Belize Weather Forecast: September 17, 2021


General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Partly cloudy this morning throughout the country, more so in the south and west. Partly cloudy in San Pedro. Generally fair weather prevails.
Advisories: None.
24-hour forecast: Sunny with cloudy spells today and partly cloudy skies tonight. Showers or thunderstorms will be isolated, with possible sligtly more over the southern districts tonight.
Winds: E-SE, 10-20 kts
Sea State: Moderate
Waves: 4-6 ft
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Outlook: For Saturday and Saturday night is for a similar trend.
Sargassum Forecast from September 14 to September 22: Latest satellite imagery suggest that Sargassum concentration offshore has decreased significantly. However, there is the chance that a few small mats could still drift onshore during the next few days San Pedro has a low probability and a minimal impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook: A broad area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles SSE of the Outer Banks of North Carolina has a high chance of tropical cyclone development during the next couple of days. A broad area of low pressure located about 1,000 miles WSW of the Cabo Verde Islands has a medium chance of becoming a tropical depression during the next couple of days. .

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

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

A recent data from a scatterometer satellite pass and reports from buoy 42058 near 14N75W indicated a large area of fresh winds across the south-central Caribbean. Stronger winds are likely off the coast of northeast Colombia. Trade wind convergence is responsible for the line of showers and thunderstorms from central Panama to central Nicaragua. A few showers are embedded in the trade wind flow across the eastern Caribbean, but no significant convection is noted otherwise. Roatan in the Bay Islands of Honduras reported moderate to fresh winds, indicative of fresh to strong winds pulsing across the Gulf of Honduras. Buoy and altimeter satellite data confirm 6 to 7 ft seas over the south- central Caribbean and 8 ft is plausible off Colombia. Moderate seas are in place elsewhere except for slight seas in parts of the far northwest Caribbean.

For the forecast, the Atlantic ridge will build into the Caribbean through Sat, supporting fresh to strong winds over the south- central Caribbean and over the Gulf of Honduras into early Sun. The ridge will weaken starting Sun as an area of low pressure currently well east of the area moves to the northeast of the Leeward Islands early next week. There is a medium chance this low pressure will form into a tropical cyclone over the next couple of days. Regardless of further development, expect increase winds, seas and thunderstorms east of the Leewards early next week.

NHC continues to watch three area for possible tropical cyclone development. They are:

1) Invest 95L: Showers and thunderstorms remain disorganized and somewhat limited in association with a tropical wave and broad area of low pressure located about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. However, environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development during the next few days, and a tropical depression could still form over the weekend. This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days. It has a medium (60 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a high (70 percent) chance during the next five days.

2) Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a broad area of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles south-southeast of the Outer Banks of North Carolina have changed little in organization this evening and the system still lacks a well-defined center. However, environmental conditions are becoming more conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or so while the system moves northward to north-northeastward off the southeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. coasts. Regardless of development, this system could bring high surf to portions of the southeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. coasts through this weekend. It has a high (7 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and next five days. Additional information on this system, including gale warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the NOAA Ocean Prediction Center at ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.php.

3) Disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms over the far eastern tropical Atlantic are associated with a tropical wave just offshore of the west coast of Africa. Environmental conditions are forecast to be only marginally conducive, and development, if any, of this system should be slow to occur over the next few days while the system moves west-northwestward to northwestward over the far eastern Atlantic. It has a low (10 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a low (20 percent) chance during the next five days.

There is still a trace of air movement up from the south, but the easterly Caribbean winds are resuming, with high level coming down from the NNE, which could again, cause some clashing this afternoon. Ther were a few small rain shower areas earlier, but not now.

Looks as if today will again be mainly sunny, but with a bit more cloud than yesterday.

The ESE Caribbean winds are now well established, causing some typical clouds, and a few small showers. The high level air from the NNE is very thin, so presently not having any affect on our weather. But, if the low level winds result in rising hot air, they could impact on the high level winds and cause cloud to form, as happened yesterday, mainly over the mountains or just before the mountains, which could cause rain this afternoon.

Present Condition: Mostly sunny and HOT throughout the country, clear skies and very hot in San Pedro. Generally fair weather prevails over our area.

24hr Forecast: Mostly sunny during the daytime and clear to partly cloudy tonight. Generally fair weather will prevail, with isolated showers or isolated thunderstorms developing. There is the chance of a few showers or thunderstorms developing over the south during the night.

Outlook: For Saturday afternoon through to midday on Sunday is for continuing generally fair weather, with isolated showers or isolated thunderstorms developing.
