The Caribbean Sea

A cold front is entering the northwest Caribbean Sea, extending from western Cuba near 23N82W to just south of the Yucatan Peninsula to across the northern Yucatan Peninsula. An earlier ASCAT scatterometer pass showed fresh to strong northerly winds already arriving behind the front, with seas up to 8 ft near the Yucatan Channel.

A moderate pressure gradient across the south-central Caribbean between high pressure east of Bermuda and a 1006 mb low over northern Colombia is producing strong to near-gale force NE to E trades in the south-central Caribbean. Seas are up to 9-10 ft in the area of the strongest winds. Moderate to fresh trades are noted elsewhere in the Caribbean sea, except light and variable winds are mainly north of 18N between Haiti and 79W. Seas are 5-7 ft in the north-central and eastern Caribbean with mainly 3-5 ft seas in the northwest Caribbean ahead of the front. No significant deep convection is occurring over the Caribbean waters, but patches of scattered showers are possible in the southwest and south-central Caribbean, and deep convection is noted over inland portions of northern Colombia.

The cold front will move across the northwest Caribbean today, then stall and dissipate across the northwest Caribbean through Sat. Fresh to strong winds will follow the front, persisting in the Lee of Cuba and across the approach to the Windward Passage through the weekend. High pressure in the Atlantic will support fresh to strong trade winds in the south-central Caribbean through early next week, with the highest winds near the Colombia coast. Moderate to fresh trade winds will prevail elsewhere across the east and central Caribbean.

The cool air from the north has taken over the area strongly. But there is a trace of easterly Caribbean winds, presumably above it, which are probably the main cause of all that cloud over northern Yucatan and Belize and Guatamala. There is just a trace of the fast, high level air over Honduras and Nicaragua.

Looks like today will be a mixture of cloud, heavy cloud and some sunshine, mainly in the north, and could be more rain in some places. With two different air movements, there is the chance of swellups and heavy rain showers.

Cold front approaches Belize

The cold front continues to advance over the Gulf of Mexico and its reaching the Yucatan peninsula, the front favors cloudiness, with weak to moderate rains over the east and south of Mexico for today, April 2. The cold front will continue advancing over the western part of Cuba and the north of the Central American countries with weak to moderate rains, especially rains will occur over the northern part of Guatemala, Belize, and the northwestern part of Honduras. A cooling in temperatures is expected.
