The Caribbean Sea
Recent scatterometer data shows fresh trade winds in the east-
central part of the Caribbean, and mostly gentle winds in the
western Caribbean. Seas are 5-6 ft over most of the central and
eastern Caribbean, and 3-4 ft in the western part of the basin.
Isolated to scattered shower activity is noted across the SW
Caribbean, south of 15N and west of 72W. Numerous showers are
occurring over Costa Rica, including western Panama and parts of
Fresh SE winds are expected across the NW Caribbean this weekend,
including the Gulf of Honduras. Fresh E winds and moderate seas
are expected across the central Caribbean through Sun.
Windward Islands Ashfall Advisory: La Soufriere volcano on the
island of Saint Vincent near 13.3N 61.2W is active, and continues
to erupt. Satellite imagery shows the volcanic ash plume spreading
east and northeast of St. Vincent, roughly in an area bounded by
12.5N59W to 13N61.5W to 13.5N61.5W to 15N58W back to 12.5N59W,
which includes Barbados. Violent volcanic eruptions may occur
suddenly without any warning.
The Equatorial Pacific cloud development continues to come directly up over Belize and the whole area from the SW. It is generally thin and patchy, so perhaps not very evident. The Caribbean winds are now coming up from the SE, very little air movement over most of Belize at present, but some Fog or low flying cloud in some western central areas.
Looks as if much of today will be hazy and bright sunshine, some clouds developing but probably no rain.
