Belize Weather Forecast: April 16, 2020
The Caribbean Sea
A ridge extends from the central Atlantic through central Cuba into the northwest Caribbean. This is supporting pulses of fresh to strong easterly winds off Colombia and Honduras, with seas 8 to 9 ft. Light and variable wind and 2 to 4 ft seas are noted over the northwest Caribbean, north of 17N to the coast of Cuba. Generally moderate E to SE winds and 5 to 7 ft seas persist elsewhere. Regional radar shows scattered showers moving across the Leeward and northern Windward Islands in the trade wind flow, with isolated showers over the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The pattern remains fairly dry elsewhere across the basin however. Analysis from yesterday indicated dense smoke from agricultural fires was still likely impacting visibility over the Gulf of Honduras.
High pressure north of the area will maintain pulses of fresh to strong winds near the coast of Colombia through Fri night. Expect fresh to strong winds in the Gulf of Honduras at night during the upcoming weekend.
