The Caribbean Sea

The pressure gradient between high pressure in the western Atlantic and the Colombian low continues to support fresh to strong easterly winds across the majority of the central and eastern Caribbean with 6-8 ft seas. Recent scatterometer data revealed strong northeasterlies in the Windward Passage. The strongest winds in the basin extend off the coast of Colombia into the central Caribbean with near gale force winds and 7-10 ft seas. Conditions are more favorable in the Northwestern Caribbean where scatterometer data confirms a moderate easterly breeze with 3-5 ft seas likely. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are observed roughly 90 nm west of the Cayman Islands and in the Yucatan Channel.

For the forecast, the tight pressure gradient between high pressure north of the area and low pressure over Colombia will continue to support pulses of fresh to strong east to northeast winds across the central Caribbean and the passages through Tue night. Mainly moderate winds will prevail elsewhere. Moderate NE-E swell Will impact the Tropical N Atlantic waters through Mon before decaying. A cold front will approach the Yucatan Channel Tue night, then likely push into the NW Caribbean into mid week, while dissipating.

There is a wall of high speed, high level cloud coming across the Gulf at us. This will almost certainly clash with the easterly Caribbean winds and cause significant rain later tonight and tomorrow. There appears to be cold air behind that wall of cloud.

Looks as if today will be a mixture of sunshine and cloud, after the early fog has burnt off, there could be the odd rain shower.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 22°C 72°F Yesterday max. 29°C 84°F Yesterday Rain 3.0mm ( 0.1") Over Night Rain 1.0mm ( 0.04" )

The easterly Caribbean winds are already being deflected by the approaching weather from the NW
Not clear yet, when this might affect us, but some Caribbean clouds are getting heavier in some places.
