...The Caribbean Sea...

A pair of scatterometer passes from 03 UTC confirmed a large area of fresh to strong trade winds off Colombia, and a smaller area of strong winds south of the Bay Islands off central Honduras. Seas are reaching 8 ft off Colombia, but are generally 4 to 6 ft in the eastern and central Caribbean and tropical north Atlantic, and 2 to 4 ft in the northwest Caribbean. No significant convection is noted.

Building high pressure north of the region will support fresh to locally strong trades across the south central Caribbean the next several days, except increasing to near gale force along the northwest coast of Colombia during the overnight hours. A cold front will pass through the Yucatan Basin by early Wed, then drift south and stall from the Windward Passage to central Honduras Fri, followed by fresh northerly flow and seas building to 7 ft.

Undersea volcano Kick em Jenny, north of Grenada near 12.18N 61.38W, is in a state of unrest. The government of Grenada advises mariners to observe a 5 km or 3.1 nm exclusion zone around Kick em Jenny. Please see for additional information.

From Belmopan...

Caribbean cloud moving in from the ESE fast, but there is some mid-level cloud and a fair amount of fast high-level cloud. But none of this is causing rain.

Looks like today will be a sunny day, with significant cloud, no rain expected.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
