Belize Weather Forecast: September 1, 2021


General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Mostly clear, a few clouds in the southwest. Mostly clear in San Pedro. Generally fair weather prevails.
Advisories: A small craft caution is in effect for occasionally gusty winds and locally rough seas.
24-hour forecast: Sunny with cloudy spells today and partly cloudy skies tonight. Showers or thunderstorms will be isolated.
Winds: E-SE, 10-20 kts
Sea State: Moderate - Rough
Waves: 5-7 ft
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Outlook: Showers and thunderstorms will be isolated on Thursday then will increase over most areas during Thursday night.
Sargassum Forecast from August 31 to September 8: Satellite imagery show a few sargassum mats offshore and therefore there continues to be medium chance of new mats landing on beaches across the country during the next few days. San Pedro has a medium probability and a moderate impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook: At 3:00am Tropical Depression Kate was near 25.7N 51.7W or about 895 miles NE of the Northern Leeward Islands An area of low pressure over the south-western Caribbean Sea, has a low chance of becoming a tropical depression over the next couple of days as it moves westward or west-northwestward at 5 to 10 mph toward Central America.

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There are two tropical waves in the Atlantic, and one in the Caribbean.

An upper-level low spinning over the Bahamas and central Cuba is triggering scattered showers and a few thunderstorms near the S coast of W Cuba, but particularly over the Gulf of Batabano and the Isle of Youth. Scattered showers with embedded thunderstorms also noted over the SW Caribbean in association with a broad area of low pressure.

Gentle to moderate trades are noted over much of the basin except fresh to strong winds in the Gulf of Honduras and just N of the broad area of low pressure previously located near 12N78W. Seas are 6-8 ft in the Gulf of Honduras, 3-5 ft over the NW and SW parts of the basin, with 1-3 ft seas elsewhere.

For the forecast, the pressure gradient between a ridge east of Florida and lower pressure over northern Colombia will support moderate to fresh trade winds over the S central and NW Caribbean. Similar wind speeds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras at night through the weekend. A broad area of low pressure is producing disorganized shower activity over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Some slow development of this system is possible over the next couple of days while it moves westward or west- northwestward at 5 to 10 kt toward Central America. Thereafter, land interaction with Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico will likely limit further development of this system. Regardless of development, heavy rains are possible across portions of Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula late this week and this weekend.

NHC has upgraded Tropical Depression Twelve to Tropical Storm Larry, the twelfth named storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

At 5 a.m. AST, the center of Tropical Storm Larry was located over the far eastern Atlantic Ocean about 175 miles (280 km) south of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands. Larry is moving toward the west near 20 mph (31 km/h). A westward to west-northwestward motion is expected during the next couple of days, followed by a turn to the northwest during weekend.

Not much happening in the way of weather around us at present, the Caribbean winds are from the SE The traces of high level from the NE have all bust stopped, there is a strong high level from the SW but over Honduras and into the sea, where there is a lot of cloud and ITCZ activity developing, which might affect us in a few days time.

Today
Generally a sunny day with some clouds developing, no rain showing up or expected.

Tonight
Probably some cloud, but dry night.

The cloud around the Nicaragua and Honduras coast out in the sea is simply Monsoon belt ITCZ activity and is still on and off this morning. . . It will have areas that swellup from time to time. . . It appears to be due to two different air masses and a lot of moisture. . . . ITCZ swellups are usually the place where tropical storms can start. At present, no indication of any start, but, as did IDA, they can start up very rapidly. So we do need to keep watching. August / September are particularly high storm risks.

I see a lot of people think the Coriolis effect is the cause of spin-ups, but that is not correct.. . different air movements can cause spin to start, the Coriolis effect can only cause rotation, if the heavy cloud area, starts moving northwards, away from the equator, but whilst only moving east - west, then it can't cause rotation. But there are many areas of ITCZ swellup, which, in them selves, are unstable wet air.

The probability of cyclonic formation in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico has increased from 20% to 30%.

Recent satellite wind data indicates the area of low pressure located in the southwestern Caribbean Sea has a well-defined circulation. However, shower and thunderstorm activity remains disorganized and displaced north of the center. Some slow development of this system remains possible over the next day or two if it remains over open water while moving west-northwestward or northwestward at 5 to 10 mph along the coast of Central America. By early next week, the system will have another opportunity for gradual development in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of development, heavy rains are possible across portions of Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula by late this week into the weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.

An anticyclone dominates the area. A zone of instability continues to percolate in the Caribbean. It will bring rains on the weekend.
