Belize Weather Forecast: April 3, 2020
The Caribbean Sea
A weakening stationary front extends from the eastern tip of Cuba near 20N74W to 20N77W, then to near 21N83W. The front has disrupted the sub-tropical ridge north of the area, resulting in lighter than usual trade wind flow across the basin. A few showers are possible over the waters between the front and Jamaica. The latest overnight scatterometer data showed moderate to locally fresh winds in the southeastern and south-central Caribbean. Fresh winds are seen in the Gulf of Honduras. Light to gentle winds are noted elsewhere over the basin. Fairly dry conditions persist across the basin under moderate subsidence aloft as depicted in water vapor imagery. Regional radar imagery continues to reveal isolated showers in the northern Windward Islands, and south of Cuba near the stalled frontal boundary.
The front is likely to dissipate by late this afternoon. Light to moderate winds will gradually increase this weekend as high pressure begins to rebuild over the western Atlantic. Fresh winds are likely to begin pulsing each night through the period beginning Sat night over the Gulf of Honduras and especially along the coast of Colombia.
