Belize Weather Forecast: September 17, 2018
The Caribbean Sea
A surface trough extends across the central Caribbean from just west of Haiti to a 1009 mb low near 17.5N76W, and southeastward to near 13N74W. These features and related convection denote a broad area of low pressure associated with former tropical cyclone Isaac. Abundant moisture and atmospheric instability, that is Father enhanced by the tail-end of a central Atlantic deep layer trough that extends to Haiti and to near 17N85W, remains entrenched across the central Caribbean and much of the eastern Caribbean. This is resulting in scattered moderate to strong convection from 16N to 18N between 75W and 76W, including the eastern portion of Jamaica. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are elsewhere between 65W and 80W, while isolated showers and thunderstorms are east of 65W. The broad area low pressure remains disorganized. Only slow development will be possible during the next day or so due to proximity to dry air and land interaction with Jamaica. By Wed, environmental conditions are forecast to become less conducive for re-development to occur. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains and gusty winds will be possible over portions of Hispaniola, Jamaica, and eastern Cuba during the next couple of days while the system moves west-northwestward to westward toward the northwestern Caribbean Sea. Gentle trades are west of the trough and low, while gentle to moderate trades are elsewhere east of the trough. The central Atlantic tropical wave will move across the tropical waters east of the Windward Islands Tue and Tue night, and through the east Caribbean on Wed and Thu accompanied by fresh to strong trades and building seas.
