The Caribbean Sea
GOES-16 water vapor channels show dry air in the low to mid levels
over the central and western Caribbean. This is due to mid-level
ridging, which is causing subsidence. A sharp upper trough
persists from over the central Atlantic to the Mona Passage to
northeast Nicaragua. This is also acting to suppress showers along
and NW of the upper trough axis. However, some showers are
occurring SE of the upper-trough axis, between the ABC Islands and
the Leeward Islands. Patchy areas of smoke are possible in the
northwest Caribbean including the Gulf of Honduras due to ongoing
agricultural fires over portions of Central America. This smoke
and associated haze may reduce visibilities.
The pressure gradient between high pressure over the western
Atlantic and lower pressure inland over Mexico is tight enough to
support fresh E winds off the coast of Honduras. However, the
high pressure is weak enough that gentle to moderate trade winds
are noted elsewhere across the basin. Seas are 4-6 ft in the Gulf
of Honduras and 2-4 ft elsewhere.
For the forecast, fresh E to SE winds will prevail in the Gulf of
Honduras through Sun. Then, winds will increase to fresh to
strong Sun night through Wed night as the pressure gradient
tightens between the Atlantic ridge and lower pressures over the
Gulf of Mexico. Gentle to moderate winds will continue elsewhere
across the basin through Sun, becoming moderate to fresh across
most of the Caribbean early next week.
We are getting increased amount of clouds, still presently sharp in shape, but starting to get blurred in the distance, yesterday they became blurred or just hazy everywhere. Perhaps due to "Particulates" in the atmosphere, possibly due to small fibres from all those Fires.
Present Condition: Clear skies throughout the country, sunny and windy in San Pedro. Seasonably warm and dry conditions prevail. Heat alert:- residents, especially those inland, are advised to stay hydrated and avoid outdoor activity as much as possible.
24hr Forecast: Mostly sunny today and partly cloudy tonight with little or rainfall expected, except for the chance of an isolated afternoon thunderstorm over the mountains.
Outlook: Similar conditions are expected for Sunday afternoon through midday Monday.
