The Caribbean Sea
The northern portion of a tropical wave is impacting the southern
portion of the basin. An upper-level trough extends from the central Atlantic to
Hispaniola to Panama. To the east of the upper-trough axis,
scattered showers and isolated tstorms are occurring over the
eastern half of the basin, mainly east of 71W. Scattered tstorms
are also seen in between Jamaica and the Windward Passage. The
monsoon trough in the SW Caribbean is enhancing scattered showers
and tstorms within 90 nm of the coasts of Panama, Costa Rica and
A moderate pressure gradient across the basin is supporting
fresh to strong winds over the south central Caribbean, including
near the coast of Colombia and Venezuela. There is also an area
of fresh winds prevailing over the Gulf of Honduras. Moderate to
fresh trades prevail elsewhere. Seas are 5-7 ft in the E
Caribbean, 7-9 ft in the south-central basin, and 3-5 ft in the NW
For the forecast, fresh to strong winds will pulse over the south
central Caribbean and the Gulf of Honduras at night, tonight and
Mon night. Fresh to strong E winds will also pulse in the Windward
Passage during the late afternoon and evening hours through Mon
night. High pressure ridging north of the area will continue
supporting moderate to fresh tradewinds elsewhere through Tue.
Winds will diminish to gentle to moderate by midweek. An
enhancement of showers and tstms is expected to persist in the
eastern Caribbean through Tue due to the combination of a quasi-
stationary upper-level trough and tropical waves traversing the
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
There remains no organized tropical features in the Atlantic Basin at this time, and none are expected to develop through at least the middle of next week. This is the result of moderate-to-strong wind shear remaining in place across much of the Gulf of Mexico, southwestern Atlantic Ocean and western Caribbean Sea, areas where tropical development usually occurs at this time of year.
Long-range guidance continues to show conditions becoming more favorable for tropical development across the western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico around the middle of the month with a decrease in wind shear, increase in tropical moisture and the development of a gyre (broad area of rotation) near Central America. These factors should allow thunderstorm activity to increase, which may cause an area of low pressure to form. This may be the next opportunity for tropical development in the basin.

The easterly Caribbean winds are already developing cloud over land. The high level winds are coming down directly from the North, which did cause a small swell up area in southern Toledo, the main rain out at sea. A few very small spots in other coastal areas, but now clearing up.
Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but there could be more swellups this afternoon, particularly around the mountains.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 25°C 77°F Yesterday max. 32°C 90°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
Present Condition: Mostly clear throughout the country. Totally sunny and windy in San Pedro. A relatively moist easterly airflow dominates our weather. Operators of small crafts are advised to exrecise caution as winds may become gusty at times. Heat alert: Residents, especially those inland, are advised to stay hydrated and avoid outdoor activity as much as possible.
24hr Forecast: Sunny with a few cloudy spells during the daytime and partly cloudy tonight. Showers will be isolated along with the chance forisolated thunderstorms inland this afternoon or over the south during the early morning hours.
Outlook: Mainly fair conditions with isolated showers and the chance for isolated thunderstorms developing.
