The Caribbean Sea

A recent scatterometer satellite pass indicated fresh to strong winds across the Windward Passage, following a cold front that move through that area yesterday evening. Seas are likely 5 to 7 ft in the Windward Passage. The same scatterometer pass showed fresh winds off Nicaragua. Generally moderate NE to E winds persists elsewhere. Seas are 3 to 5 ft, except 5 to 7 ft outside of shallow areas between western Panama and Nicaragua. A few showers may be ongoing between Jamaica and southern Haiti close to the frontal boundary, but no significant shower or thunderstorm activity exists elsewhere.

For the forecast, fresh to strong N winds over the Windward Passage will diminish by early Sat as the front dissipates through tonight. High pressure building north of the area behind the front will support moderate to fresh winds over much of the central and southwest Caribbean through early next week, including overnight winds pulsing to strong off Colombia starting Sat night.

The easterly Caribbean winds are starting to push back, but above the cool air, so causing a fair amount of cloud, presently over the Caribbean, a little over southern Toledo. Only a tiny hint of any high level cloud.

Today will start of bright sunny clear skies, then some small clouds will develop, not clear yet when the heavier Caribbean clouds will come in, possibly this afternoon. There could be some rain showers later this afternoon in parts of the north and south of Belize.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 20°C 67°F Yesterday max. 26°C 80°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0") Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0" )
