The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front is draped across the NW Caribbean from central Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras. Scattered moderate convection is east of the front from 16N to 20N between 79W and 86W along with gentle to moderate easterly winds and moderate seas. Behind the front, fresh to strong N to NE winds are noted by overnight scatterometer data. Seas are up to 10 ft in the Yucatan Channel. Farther south, strong to near gale- force winds prevail in the south- central Caribbean and the NW Colombia offshore waters, in addition to the Gulf of Venezuela. Seas range 8-11 ft. In the eastern Caribbean, moderate to fresh trade winds prevail with seas to 8 ft.

For the forecast, surface ridging N of the region will extend to the northern Caribbean through the middle of next week. This will continue to provide moderate to fresh trade winds across the eastern, central and SW Caribbean. Pulsing strong to near-gale E winds will persist over NW Colombia offshore waters through Thu night. NE and E swell will continue to affect the tropical Atlantic and the eastern Caribbean waters through Wed. A stationary front extends from eastern Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras with fresh to strong winds and rough seas following it. The front will linger in this area through Tue. Fresh to strong winds and rough seas will prevail behind the front through Mon night, when conditions will slowly improve as the front weakens.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have a strong wind from the North currently at 18 mph. The sky is overcast and the expected high temperature for the day is only 74 f. The sea on the East side of our barrier reef is rough and getting rougher as the North wind increases.

Cloud, Cloud, cloud. Caribbean winds coming in from the east as normal, but then being deflected up northwards. Some traces of high level winds and cloud from the west. But there is cold air pushing down from the north, mainly, just off shore, and at the same time, there is mid-level warm clouds pushing up from the south, causing a lot of rain.

Today will be a cold day, the coldest this end of the year, and totally cloud covered, with pain patches coming in, some rain is heavy. The surface wind over Belmopan is a very slow easterly wind.

Last Night 20 °C 69 °F Yesterday max. 26 °C 78 °F Yesterday Rain 7.0 mm ( 0.28 " ) Over Night Rain 1.6 mm ( 0.06 " )
Humidity 82% Pressure 1018 mBar hPa
