Belize Weather Forecast: October 23, 2021

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: Present Condition: Mostly cloudy conditions throughout the country including in San Pedro. Moist and unstable conditions prevail.
Advisories: Operators of small crafts are advised to exercise caution for possible gusty winds and locally rough seas near thunderstorms, developing especially during nighttime and early morning hours. A flood watch is in effect for the possibility of flooding over low-lying and flood prone areas.
24-hour forecast: Cloudy spells with a few showers and thunderstorms along the coast this morning, then decreasing and becoming isolated across the country later this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will re-develop along the coast and over southern districts tonight.
Winds: E, 5-15 kts
Sea State: Slight
Waves: 1-3 ft
Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Outlook: A similar trend will occur on Sunday and Sunday night.
Sargassum Forecast from October 19 to October 27: Latest satellite imagery suggests that sargassum in our area continues to decrease. However, there is still a small chance that a few mats could drift into some areas during the next few days. San Pedro has a low probability and a minimal impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook: Tropical Cyclone formation is not expected in the North Atlantic, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, during the next 48 hours. Click for more of the tropical weather outlook...

Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical wave in the Atlantic, and three in the Caribbean.

The most recent scatterometer data provided observations of moderate to locally fresh trades across the east and central Caribbean, with mainly gentle to moderate winds over the NW Caribbean and S of 12N. Seas are generally 3-6 ft S of 18N E of 80W, and 1-3 ft elsewhere. Moderate to fresh winds are E of the Lesser Antilles and eastern Caribbean, with seas of 8 to 10 ft based on nearby observations. A diffluent pattern aloft will continue to support the development of showers and thunderstorms over Cuba, Jamaica, northern Central America, and the Yucatan Peninsula today. Shallow moisture embedded in the trade wind flow is noted elsewhere producing isolated to scattered showers.

For the forecast, high pressure N of the area will support fresh to locally strong trades E of the Windward Islands and across the eastern Caribbean through the early next week, with winds reaching locally strong in the Venezuela basin through Sun. Gentle to moderate tradewinds are expect to prevail across the basin for the latter part of the week.

The Atlantic basin still remains quiet with no organized tropical systems and no development expected through at least the last few days of October.

The tropical season runs through the end of November and therefore still has more than a month left to go, so more tropical activity still remains possible. Wind shear may become more favorable for tropical development in the Caribbean in early November, but all is quiet in the Atlantic for the time being.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have a calm sea condition around our barrier reef from a 7mph wind from the East. Yesterday the island received 5 inches of rain in a 24 hour period leaving us with muddy roads and standing water. Today's expected high temperature is set at 86 f.

Cloud again moving up off Honduras, bringing rain with it, presently in many coastal areas. The normal easterly Caribbean winds have started, and there is high level cloud from the SW.

Looks as if today will be largely cloudy, both low cloud and high level cloud, some rain showers expected, particularly coastal areas.
