Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Present Condition: Partly cloudy skies this morning, less so in the north. Clear and windy in San Pedro. A weak tropical wave approaching the area and will bring a slight increase in moisture.
Today skies will be sunny with a few cloudy spells. Tonight skies will be partly cloudy becoming cloudy at times. Shower activity will be generally isolated except for the south and inland areas where a few more showers and isolated thunderstorms can be expected.
Winds: E-SE, 5-15 kts Sea State:
Waves: 3-5 ft.
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
For Sunday and Sunday night is for cloudy spells with a few showers and isolated thunderstorms developing mainly over inland and southern areas.
Sargassum Forecast from June 23 to June 30:
Satellite imagery continue to show high sargassum contents over our area and as a result the chances of sargassum landing on beaches across the country will remain high during the next few days. San Pedro has a high probability and a major impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook:
Tropical cyclone formation is not expected in the North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico during the next 48 hours.

The Caribbean Sea
Due to a relatively weak pressure gradient, moderate trades are
occurring over most of the basin, except gentle SE winds in the
NW Caribbean and S of 11N. Seas average 3 to 5 ft. Scattered
moderate convection is noted over Haiti and the Windward Passage.
An additional area of scattered moderate convection, associated
with the E Pacific Monsoon Trough, is noted south of 12N between
the Colombia/Venezuela border and 80W.
For the forecast, a tropical wave currently over the eastern
Caribbean will move westward across the basin through Mon. This
pattern will support moderate to fresh trade winds over the south
central Caribbean and off Honduras into early next week, with
gentle to moderate trade winds elsewhere. Winds will increase and
seas will build slightly in most areas by the middle of next week
as high pressure north of the basin extends into the basin in the
wake of the tropical wave.
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The Atlantic basin remains mostly quiet with no organized tropical systems at this time. However, there are a couple areas of concern in which we are monitoring for possible tropical development over the next few days.
The strong tropical wave that moved off the coast of Africa on Sunday continues to move into an area less favorable for tropical development and the threat for this to become a tropical depression is lowering. Regardless, we will continue to watch this wave as it moves across the Atlantic, eventually reaching the Lesser Antilles around the middle of the coming week bringing breezy conditions with showers and thunderstorms.
In the long range, we continue to monitor for possible tropical development around the middle to end of next week in the far northwestern Caribbean Sea or southwestern Gulf of Mexico.

95L is weakening due to encountering cooler sea temperatures + Sahara dust + strong wind shear ( eventually near East Caribbean islands). 95L will weaken into a strong TROPICAL WAVE tracking across the tropical Atlantic Ocean

The easterly Caribbean winds are from the SE or ESE with some patches of cloud, but high level winds from the NW have been causing a few isolated rain showers in many coastal areas. This may continue further into the morning.
Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with significant clouds later, and the chance of the odd rain shower.
Present Condition: Partly cloudy. Mostly sunny and windy in San Pedro. A weak tropical wave approaching the area and will bring a slight increase in moisture.
24hr Forecast: Today skies will be sunny with a few cloudy spells. Tonight skies will be partly cloudy becoming cloudy at times. Shower activity will be generally isolated except for the south and inland areas where a few more showers and isolated thunderstorms can be expected.
Outlook: For Sunday and Sunday night is for cloudy spells with a few showers and isolated thunderstorms developing mainly over inland and southern areas.
