The Caribbean Sea
Recent scatterometer data depict fresh to strong trade winds over
the south-central Caribbean and in the Gulf of Honduras with seas
to 8 ft. Elsewhere, moderate to fresh trade winds are noted in
the eastern and central Caribbean, with gentle to moderate SE
winds south of Cuba, with 4 to 6 ft seas. Shallow moisture
embedded in the trade wind flow will continue to move across the
basin producing isolated to scattered passing showers. Some of
these patches of moisture are currently affecting Puerto Rico and
the US/UK Virgin Islands as well as Hispaniola.
For the forecast, fresh to strong NE to E winds are expected in
the south-central Caribbean through Mon night, then mainly
moderate to fresh winds will prevail. Fresh to strong winds in the
Gulf of Honduras will diminish this morning, and could return Thu
night as another cold front moves across the Gulf of Mexico.
Fresh to strong winds are also expected in the lee of the Greater
Antilles, including the Windward Passage by midweek as high
pressure builds over the western Atlantic.
The easterly Caribbean winds are being diverted up northwards, again, the mountains of Honduras help that and form a curved line of cloud in the Caribbean. But some Caribbean easterly wind is still able to get through and over northern and central Belize and up into the Yucatan, and yet, there is cool air coming down from the North, significantly over southern Belize. Only a few traces of high level cloud.
There is some cloud around and this might develop more this morning, but no rain expected.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 23°C 74°F 34°C 93°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
Present Condition: Mostly clear skies throughout the country. Clear and windy in San Pedro. Warm and dry conditions prevail. Residents, especially those inland, are advised to stay hydrated and avoid outdoor activity as much as possible.
