The Caribbean Sea

Broad mid to upper level south-southwest flow covers the basin which is advecting moisture across the region from the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean. A surface trough extends from the eastern Pacific Ocean to south of the Gulf of Panama to across northern Colombia with clusters of scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms over central and northern Colombia. This convection has frequent lightning with heavy rainfall also possible.

High pressure is located north of the basin. A fairly weak pressure pattern prevails across the region with winds locally to fresh in the lee of central and eastern Cuba, across the Windward Passage, south of Hispaniola, and north of northern Colombia. Mainly gentle to moderate trades prevail elsewhere early this morning. Seas are in the 2-4 ft range in the northwest and eastern Caribbean, and 3-5 ft in the central Caribbean, locally to 6 ft.

High pressure north of the basin will continue to support fresh winds and moderate seas in the lee of Cuba, and the Windward Passage through early today. As high pressure shifts east, winds and seas will begin to diminish over the area. By Fri night, fresh to strong E to SE winds and building seas will return across the central and northwest Caribbean from the Gulf of Honduras through the Yucatan Channel with fresh to strong NE to E winds and building seas develop south of Hispaniola.

Beautiful morning!

Still the SW high level clouds are dominating the weather in our area. There is a slow easterly Caribbean wind. The combination is causing fog at present is some areas. Some sunshine through gaps in the clouds, presently up in the north.

Looks as if today will be largely cloudy, both low Caribbean and high clouds, and some sunshine between them sometimes, probably little or no rain today.

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