The Caribbean Sea

An upper-level trough axis stretches from western Cuba to northeastern Honduras, and a broad upper level anticyclone is centered over the central Caribbean near 15N73W. Scattered moderate isolated strong convection is noted southwest of the upper anticyclone, roughly south of 14N and west of 73W.

A relatively weak pressure gradient north of the area in the western Atlantic Ocean will maintain moderate to locally fresh trade winds across most of the region through Sun. High pressure in the eastern Gulf of Mexico will strengthen E to SE winds and increase seas over the NW Caribbean Sun night and Mon.

From Belmopan...

There is a lot of patchy, chunky easterly Caribbean cloud co9ming in, now well over the country. It is also clashing in a few places with high level from the NW so there are scattered showers in many parts of Belize this morning, not a lot of rain, but many small scattered showers. That hurricane FLORENCE presently is going through a gear change and is only Storm force winds, I suspect it is changing its centre of rotation, but it is expected to pick up again then head for the east coast of the USA, anywhere from north Florida up to Virginia, now missing Bermuda. It does not pose any threat to Belize. There are two other areas in the Atlantic which we will have to watch next week. There are three storms in the Pacific, and I am seeing cloud and a large swellup formation along the Mexico/Guatamala coast that could develop, its high level spin-off is not quite reaching Belize.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with significant clouds, some heavy, with the chance of the odd rain shower.

The Cloud and rain picture. Rain forming anywhere as a result of high level clashing with the Caribbean clouds.

This is fairly typical of this time of the year, but shows how the Caribbean winds, push in over Belize into Mexico & Guatamala, where they often end up in swellups and high level winds then strip the tops off.
