Belize NMS: Present Condition: Cloudy skies on the mainland, partly cloudy in San Pedro. Moist conditions prevail over the area. A gradual decrease in moisture is expected during the next 24 hours.
Advisories: A small craft caution remains in effect for gusty winds and locally rough seas near heavy showers.
24-hour forecast: Continuing mostly cloudy skies. A few showers and periods of rain will continue mainly offshore and over central areas this morning.

The Caribbean Sea

A shear line extends from east-central Cuba across Grand Cayman Island to the Gulf of Honduras. Fresh to strong NE winds are noted north of the shear line, with 5 to 8 ft seas. The strongest winds are in the lee of Cuba. High pressure north of the area off the Carolinas is also supporting strong winds off Colombia, with moderate to fresh winds elsewhere. Fresh NE winds are impacting the Windward Passage. Seas are 5 to 7 ft south of the shear line. Recent observations also show fresh to strong NE to E winds across the far northeast Caribbean. A few showers and thunderstorms are active along the shear line over the Gulf of Honduras, but no significant convection is evident elsewhere.

For the forecast, the stationary front/shearline extending from east-central Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras is dissipating. High pressure building eastward N of the area will cause increasing trade winds and building seas for the east and central Caribbean through mid week. Looking ahead, a cold front moving across the Gulf of Mexico will stall and dissipate near the Yucatan Channel Wed evening. Expect fresh to strong E to SE winds off Honduras by late Thu. Large trade-wind swell will persist east of the Lesser Antilles through late Thu.

The easterly Caribbean winds are firmly in control now, but due to the cool air around, has been dropping rain, mainly light rain almost continually in many parts, helped by a stagnant bit of high level cloud, partly caused by our mountains.

Light rain and heavy clouds will persist for quite some time, but probably thinning by this afternoon.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 22 °C 71 °F Yesterday max. 25 °C 77 °F Yesterday Rain 38 mm ( 1.5 ") Over Night Rain 24 mm ( 1.0 " )
