The Caribbean Sea
Scatterometer data earlier this morning showed fresh to strong
NE to E winds across the central Caribbean Sea. High pressure
north of the region is enhancing trade winds in this particular
region. Highest winds to 30 kt were observed north of Honduras
in the Gulf of Honduras. Seas are 8-11 ft in the south-central
Caribbean, 7 to 8 ft in the Gulf of Honduras, and 4 to 7 ft
elsewhere across the basin. Satellite imagery indicates isolated
shower activity across the region, embedded in the large scale
trade wind flow.
The pressure gradient between the Bermuda High and low pressure
over northern Colombia will support fresh to strong winds across
the south-central Caribbean the next several day, with highest
winds near the coast of Colombia at night through Tuesday night.
Maximum seas will build to 10-12 ft during each period of near-
gale force winds. Fresh to strong trade winds will expand in
coverage this weekend to include the rest of the east-central
Caribbean. Fresh to strong E to SE winds will continue in the
Gulf of Honduras through early Monday.
On Ambergris Caye this morning we have rough sea conditions around our barrier reef and an advisory of *A Small Craft Warning is in effect for gusty winds and rough seas in northeasterly swells. Mariners should remain in safe harbor.* .
Those high day and night temperatures have now reduced, but still higher than the normal for this time of the year. There is more cloud around, which might help to keep today a little cooler. There is a sort of wall of near stationary air in the Caribbean and land between Honduras and Belize, which forms that curved line of cloud, diverting most of the stronger winds upwards, leaving lighter winds over Belize.
Looks like another hot day, but possibly with a little more cloud and not as hot, but no rain expected.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 23°C 74°F 33°C 91°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
