The Caribbean Sea

A cold front extends from west-central Cuba near 22N81W to 20N84W, where it becomes a stationary front to 19N86W. A trough extends off the tail-end of the front from 19N87W to 16N88W in the Gulf of Honduras. Showers are present along the trough in addition to isolated showers along the front. Fresh N winds continue northwest of the front with seas to 8 ft. Similar winds are present in the western Gulf of Honduras.

Strong gale- force winds continue off the coast of Colombia and in the SW Caribbean with moderate to locally fresh trades in the eastern basin. Seas are 8-11 ft in the SW Caribbean and 4-6 ft elsewhere.

For the forecast, surface ridging across the SW N Atlantic with low pressure over Colombia will continue to support pulses of fresh to strong trade winds across the central basin through Sat. The gale-force winds near Colombia will end by early this morning. Fresh NE winds and 8 ft seas continue in the Yucatan channel behind the cold front that extends from western Cuba to the Yucatan. These conditions will gradually diminish through tonight as the front stalls before dissipating. Moderate to locally fresh easterly winds are expected to diminish in the E Caribbean today and resume again tonight through Sat night.

The Caribbean winds are pushing back and perhaps over the cool air, but coming down from the NE. The cool surface wind is from the SW not much trace of any high level winds. Presently a lot of cloud, some low cloud or fog.

Looks as if today will be mainly cloudy for much of the day, there could be a few sunshine patches and there could be some rain patches almost anywhere.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 20°C 68°F Yesterday max. 29°C 84°F Yesterday Rain 20.6 mm ( 0.8") Over Night Rain 0.1 mm ( 0" )
