The Atlantic basin has no organized tropical systems at this time.

A tropical wave associated with a weak area of low pressure is located less than 200 miles east of the Windward Islands. While this system continues to produce showers and thunderstorms primarily east of its center, strong upper-level winds will likely prohibit further development on Tuesday. It has a low (0 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and five days. Regardless of development, the system could produce locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds across portions of the central and northern Lesser Antilles on Tuesday.

There is another tropical wave moving over Hispaniola, producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. While environmental conditions are not expected to support development of this system over the next day or two, some gradual development is possible starting on Wednesday when the system nears the southeastern Bahamas and begins moving slowly eastward. It has a near zero chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a low (10 percent) chance during the next five days.

Tropical wave 36 crossing south of the peninsula. Activity is very limited by powerful anticyclone on average levels over the Gulf. The same will happen to 37. We're going to have very hot days in the area. Map below from late Monday night.

On Ambergris Caye this morning it seems we have a warm sunny day ahead with an expected high temperature of 90 f. The breeze is from the East and the sea around our barrier reef is calm. A beautiful morning.

The bubble from the south is easing, slow easterly Caribbean winds starting to come in. Very little high winds.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny after the fog has burnt off, some clouds will then develop later this morning, no rain expected. No rain on the radar.
