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

GRACE MAKES LANDFALL ALONG THE EASTERN YUCATAN PENINSULA OF MEXICO NEAR TULUM

Satellite images and radar data from Belize indicate that Hurricane Grace made landfall along the eastern Yucatan Peninsula around 4:45 a.m. CDT just south of Tulum, Mexico.

A Weatherflow station at Xcaret Park near Playa del Carmen, Mexico, recently measured a sustained wind of 60 mph (97 km/h) and a gust to 85 mph (137 km/h). Another Weatherflow station located at Cancun, Mexico, recently measured a sustained wind of 59 mph (95 km/h) and a gust to 80 mph (129 km/h), while the Weatherflow site located at Puerto Morelos, Mexico, recently measured a sustained wind of 51 mph (83 km/h) a gust to 70 mph (113 km/h). On Cozumel, a sustained wind of 41 mph (66 km/h) and a gust to 68 mph (109 km/h) was observed at the Cozumel Lighthouse.

We are also watching a few tropical waves, either across the tropical Atlantic or emerging off the African coast this week, but development with these seems unlikely at this time.

Belize to Experience Heavy Rains, Possible Flooding

Tropical storm winds are not expected, but the country will be impacted by rains, especially northern Belize starting tonight. There is also the possibility of flooding across the country. Chief Meteorologist Gordon goes into more details on warnings for the country and for residents to stay alert.

Ronald Gordon, Chief Meteorologist, National Meteorological Service


“In the country of Belize, we are expecting that winds could be moderate – fifteen to twenty-five knots mainly in the north and offshore areas; possibly higher gusts in showers and thunderstorms. We expect that our seas will become rough, not only because of large waves or swells that the system will be stirring up as it is coming into the Gulf of Mexico. Therefore, locally, we have already issued a small craft caution and that is likely to be upgraded to a small craft warning later tonight. The other impact that we expect is there to be an increase in rainfall. Current projections are for there to be about one to four inches of rainfall throughout tonight and into the next few days; actually until about Saturday or so. And the northern part of the country will be seeing the higher amounts, however, we are issuing a flood watch for the entire country of Belize because there is the possibility that even though I am saying one to four inches, you can have localized, higher amounts in feeder bands and thunderstorms. So those could lead to localised flooding and hence we are issuing an alert countrywide for the possibility of flooding over low-lying and flood-prone areas of the country.”

HURRICANE GRACE is now crossing the north Yucatan, still at just hurricane strength 1 and is mainly a rain event. Lots of rain in the Yucatan, almost none at all in Belize, a lot out at sea, but that is mainly going up northwards and not presently coming at Belize, although there is a significant swell up coming in towards Stann Creek area.

Today
Presently, it still looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with significant clouds, more so in the north but increasing later, quite possible some rain in coastal or north areas.

Tonight
Too early to say yet, but not as hot as the last two nights, could be some rain.

Tropical Storm Grace has nearly passed us now, and is causing our winds to come in from the SW.
