The Caribbean Sea
A recent scatterometer pass confirmed fresh to strong northeast
winds off the coast of Colombia. A concurrent altimeter pass
showed seas to 8 ft there as well. A trough extends from the
southeast Yucatan Peninsula to eastern Honduras. A pair of ship
observations showed fresh SE winds over the northwest Caribbean,
south of the Yucatan Channel, between the trough and the high
pressure farther north. Elsewhere, 1020 mb high pressure north of
the area over the eastern Gulf of Mexico dominates the pattern
over the Caribbean Sea generating a moderate to fresh trades
mostly across the eastern and central basin, to include the
Windward Passage and in the lee of central Cuba. In addition to
the 6 to 8 ft off central Colombia, seas are roughly 4 to 6 ft
across the basin except for 2 to 4 ft in the northwest Caribbean.
Regional radar shows a few showers over the Leeward Islands
embedded in the trade wind flow, but no significant shower or
thunderstorms activity is evident elsewhere.
For the forecast, the high pressure over the eastern Gulf of
Mexico will continue to maintain moderate to fresh winds across
the Caribbean into Tue, with strong winds pulsing off Colombia
mainly at night. The high pressure will move eastward into the
western Atlantic and strengthen mid to late week, support fresh to
strong winds over parts of the central Caribbean and Gulf of
Honduras by mid week.
On Ambergris Caye this morning we have a wind from the SE blowing at 12 mph. The sky is changing from sunny to looking like it's going to deliver a little free water. Today's predicted high temperature is 85f.
Present Condition: Mostly clear, a few clouds in the north. Sunny in San Pedro. A slightly moist southeasterly airflow prevails over the area.
24hr Forecast: Sunny with a few cloudy spells this afternoon becoming cloudy at times tonight. A few showers will affect mainly northern and offshore areas this afternoon and then coastal and central areas tonight into tomorrow morning with the chance for isolated thunderstorms to develop; otherwise, showers will be isolated.
Outlook: Tuesday afternoon through midday Wednesday: Generally fair conditions with only isolated showers developing, if any.
