Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Outlook: Wednesday and Wednesday night:- mainly fair conditions with isolated showers or thunderstorms and a few more over the south at 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 Hurricane Larry was centered near Lat 23.8N Lon 55.1W, or about 830 miles SE of Bermuda. Tropical cyclone formation is not expected in the North Atlantic, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico during the next 48 hours. Click for more of the tropical weather outlook...

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

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

Aside from the tropical wave, scattered moderate convection is ongoing in the vicinity of the eastern extension of the eastern Pacific Ocean monsoon trough, that stretches from 10N75W into southern Nicaragua. The convection is confined to areas S of 15N and W of 70W. Otherwise, only isolated trade wind showers are moving E in moderate trades. Seas are 3 to 6 ft, highest in the south central Caribbean. Atlantic passages in the Leeward Islands are experiencing swell from Major Hurricane Larry, that is well NE of the area, so some seas of 4 to 7 ft are observed.

For the forecast, Major Hurricane Larry will continue to move farther north of the area into late week. Associated moderate to large swell will continue to move into the region through mid week. Elsewhere, mainly moderate trade winds will persist, pulsing to fresh winds off Colombia mainly at night.

At 5 a.m. AST, the center of Hurricane Larry was located over the Atlantic Ocean about 830 miles (1340 km) southeast of Bermuda. Larry is moving toward the northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Wednesday. A turn toward the north-northwest and north with an increase in forward speed is forecast on Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher gusts - a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Larry is a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km). The estimated minimum central pressure is 958 mb (28.29 inches). Some gradual weakening is forecast during the next several days.

We are still in the Monsoon belt, there are many ITCZ active areas around us. That area that caused us all that rain is now up in the Gulf and still continuing to cause rain up there, it might develop into a storm, but that wont affect us. There has been one swellup right over PG area and that is still causing rain down there.

Looks as if today will be significant sunshine, but with continuing high level clouds in most areas and Caribbean clouds developing, probably the odd isolated rain shower later.

The potential for strong storms in the peninsula is maintained by zone of instability and vortex in height in the Gulf of Mexico. Pay attention to the southwestern Caribbean for another zone of instability.

SACD is delighted to be participating in the #BelizeBlueCarbon field research. A national research project to determine the carbon sinks in mangrove and seagrass ecosystems. Today the team is heading to the new river to do some inland transects. An excellent location to find very tall mangroves.
