The Caribbean Sea

The basin is free of any significant surface features over the waters, however the pressure gradient between low pressure over northern Colombia and high pressure north of the basin supports fresh to strong winds in the south-central Caribbean, along with 7 to 9 ft seas. Fresh winds are noted across the approach to the Windward Passage and in the Gulf of Honduras. Moderate to locally fresh winds prevail elsewhere. Seas are 4 to 6 ft elsewhere in the central and eastern Caribbean, and 3 to 5 ft in the western Caribbean, except 1 to 3 ft in the lee of Cuba. Isolated to scattered showers are noted across the basin with the trade wind flow.

For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure north of the area and low pressure over Colombia will continue to support pulses of fresh to strong trade winds across the central Caribbean and the passages into early next week. Mainly moderate winds will prevail elsewhere. Moderate NE-E swell will impact the Tropical N Atlantic waters into early next week before decaying.

The weather remains stable in much of the region while a cold almost stationary front extends from the southern part of Florida to northeast Mexico. However this front probably does not progress further and the high pressures stabilize in much of the region. This will start changing starting next week when a new cold front arrives in the region that will bring a change in weather.

The regular easterly Caribbean winds has a fair amount of cloud in it and being slightly deflected down over Belize. There is a lot of thing high level cloud from the SW only some presently clashing and causing rain, mainly out at sea. Some high level is also coming across the Gulf, possibly being influenced by another cool air bubble.

Looks as if today will have a fair amount of cloud at two levels, some sunshine and possibly some rain shoers.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 22°C 72°F Yesterday max. 29°C 84°F Yesterday Rain 3.7mm ( 0.2") Over Night Rain 3.7mm ( 0.2" )
