Belize Weather Forecast: May 15, 2021

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Mostly cloudy skies this morning. Partly cloudy and windy in San Pedro. A relatively moist environment prevails over the area.
Advisories: None.
24-hour forecast: Sunny with a few cloudy spells today and partly cloudy tonight. Showers or thunderstorms will be isolated.
Winds: E-NE, 5-15 kts
Sea State: Light Chop
Waves: 2-4 ft.
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 85
Outlook: For Sunday and Sunday night is for generally fair weather with isolated showers or isolated thunderstorms developing.
Sargassum Forecast from May 11 to May 19: Satellite imagery continue to show an abundance of Sargassum over the northwest Caribbean Sea. It is very likely that some of these mats could make their way to coastal areas, especially over central and northern parts of the country. San Pedro has a high probability and a major impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook: There are no organized tropical features across the Atlantic basin at this time. Updates will resume at the beginning of the 2021 hurricane season (June 1). Click for more...

The Caribbean Sea

The monsoon trough passes through Colombia near 11N74W, through Panama about 80 nm to the north of its border with Colombia, beyond southern Costa Rica, into the eastern Pacific Ocean. An upper level ridge extends from northern Colombia to central Nicaragua. An upper level trough passes through 17N60W in the Atlantic Ocean, toward the ABC Islands. Drier air in subsidence is apparent in water vapor imagery, from 12N northward from 75W eastward and is producing stable weather conditions generally east of 80W. Fresh to strong tradewinds prevail across south central portions of the basin south of 14.5N. Scattered moderate convection is noted across the Gulf of Honduras south of 16.5N.

The current Atlantic Ocean high pressure ridge, that is extending W-SW to the central Bahamas, will support fresh to strong trade winds in the south-central Caribbean through Sat. Winds and seas will gradually diminish late Sat through Mon as the high pressure shifts eastward and weakens. Tradewinds will increase across the south-central Caribbean late Mon through Wed as high pressure builds across the W Atlc.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have a wind from the East at 12 mph and a calm sea condition around our barrier reef.

The easterly Caribbean winds are still being deflected downwards by some air movement down over the Gulf. There is high level from the WSW over the Yucatan and another moving up from the south over Honduras, resulting in significant activity over the Toledo district right now, and presumably a fair bit of rain.

Looks as if today will be cloudier than yesterday and with a higher chance of rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 25C 77F Yesterday max. 31C 89F Yesterday Rain 4.2 mm ( 0.04")

I can confirm that we are now in one of our two mid summers. ( Midsummer as in Sun at its highest point.)

The midday Sun passed exactly over head a couple of days ago and is now passing slightly to the North of Belize.

So appears to be just before mid May, and the second one will be in August, when the Sun then is moving southwards and crosses overhead again.

A number of small swellups in various places.
