Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Abundant rich tropical moisture covers the western section of the Caribbean. This moisture is being transported from the eastern Pacific Ocean via a rather strong upper subtropical jet stream branch that stretches eastward to far northwestern Caribbean. Resultant atmospheric instability in this part of the basin is resulting scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly from 16N to 19N west of 83W, and south of 16N west of 81W to just inland Nicaragua and northern Costa Rica. Similar convection is just inland and along the coast of northwestern Colombia.

Fairly tranquil weather conditions are over the rest of the Caribbean Sea, with the exception of a pocket of scattered showers and thunderstorms that is located from along the southwest part of Haiti, south to 15N and between 71W-74W. The pressure gradient between subtropical high pressure and lower pressure over Colombia is producing fresh to strong trades across the central Caribbean and Gulf of Honduras, with the strongest winds occurring offshore Colombia and the Gulf of Venezuela. Moderate to locally fresh trades are noted in the eastern Caribbean, while lighter winds are present over the northwestern southwestern Caribbean as detected by overnight ASCAT data. Seas are 5-8 ft in the central part of the sea, except for slighter higher seas of 6-9 ft in the Colombian basin and 3-5 ft elsewhere, except for 4-6 ft seas south of 15N between 64W-68W.

For the forecast, the subtropical ridge north of the area will support fresh to strong winds and seas to 8 ft off the coasts of Colombia and Venezuela into mid-week. Moderate to fresh trades will prevail across much of the remainder of the Caribbean into mid- week. A large area of low pressure may form in the far NW Caribbean late this week.

On this Monday morning, the NHC Atlantic Tropical Weather Outlook is highlighting a large and complex area of low pressure that is expected to develop across Central America, the Yucatan Peninsula, and the southwest Gulf of Mexico in a few days, partially related to the remnants of Hurricane Agatha from the eastern Pacific. Some gradual development is possible within this system in the far southwest Gulf of Mexico around mid-week or in the northwest Caribbean by the latter part of this week as it drifts eastward or northeastward. It has a near zero chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a medium (40 percent) chance during the next five days. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains will be possible across southern Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala, and Belize through the week.

We are still right in the middle of all this ITCZ activity but it is mainly working around us, a lot of rain up north and going away from Belize at present.

Looks as if today will be very variable bright sunshine for some, mainly in the south and some central areas, but there can be some heavy cloud from time to time and a high chance of rain anywhere later.

Last Night 25 °C 77 °F Yesterday max. 33 °C 91 °F Yesterday Rain 3.6 mm ( 0.1 " ) Over Night Rain 0.8 mm ( 0 " )

The National Hurricane Center is expecting a large and complex area of low pressure to develop near the Yucatan Peninsula and the northwestern Caribbean Sea in a few days, partially related to the remnants of Hurricane Agatha from the eastern Pacific. This system is forecast to move slowly eastward or northeastward and gradual development is possible by the latter part of this week. It has a near zero chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a moderate (40 percent) chance during the next five days. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is likely across portions of southern Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala, and Belize through the week.

Looks as if the rain up in Mexico is coming back our way overnight.
