The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical wave in the Atlantic, and two in the Caribbean.

A ridge of high pressure extends across the Atlantic waters north of the Caribbean Sea. The pressure gradient between the ridge and low pressure over Colombia is supporting moderate to fresh winds over the Central Caribbean. Gentle to moderate winds are elsewhere. Seas are in the 4-5 ft range over the central Caribbean, and 2-4 ft elsewhere.

For the forecast, ridge N of the Caribbean Sea will support moderate to fresh trade winds across the central Caribbean, and gentle to moderate winds elsewhere. A trough of low pressure could develop over the northwestern Caribbean Sea during the middle part of this week. Environmental conditions could support some slow development of the system thereafter while it moves generally west-northwestward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and toward the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

We continue to closely observe the area of interest in the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea, and the chances of development for a tropical wave over the central Caribbean Sea remain with 20% development over 5 days while moving toward the northwest Caribbean Sea. This could have slow development as it nears the Yucatan Peninsula.

The other area of interest is in the eastern Atlantic from a tropical wave emerging from Africa in the next few hours. Cyclonic development chances are 20% for 5 days.

With a high probability of cyclonic development is the system in the Central Atlantic and the National Hurricane Center gives a 50% chance of development for 2 days and 70% for 5 days as it moves westward and then or west northwest. The global models support the development of this system and a tropical depression may form in the next few days, consensus models show possible trajectory outside the Caribbean.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the wind is from the East at 15 mph making the sea around our barrier reef choppy. Today's expected high temperature is 88 f.

There is a lot of activity out in the Caribbean, there is high level winds and cloud coming rapidly down over Cuba but there is also another mid-level moving up from Panama, resulting in a lot of cloud forming in the Caribbean and then being diverted towards Belize. Presently, there is just the typical easterly Caribbean winds and cloud, with just a few small rain showers.

Looks as if this morning will be mainly sunny, with significant clouds, but coud become heavier clouds and some rain by this afternoon or evening.

Last Night 25 °C 77 °F Yesterday max. 32 °C 89 °F Yesterday Rain 0.9 mm ( 0.04 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) rHumidity 92 % Pressure 1002 mBar ( 29.6" ) Very Low

It is the yellow circle cloud that could bring rain to Belize later today or tomorrow. But we need to watch the two orange circle areas, for possible storm development.

Present Condition: Widely scattered clouds on the mainland, a few clouds in San Pedro, should pass over soon. Moist conditions prevail over the area.

A few showers and isolated thunderstorms will occur mainly over inland areas this afternoon, southern areas tonight and tomorrow morning, and then spreading to central and northern areas by midday tomorrow. Otherwise, showers or thunderstorms will be isolated.

An extensive stream from the Caribbean, as well as a tropical wave, approaches our region. Both systems will cause a tropical disturbance. Rains are expected starting tomorrow in the peninsula.
