Caye Caulker:

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

Tropical Rainstorm Fred remains very poorly organized and is centered over the southeast Gulf of Mexico. Fred is expected to eventually make a turn to the north this weekend, eventually making landfall Monday night in Alabama. Fred should regain wind intensity over the eastern Gulf of Mexico and should become a tropical storm once again on Monday.

Also, Tropical Storm Grace is located to the east of the Leeward Islands. Grace continues to race westward and will cross the Leeward Islands tonight, followed by Puerto Rico on Sunday and Hispaniola Monday and Monday night.

Finally, the tropical wave that is crossing the Cabo Verde is unlikely to develop into a more organized tropical system as it tracks west into the central Atlantic. Another tropical wave can emerge off the African coast later next week.

At 5 a.m. AST, the center of Tropical Storm Grace was located about 150 miles (245 km) southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico. It's moving toward the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h). A continued west-northwestward motion at a slower forward speed is expected during the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center. Some strengthening is expected before Grace reaches Hispaniola on Monday. Weakening is forecast as the system crosses Hispaniola Monday and Monday night. Little change in strength is expected on Tuesday.

Odd weather at present, the easterly Caribbean winds are turning sharply up north, just off our coast, they are being sucked in by that still very active TROPICAL STORM FRED, just off the west coast of Florida, which has intensified, and in doing so, pulling up the Caribbean winds, resulting in little or no wind over Belize and few clouds

Today will be mainly sunny, there are presently, very few clouds around and no air movement, perhaps a trace from the west, not expecting any rain, but yesterday, there was a rapid swellup, which caused small areas of heavy rain which could happen again today.

Probably a calm overnight, but not clear how it will turn out as yet.
