The Caribbean Sea

A 1007 mb low pressure center is near 18N87W. A surface trough extends from the NE Yucatan Peninsula near 22N87W to the low center to the N coast of Honduras near 16N86W. This system just east of Belize is producing a large area of cloudiness and showers extending from the northwestern Caribbean Sea across Cuba and into the Florida peninsula. Little development is expected during the next couple of days due to strong upper-level winds and proximity to the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. However, gradual subtropical or tropical development is possible late this week while the system moves slowly into the central or eastern Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is possible across western Cuba, the Cayman Islands, and much of Florida during the next several days. For more information on the heavy rain threat, please see products issued by your local weather office. There is a very low possibility of tropical storm formation over the next 24 hours. There is a medium chance for tropical formation within 5 days.

From Belmopan...

Weather calmed down a bit, at present the straggly Caribbean clouds do not appear to be moving. There is high level from the NNW but only causing a small clash south of Belize. There are patchy clouds or fog in various parts of Belize and sunshine at present in much of central Belize.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, with white clouds developing this morning, could be some rain.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25C 78F Yesterday max. 34C 93F

The Cloud & rain picture. Strange cloud movement, sort of rotating, but today's wind is from the west.
