The Caribbean Sea

The GFE model for 250 mb, and the current water vapor satellite imagery, show broad upper level anticyclonic wind flow across the Caribbean Sea. Comparatively drier air is apparent in water vapor imagery from 70W eastward. Precipitation: rainshowers are possible, in broken low level clouds, to the east of the line that extends from the NE corner of the Yucatan Peninsula to the Peninsula de la Guajira of N Colombia.

A western Atlantic Ocean ridge will maintain fresh trade winds in the central Caribbean Sea through Sunday. Gentle to moderate winds are expected elsewhere. Smoke, from agricultural fires in Central America, may cause haze and reduced visibilities in the Gulf of Honduras and to the east of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The SW high level thin cloud is covering the whole area, but having relatively little effect on our weather. The easterly Caribbean winds with some cloud in it is beginning to take over again. Typical land cloud is starting to develop in north and coastal areas of Belize now. There is still smoke in the air, but less than recently.

Looks as if today will be sunny, but with significant clouds, little or no rain expected.
