The Caribbean Sea

Two tropical waves are traversing the Caribbean Sea. See the Tropical Waves section above for details. An upper level trough extends to Puerto Rico and the Leeward Islands with a mid- upper level ridge over the central and eastern Caribbean. The GOES-16 Saharan Air Layer tracking product shows that a plume of African dust has reached the western and central Caribbean Sea. Strong subsidence is keeping convection at a minimum. Most of the activity in the Caribbean is associated with the tropical wave in addition to thunderstorms adjacent to the monsoon trough moving off the coasts of Panama and Costa Rica, S of 10N between 76W- 82W. There are also isolated showers approaching Puerto Rico.

Fresh to strong winds continue across the central Caribbean. Moderate to fresh trades are seen in the eastern basin, with gentle to moderate trades in the northern Caribbean.

The pressure gradient between Bermuda high pressure and the Colombian low will support nocturnal pulsing of minimal gale force winds off the coasts of Colombia and Venezuela until around dawn today, then again Friday night and Saturday night. Strong winds are expected to pulse over the Gulf of Honduras each night through Sunday night. A tropical wave near 65W will produce scattered thunderstorms with gusty winds as it moves W across the central and western Caribbean through Saturday. Elsewhere, generally moderate to fresh trades will prevail through the weekend and into early next week.

On Ambergris Caye today we have clear sky and sunshine with an expected high temperature of 88 f.
It's windy this morning. The East wind at 21 mph is making the sea around the barrier reef rough.
Advisories: *Small Craft Caution remains in effect for gusty winds and occasionally rough seas.*

The ITCZ activity getting nearer again, for a late second start to the rainy season. Presently the easterly Caribbean winds have a fair bit of cloud patches in it, which may well cause isolated rain showers later this morning. Significant cloud already building up along the coastal areas.

Looks as if today will be another hot and sticky day, with high humidity and some rain showers. No rain currently on the radar.
