Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There are several tropical waves moving across the basin.

Over the southwest Caribbean, the monsoon trough extends along 10N between 76W-82W. Scattered moderate convection is noted along the trough mainly south of 11N. Scatterometer data depicts fresh to strong trades prevailing across the south central portion of the basin south of 16N between 71W-82W, while gentle to moderate trades prevail elsewhere.

The Bermuda High north of the area combined with lower pressure over N Colombia will continue to support fresh to strong easterly winds over the south-central Caribbean through most of the week. Expect an increase in speed and areal coverage from Mon night through Wed night while reaching as far west as the Hispaniola adjacent waters. Fresh to strong E winds will occur in the afternoons and early evenings for the next several days in the Windward Passage. Fresh to strong winds are expected to pulse in the Gulf of Honduras by Thu. No tropical cyclone activity is expected through midweek.

Caye Caulker:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

There are no organized systems in the Atlantic basin at this time. While there are a few tropical waves crossing the basin, tropical development is not anticipated through at least early this week, mainly due to a broad area of Saharan dust over much of the Atlantic basin.

The broad upper-air low pressure system in the southwestern Atlantic that we have been keeping an eye on for the past few days still seems unlikely to develop, though it is producing a few clusters of rain and thunderstorms. While this area will be monitored for signs of tropical or subtropical development, computer guidance continues to suggest that development will not occur as there remains limited shower and thunderstorm activity at this time.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have a wind from the East at 14 mph creating a moderate sea condition around our barrier reef. We're experiencing an occasional rain shower but nothing measurable on my crude gauge for days. Today's expected high temperature is set at 89 f.

The Caribbean winds are reasonably steady from the east and with a few clouds in them, but there is mid-high level cloud coming up from the south, causing many areas of clashing and many rain showers.

Looks as if it will be a mixture of rain showers, cloud, both low and high and occasional sunshine.

Probably continuing with some scattered rain showers, no sunshine.

Probably less chance of rain showers than today, a bit more sunshine.
