The Caribbean Sea

An upper level low is centered over W Cuba near 22N84W. Scattered showers are over the Straits of Florida, the Yucatan Channel, and W Cuba. Broad upper level ridging is over the central and eastern Caribbean with westerly flow.

The tropical wave along 76W is the primary weather producer in the Caribbean Sea. See above. Furthermore, the eastern extent of the E Pacific monsoon trough is producing widely scattered moderate convection over Costa Rica, Panama, and N Colombia.

Moderate to fresh winds will persist in the central and eastern sections of the Caribbean Sea through Tuesday morning. Gentle to moderate winds will dominate the entire basin during the remainder of the period. A surface low pressure center is forecast to develop off the coast of Nicaragua on Thursday, and it is expected to track NNE to the NW corner of the Caribbean Sea next weekend.

From Belmopan...

Generally good weather at present. There were some rain showers over night and still a few due to the chunky Caribbean easterly clouds, high level clouds clashing just off the southern coast causing more. But there are a lot of serious ITCZ rain areas out in the Caribbean, mainly due to high level clouds going from the SW over Honduras and Nicaragua, this may work its way nearer to us during this week.

Looks like today will have more sunshine than recently, but still the chance of some rain showers.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 24C 74F Yesterday max. 32C 89F

Drove home from town with billowy high-altitude clouds to the east and to the west, with blue skies above. Shortly thereafter the clouds moved in and now it's dark and rainy again. We should take bets on how soon it will return to clear and beautiful. I think it will be soon.
