The Caribbean Sea

A middle level to upper level trough extends from the Florida Keys, across NW Cuba, across the northern half of Guatemala, into the eastern Pacific Ocean about 150 nm to the south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec of southern Mexico.

The monsoon trough extends from 10N73W in northern Colombia, to 10N80W, and then across and beyond southern sections of Nicaragua, into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Scattered moderate to strong rainshowers are in northern Colombia and NW Venezuela from 07N to 11N between 72W and 75W. Scattered moderate to isolated strong rainshowers are from the coast of Colombia near 08N to 16N between 76W and 81W. Strong rainshowers are reaching the SW corner of Nicaragua and extreme NW Costa Rica. Broken to overcast multilayered clouds, and widely scattered moderate to isolated strong rainshowers, are covering the areas that extend from 18N to 22N between 63W and 81W, including: Jamaica, Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and surrounding islands and waters.

High pressure north of the area will maintain moderate to locally fresh trade winds across much of the basin through the week. Broad low pressure across Central America and the adjacent eastern Pacific Ocean will generate rainshowers and thunderstorms in much of the western Caribbean Sea through late week. A tropical wave, that is along 57W/58W, will move across the eastern Caribbean Sea today. The wave will move across the central Caribbean Sea from Tuesday night through Wednesday. The wave will be losing its identity after Wednesday.

On Ambergris Caye this morning it seems we got passed over by the rain. It's now sunny with the wind from the East at 8 mph. The sea is calm and today's expected high temperature is in the upper 80's.

Small clumpy Caribbean clouds coming in, causing many small rain showers. The high level cloud was over PG and to the south of us.

Looks like today will again, be a mixture of sun, clouds and small rain showers.

Rainy Season Soft Start

I am unofficially declaring the Rainy Season as having started today, at least as far as Belmopan is concerned.
We have had over 31mm of rain, actually 42mm > 1" and at least 6 of the 9 days have been rainy days, >1mm
I am calling it a Soft Start. Unlike 2013 which started suddenly with a 156mm >6" in just half an hour on the 27 May 2013
