribbean through Fri morning, with near gale-force winds expected near the coast of Colombia tonight. A cold front in the Gulf of Mexico will reach the Yucatan Channel Friday night, then meander across the NW Caribbean through Sunday.

All sorts of changes happening right now. The Caribbean winds are slow. There is cool air coming down from the NW. Significant ITCZ swellup activity over Nicaragua this morning, and traces of warm air coming up from the south.

Looks as if today will continue mainly sunny for most of the day, some clouds developing, there could be some rain late this afternoon or night.

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