Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A sharp upper-level trough extends from the vicinity of the southeastern Bahamas to across eastern Cuba and to the southwestern Caribbean. A surface trough is analyzed in the W Caribbean extending along 84W from 17N-22N. This is allowing for the development of afternoon and evening thunderstorms across the western and central Caribbean Sea. Scattered moderate convection is also noted in the SW and south- central Caribbean, especially near the northern coast of Colombia. A recent scatterometer pass indicate fresh trades within 130 nm of the coast of NW Venezuela, including the waters surrounding the ABC islands, while gentle to moderate trades prevail elsewhere. Seas in the central and E Caribbean are 2-4 ft, while 1-2 ft are noted elsewhere.

For the forecast, Hurricane Sam is near 11.5N 42.2W 993 mb at 5 AM EDT moving W at 13 kt. Maximum sustained winds 65 kt gusts 80 kt. Sam will move to 11.7N 44.0W this afternoon, 12.1N 45.9W Sat morning, 12.5N 47.4W Sat afternoon, 12.9N 48.7W Sun morning, 13.4N 50.0W Sun afternoon, and 14.1N 51.1W Mon morning. Sam will change little in intensity as it moves to 15.9N 53.8W by early Tue. Meanwhile, moderate trade winds will persist over much of the Caribbean into early next week, becoming fresh over the south- central Caribbean starting tonight as high pressure builds east of the Bahamas. Fresh to strong winds are forecast in the Gulf of Honduras Sun night.

NHC has upgraded Sam to a hurricane, the seventh one of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season. At 5 a.m. AST, the center of Hurricane Sam was located over the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean about 1470 miles (2365 km) east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands. Sam is moving toward the west near 15 mph (24 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through tonight. A decrease in forward speed and a motion toward the west-northwest are expected to take place during the weekend.

We are also watching a non-tropical low, what was once Tropical Storm Odette well east-southeast of St. John's, Newfoundland. This low may gain intensity over the next few days as it tracks to the south and southeast. Should this become sufficiently organized, it could be renamed.

There is not much air movement over our area. Looks as if there has been a movement down from the north which has not come to a stop just off the coast, and not any significant Caribbean winds pushing against it. Jut a trace of high level cloud from the north, causing some isolated rain showers out at sea.

Looks like today will be mainly s sunny day, but with areas of cloud and a chance later, of some rain showers.

It's beautiful here on Ambergris Caye and the sea around our barrier reef is very calm. Some thunder in the distance and a little rain last night. Today's expected high temperature is set at 88f.

Influence of a stationary front in the Gulf of Mexico and a trough over the Western Caribbean will favor storms today in the Yucatan Peninsula.
