The Caribbean Sea

Convergent trade winds are coupling with divergent winds aloft to trigger scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms over Hispaniola and E Cuba. Otherwise, a ENE to ESE trade-wind pattern continues to dominate the entire basin. Fresh to strong trades with seas at 6 to 8 ft are present over the S central basin, N of the Colombian coast; and up to 10 ft across the Gulf of Honduras. Gentle to moderate trades and seas of 4 to 6 ft prevail for the rest of the Caribbean Sea.

As for the forecast, high pressure located N of the Caribbean Sea will keep a tight pressure gradient across the basin. This will support fresh to strong winds near the coast of Colombia, south of Hispaniola, in the Windward passage, and in the Gulf of Honduras mainly at night through Fri night. Moderate trades will prevail elsewhere. Moderate to fresh NE winds will remain over the Windward Passage diminishing into early next week.

The easterly Caribbean winds are back to normal, only a few small patches of cloud way out at sea. The met off ice think there could be some rain on Fri, particularly Sat and Sunday.

Looks as if today again, will be sunny after the few remaining fog patches have cleared up, then just a few clouds later, no rain expected. No rain on the Radar

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 21°C 70°F Yesterday max. 30°C 85°F Yesterday Rain 0mm ( 0") Over Night Rain 0mm ( 0" )
