The Caribbean Sea

An upper level trough extends from the Yucatan Channel to Nicaragua. Widely scattered to scattered moderate and isolated strong rainshowers are from 14N southward from 74W westward. Broken to overcast multilayered clouds and possible precipitation are being stretched toward the northeast by the upper level wind flow. Isolated moderate to locally strong rainshowers are in Colombia from 04N northward.

Broad upper level cyclonic wind flow also covers the NW corner of the Caribbean Sea and parts of Central America. Warming cloud top temperatures and possibly lingering rainshowers cover the inland areas from the eastern parts of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec of southern Mexico to Honduras and Nicaragua.

An upper level ridge extends from NE Venezuela, northwestward to the NW corner of Venezuela. Upper level anticyclonic wind flow covers the Caribbean Sea from 68W eastward.

24-hour rainfall totals that are listed for the period that ended at 11/0000 UTC...according to the PAN AMERICAN TEMPERATURE AND PRECIPITATION TABLES...MIATPTPAN/SXCA01 KNHC...are 0.54 in Guadeloupe, and 0.01 in Tegucigalpa in Honduras.

Fresh to strong winds will pulse in the Gulf of Honduras each night through Wednesday. Fresh easterly winds will persist across the south central Caribbean Sea through the weekend. The wind speeds will increase early next week, as the pressure gradient tightens in response to building high pressure in the central Atlantic Ocean. Smoke from ongoing agricultural fires in Central America may create hazy skies and reduced visibilities north of Honduras for the next several days.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the sky is clear and the day sunny. Our windy spell continues with the Easterner at 17 mph creating a rough sea state around our barrier reef. The expected high temperature for today is in the upper 80's.

Somewhat confused weather in our area at present, the easterly Caribbean winds are over northern Belize with significant cloud, there are traces of high level cloud from the west, but several different directions of cloud over or near southern Belize, causing a fair amount of cloud cover, but no rain.

Looks like today will be mainly cloudy, also with smoke haze and occasional weak sun.
