The Caribbean Sea

A slowly-moving cold front extends from central Hispaniola near 18N72W to 15N77W to the coast of Nicaragua near 12N84W. Cloudiness and scattered showers are noted along and west of the front. Scattered light showers are moving across the Lesser Antilles westward into Puerto Rico. Scatterometer data depicts near gale force winds off the south- central coast of Cuba, with strong northeasterly winds behind the cold front with moderate winds ahead of the boundary. Strong winds are also noted in the Windward Passage. Strong to near gale force winds are north of Colombia with strong winds in the central Caribbean. Light to gentle winds are in the eastern basin. Seas are up to 10 ft behind the cold front in the NW Caribbean, with 3 to 6 ft in the eastern and central basin.

The cold front will stall and dissipate from the Hispaniola to Costa Rica by Sun. Fresh to strong N to NE winds will prevail NW of the front through Sun, including the Windward Passage. Strong winds will continue along the coast of Colombia through mid-week.

There is a lot of puffy cloud areas in the Caribbean, resulting from the cool air from the north, but now, all that is steadily moving in to Belize from the east. So there are some parts of Belize with good sunshine and other parts under heavy cloud, with only just a few small areas of any light rain.

Looks like it will be a mixed day, ranging from heavy cloud to sunshine, only a small chance of some rain.

To give a better understanding of what is happening around us, this might help to explain some of it.

But you really need to see the 3-D act ( I have not found these very accurate, but useful as an indicator only. )

These are the low level winds 850 hPa ~1,500 m, planetary boundary, low above surface winds

And these are the high level winds 500 hPa ~5,000 m, vorticity a little below the Jet stream
