The Caribbean Sea

Persistent high pressure north of the area is supporting fresh to strong trade winds across the south-central Caribbean with seas of 8 ft. Moderate to locally fresh trades are noted elsewhere. Expect increasing winds and building seas across the waters E of the Lesser Antilles first, then across the eastern Caribbean Thu night into Fri due to the pressure gradient between the ridge to the north and a developing surface trough moving across the Bahamas. This weather pattern will keep relatively low winds of 15 to 20 kt off the coast of Colombia, and 10 to 15 kt elsewhere over the western Caribbean. Moisture will remain high across east and central Cuba tonight and Thu while drifting eastward across Hispaniola, keeping the likelihood of scattered to numerous showers and tstms. This will be associated with a cold core mid /upper-level low drifting southward from the Bahamas across eastern and central Cuba to the north central Caribbean. This unstable weather pattern could persist the remainder of the work- week over the eastern half of Cuba and parts of Hispaniola as the low meanders over the same area. Lightning data currently indicate very active weather in the form of scattered to numerous tstms over eastern Cuba, particularly E of Camaguey.

From Belmopan...

Chunky easterly Caribbean clouds patches coming in at present, mainly towards central and north Belize. Lines of cloud just beginning to form along the coast line. Fog in central Belize, high humidity and a warm night. There is some thin high level clouds from the west, not yet causing any clashing. No rain yet, but there could be patches of rain later, at any time during the day.

Looks like today is again going to be a misture of sun and significant clouds, with a chance of the odd rain shower.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 24C 75F Yesterday max. 32C 89F

The Cloud and rain picture. Most rain showers are coming into central Belize, so this is what I show now.
