The Caribbean Sea
A mid-level low is triggering isolated moderate convection over
portions of the north-central Caribbean, north of 13.5N between
69W-80W. Refer to the Special Features section for more
information on the expected heavy rain across Hispaniola. Farther
south, scattered strong convection is occurring over western
Venezuela and northern Colombia. Some localized flooding from
continued heavy rain appears possible over those areas as well
during the next few days.
Fresh to locally strong trades are occurring over most of the
eastern and central Caribbean east of 73W, where seas are
currently 6-8 ft. Moderate trades are found between 73W-79W, and
mainly gentle winds are west of 79W, except for moderate in the
Gulf of Honduras. Seas are 4-6 ft in the SW Caribbean and 2-4 ft
in the NW basin.
For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure
located well E of Bermuda and low pressure over Colombia will
continue to support fresh to strong trades over the south-central
Caribbean through this morning. A broad trough is expected to
develop from coastal Colombia to E Cuba along 76W Mon through Tue
night. Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected across the
north-central and NE Caribbean tonight through Tue. Looking ahead,
a cold front will reach the Yucatan Channel by early Wed and
stall there through Thu night.
Some strange weather happening in our area now, not affecting Belize though.. .. Something pushing down from the north, messing up the Caribbean winds up near Cancun. Also the first serious large swellup happening in the Pacific just off El Salvador, many along the equator, but this is the first nearer to us. There is a fair bit of cloud out in the Caribbean near Jamaica. The weather is warming up towards May.
Today will be mainly sunny, but with a fair bit of cloud, similar to yesterday, no rain expected. No rain on the Radar.
Last Night 24 °C 75 °F Yesterday max. 33 °C 92 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0 ") Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
