Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Fresh to strong easterly trade winds are prevalent across most of the Caribbean Sea waters. The strongest winds are found in the south-central Caribbean and in the Gulf of Honduras. Outside of the Gale warning area, seas in these waters are 6-10 ft. Overnight ASCAT data indicates gentle to moderate E to SE winds in the lee of Cuba, except for light winds just offshore its central and eastern coast. Gentle to moderate NE to E winds are just offshore Costa Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Seas over these waters are 4-6 ft.

For the forecast, a high pressure ridge between the Bahamas and Bermuda will help maintain fresh to strong trades across the central Caribbean for the next several days. Winds will pulse to gale-force off the coast of Colombia each evening and at night and ending in the early mornings through Sat night. The coverage area of the fresh to strong trades is expected to diminish beginning late Sat night as the high pressure weakens. Fresh to strong NE to E winds will also occur in the Windward Passage and lee of Cuba through Sun night. Strong to near gale E to SE winds in the Gulf of Honduras will continue the next several days. Looking ahead, large long- period N swell may begin impacting the tropical N Atlantic zones starting on Sun night.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the 20+ mph wind from the East is still with us creating another day of rough sea around our barrier reef. I hope this is our annual March blow come early and it will spare us when the island is full of Spring Breakers. Today's high temperature is in the upper 80's.

There is a strong easterly Caribbean wind this morning, but it is curving up into the Gulf, and indication that another cool air bubble is moving into the Gulf, but that is not obvious yet. Very little cloud around, but there is a line of cloud out over the sea, but not causing rain.

Looks as if today will be very sunny and hot, some white clouds developing later, no rain expected.

Today the wind came strong wetting everyone on it's path, when the waves splashed on the seawall. At the same same time, the wind was whistling on my ears while taking my at the Corozal Town bridge. Photo by Belize Scoop Blogger
