The Caribbean Sea

Strong winds are ongoing within 120 nm N of the Caribbean coast of Colombia, with moderate to fresh trades dominating the much of the rest of the basin, except for gentle to moderate E winds in the NW Caribbean. Seas are 5 to 7 ft, except 8 to 10 ft offshore Colombia and 2 to 4 ft in the NW basin. No significant convection is ongoing this morning.

The gradient between retreating high pressure to the northeast and lower pressure over South America will lead to fresh to strong winds across waters offshore Colombia into tonight, with moderate to fresh winds elsewhere across the basin. Large N to NE swell will continue in the tropical N Atlantic into Tue. A cold front will move through the Yucatan Channel late Tue, then reach an eastern Cuba to Nicaragua line by Wed night, before stalling. Fresh N winds can be expected behind this front.

Rains and thunderstorm activity are also observed in southern Mexico Campeche, Tabasco and the Yucatan Peninsula, while in Central America showers and storm activity over the central and northern part of Guatemala, and the other countries of Central America and the Caribbean.

There is a wall of clouds across the Gulf, the easterly Caribbean winds are being slowed down, so looks as if a cold front is pushing in our way in the next day or so. There is a lot of high cloud from the Pacific, over northern Mexico and the Gulf, which is now sweeping thinner cloud over the Yucatan and over Belize over night and this morning.

Presently there is a lot of cloud over Belize, but fairly thin and patchy, some blue sky some sun coming through, probably little or no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 23°C 74°F Yesterday max. 30°C 86°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0") Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0" )

Cold front #Huchim (not. 14) is located over the Gulf of Mexico. The low pressure has already been formed that will give it more punch.
