Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Satellite derived wind data indicate fresh to strong trade winds across the central Caribbean, and fresh to locally strong winds in the Windward passage, and in the Gulf of Honduras. Moderate to fresh winds are noted elsewhere. Seas are in the 6-9 ft range across the central Caribbean, but mainly between 70W and 75W. Seas are in the 3-4 ft range over the NE Caribbean, and 4-6 ft elsewhere. Clusters of moderate to strong convection are over the SW Caribbean, mainly S of 12N, in association with the eastern Pacific monsoon trough, that extends from northern Colombia to Costa Rica.

For the forecast, fresh to locally strong trade winds will dominate most of east and central Caribbean today. A broad area of low pressure is expected to form over the western Caribbean Sea in a couple of days from a tropical wave currently located over the central Caribbean Sea along 72W. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form late this week or this weekend while the system moves northwestward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea, and near or across the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Based on the forecast, winds and waves will likely increase between 77W and the Yucatan Peninsula Fri and Sat.

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

Over the Atlantic basin on this Tuesday evening, NHC continues to watch three areas of disturbed weather

The first is a broad area of low pressure that's expected to form over the southwestern Caribbean Sea in a couple of days from a tropical wave currently located over the central Caribbean Sea. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development of the low if it remains over water, and a tropical depression could form late this week or this weekend while the system moves northwestward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea, across the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, and into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by Sunday. It has a low (20 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a medium (60 percent) chance during the next five days.

The second is a broad trough of low pressure that's producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the central tropical Atlantic about 1000 miles east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands. Little development of this system is expected during the next day or two due to unfavorable upper-level winds. Afterwards, environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form by the end of the week while the system turns eastward over the central Atlantic. It has a low (20 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a high (70 percent) chance during the next five days.

The third is a tropical wave over the far eastern tropical Atlantic located several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a concentrated area of showers and thunderstorms. Some development of this system is possible during the next several days while it moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph over the eastern tropical Atlantic. Upper-level winds are forecast to become less conducive for development by the weekend.

It has a low (20 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a low (30 percent) chance during the next five days.

We are monitoring multiple tropical waves in the Atlantic basin for further development into possible tropical cyclones, August 24-31, 2021.

The tropical wave in the Eastern Caribbean, now designated Invest99L, is of immediate concern. The NHC-Miami has increased the probability of tropical depression or tropical storm formation in the next 5 days to 60%. People/Friends in Texas +Louisiana + Mexico should be closely monitoring the track and intensity of this developing tropical system. The next names on the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season list are Ida and Julian. The latest model guidance runs have Texas in a landfall target zone; however, there has been a trend to the east; thus, people/friends in Louisiana should be monitoring 99L.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we are intently watching storm developments. We have a wind from the East at 13 mph creating a calm sea condition around our barrier reef. Today's expected high temperature is set at 87 f.

Crown Weather:

Invest 99-L Located Over The South-Central Caribbean: A strong and active tropical wave is located over the south-central Caribbean today. This wave is producing an increasing amount of deeper thunderstorm activity, however, the environmental conditions are currently unfavorable for development due to strong wind shear.

It is expected that all of this will change once Invest 99-L moves into the northwestern Caribbean by about Friday into Saturday where the environmental conditions are expected to become more favorable for development. This means that it’s fairly likely that a tropical depression and then possibly a tropical storm will develop in the northwestern Caribbean on Friday into Friday night with tropical storm conditions quite possible across the eastern and northern Yucatan Peninsula on Friday night into Saturday.

As we get into this weekend, the track and strength of Invest 99-L needs to be watched extremely closely. It appears that the environmental conditions will be favorable for strengthening and potentially significant strengthening. As for potential track, the trend in the guidance is for a continued weakening of the high pressure ridge over the southeastern United States and an open space for this system to head to the northwest and potentially impact some part of the Texas and Louisiana coast as a hurricane early next week.

I still think that there is a 90-plus percent chance that we will have tropical development in the northwestern Caribbean beginning on Friday. This means that the eastern and northern Yucatan Peninsula is very likely to be affected by tropical storm conditions on Friday night and Saturday.

I also think that there is a 90-plus percent chance that we will have a strengthening tropical storm and then a strengthening hurricane that heads first west-northwestward into the southern Gulf of Mexico later Saturday into Sunday and then potentially turn a little to northwest later Sunday and head for the northwestern Gulf of Mexico.

It needs to be strongly emphasized that the environmental conditions look favorable for not only intensification, but also favorable for rapid strengthening from Saturday night to Monday night/Tuesday. This 48-60 hours over a very favorable environment for strengthening means that it’s possible that an intense Gulf of Mexico hurricane is possible early next week.

Where this system makes landfall late Monday or Tuesday is going to hinge on the strength and position of an upper level high pressure ridge that will be located over the southeastern United States. The trend over the last couple of days is for a weaker high pressure ridge that doesn’t extend that far west. Also, there are trends in the guidance that hint that an upper level trough may sweep through the Ohio Valley early next week. This combination of upper level weather systems could be enough to turn Invest 99-L northwestward and maybe even northward towards the upper Texas coast of southern Louisiana.

Another factor that’s going to be very important is the exact location of where this potential system forms. If it forms in the area around the southwestern Caribbean, it would probably interact with Central America with a much weaker system heading for eastern Mexico. On the other hand, if this system forms on the northern end of the tropical wave near the northwestern Caribbean, it would be guided towards an impact with the middle and upper Texas coast and southern Louisiana.

My thinking, at this point, is that the most likely track is for this system to develop into a tropical storm near the eastern and northeastern Yucatan Peninsula late Friday and then move either across the northern Yucatan Peninsula or through the Yucatan Channel. From there, I think it’s most plausible that this system will make landfall somewhere between Corpus Christi and Morgan City as a hurricane late Monday or early Tuesday.

It’s HOT! Keeping an eye on the storm system projected to come our way as a depression. We, in San Pedro, have had some rain showers…one or two hard ones this week but it looks like Southern Belize has been drenched! Photo by San Pedro Scoop
