The Caribbean Sea

A rather broad deep layer trough is over the western Caribbean west of 80W. At the surface, a trough is along 81W north of 13N to across central Cuba and to the Straits of Florida near 24N81W. Satellite imagery shows numerous moderate to strong convection east of the surface trough to 74W and from 13N to 16N. Overnight ASCAT data over this area indicated strong to near gale-force winds with this convection. Broken to overcast multilayer clouds, with embedded scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are over rest of central Caribbean north of 13N between 70W-74W. The ASCAT data indicated moderate to fresh trades elsewhere east of 79W, and gentle trades west of 79W.

Wave heights are in the 7-9 ft range are in the south-central Caribbean, especially within the area of the numerous moderate to strong convection. Wave heights elsewhere are 6-8 ft north of 15N between 72W-80W, 5-7 ft elsewhere east of 72W, 3-6 ft west of 80W except for lower wave heights of 2-4 ft in the Gulf of Honduras, N of 18N west of 85W and also south of 11N west 80W.

For the forecast, Atlantic high pressure building westward north of the Caribbean Sea will support fresh to strong trades across the eastern and central Caribbean through Sun night. Thereafter, mainly fresh trade winds are expected in the Colombia basin and in the Gulf of Venezuela through Wed. A tropical wave, currently located east of the forecast waters near 50W is forecast to approach the Windward Islands early on Mon, and move across the eastern Caribbean from Mon and through Tue. Moisture accompanying with this wave is expected to increase the chances for showers in the eastern Caribbean through at least Tue night.

Caye Caulker:

A lot of uncertainty is being generated in the face of the possible cyclonic development in the Caribbean in the coming days. A single model is generating the possibility of cyclonic development, however there is no consensus in other models so the margin of error is large. There is a low percentage of probability formation (seen in the Red Circle) from here to May 17. The hurricane season in the Northeast Pacific begins Sunday the 15th of May and in the Atlantic on June 1.

Strange weather, the bubble of cooler air sitting over the whole area, is holding the Caribbean winds back, very little air movement and only tiny traces of any high level winds. Clouds building over land due to the sun heating the ground and causing convection air to rise, and in doing so cools and some condensation occurs at about 2000 - 3000 ft altitude producing the clouds.

Looks as if it will remain a sun cloud day, fairly warm again, no rain expected, but could develop into thunder clouds over the west mountains late this afternoon. No rain on the Radar.

Last Night 24 °C 75 °F Yesterday max. 35 °C 94 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
