Belize Weather Forecast: March 23, 2020
The Caribbean Sea
There is a gale warning for off the coast of Colombia. A mid to upper-level trough axis extends across the eastern Caribbean this morning, with scattered showers and thunderstorms noted in radar imagery downstream of the trough over Puerto Rico, USVI, and the NE Caribbean offshore waters. Overnight scatterometer data revealed a large area of fresh to strong winds across the south-central Caribbean. Altimeter data from 23/0600 UTC showed 7-10 ft seas in this region. Fresh to strong winds are also occurring through the Windward and Mona passages, as well as south of Hispaniola. Fairly benign marine conditions prevail across the NW Caribbean under the influence of deep-layer ridging.
A high pressure ridge across the western Atlantic will maintain
fresh to strong winds over the south-central Caribbean through the
week. Gale force winds off the coast of Colombia early this
morning will diminish today, then pulse to gale force again
tonight. Fresh to strong winds will continue through the Windward
Passage and south of Hispaniola through tonight, then diminish
slightly through midweek. Short-period NE swell across the waters
east of the Leeward Islands will subside Tue into Tue night. Fresh
to locally strong winds will pulse at night in the Gulf of Honduras
Tue night through Fri night.
