General Caribbean Activity

A bigger picture of what is happening in our part of the world.

The ITCZ activity is happening from time to time down near Panama.

There are two lines of high level Pacific air. One from well west of us, that swings up over Mexico and curls down over the Yucatan and Belize often. The other develops in the Pacific just off Panama and also swings up in a curve, that then feeds cloud out over the Atlantic. Hurricane activity can develop out of these Pacific ITCZ active areas, sometimes even from early April through to July or so. Then the other Hurricane development area is just to the west of Africa and comes across the Atlantic towards us, generally more likely in July to October.

Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation Timeseries, 18562013

While the number of storms in the Atlantic has increased since 1995, there is no obvious global trend; the annual number of tropical cyclones worldwide remains about 87 10.

Sunday morning on Ambergris Caye we have a sunny day with a hint of a breeze from the East. The expected high is 88. Clouds like these tease the island this time of year while we hope for a little rain.

From Belmopan...

The high level cloud took a change in direction and sweeping up towards Florida, which has left Belize with fairly clear skies this morning. The ITCZ activity near Panama has also swung up and is now in the Caribbean nearer to us, but not going to effect our weather. Feels as if we are getting slightly cooler air for a while.

Today will have white puffy clouds develop this morning then reduce this afternoon, I am not expecting any rain today.

Temperatures in Belmopan:
Today is probably going to be Similar, to yesterday : Sat, max. 33C 92F Last night min. 23C 74F ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
