The Caribbean Sea

A surface trough extends across the NW Caribbean from the Isle of Youth to the Honduras/Guatemala border near 17N88W. Clouds with possible isolated showers are along and west of the trough. The remainder of the Caribbean basin is free of any significant weather features or precipitation areas. Overnight ASCAT satellite wind pass revealed fresh trades over the south-central Caribbean, with strong winds in the Gulf of Venezuela and within 120 nm of the Colombia coast. Fresh NE winds are west of the aforementioned surface trough. Moderate trades prevail elsewhere across the basin. Seas are likely 8-10 ft in the south-central and SW Caribbean, with 4-6 ft seas elsewhere.

For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure north of the area and low pressure over Colombia will support pulses of fresh to strong trade winds across the central Caribbean through Sat. The Gulf of Honduras will experience nightly pulses of fresh winds at night from Thu night to Sun night. Gentle to moderate winds will prevail elsewhere through Fri before increasing slightly this weekend.

The easterly Caribbean winds are now firmly back with us, but having to ride over the cold air that was here, causing a lot cloud, some of which has formed a wall off the coast and been snagged by some high level SW winds, causing a line of small swellups and I am sure rain. Inland there is a lot of fog, which will thin as the day warms up.

Looks as if there will be significant sunshine after the fog and low cloud has thinned out, there could be some rain in various patches, not clear if the off shore rain will come in or not.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 21°C 70°F Yesterday max. 24°C 74°F Yesterday Rain 5.7 mm ( 0.2") Over Night Rain 2.3 mm ( 0.1" )
