The Caribbean Sea
The monsoon trough stretches across NW Colombia into the eastern
Pacific. This is the focal point for scattered moderate to strong
convection in the SW Caribbean, S of 11N between 75W to 83W. Fresh
to strong trade winds are in the south-central Caribbean with
fresh winds in the Windward Passage and Gulf of Honduras. Seas are
8 to 10 ft in the south-central Caribbean and 4-6 ft elsewhere.
For the forecast, fresh to strong trades will prevail across the
central and portions of the southwest Caribbean through Wed
night. By Thu, winds will become fresh to locally strong and
continue through the weekend. Moderate to locally fresh winds are
expected in the eastern portions of the basin through the rest of
the week. In the northwest Caribbean, fresh winds will dominate
through Wed and become moderate later in the week. Fresh to strong
winds will pulse at night in the Gulf of Honduras and the
Windward Passage through Wed night.
The easterly Caribbean winds are in control of the area, there is actually very little high level cloud, only a bit out at sea. There is the remains of cloud clashing over Toledo, with a lot of cloud, possibly some rain, but clearing up.
Looks as if today will have a fair amount of sunshine, but there will be quite a bit of cloud also, probably not much rain, except down south.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 24°C 76°F Yesterday max. 31°C 87°F Yesterday Rain 5.6 mm ( 0.2") This Morning Rain 3.3 mm ( 0.1" )
Some significant clouds and could be the odd rain showers, but mainly sun and cloud. Thin high level over the south.
Present Condition: Partly cloudy, mostly in the south. Relatively moist conditions prevail. Operators of small crafts should exercise caution as winds may become gusty at times.
24hr Forecast: Sunny with some cloudy spells during the day time and cloudy at times tonight. A few showers and isolated thunderstorms will occur around the country this afternoon; then activity will linger over the south tonight into tomorrow morning.
Outlook: A few showers and isolated thunderstorms will linger over the south, while activity will be isolated elsewhere for Wednesday afternoon through midday Thursday.
