The Caribbean Sea

...EXCESSIVE RAINFALL IN CENTRAL AMERICA AND MEXICO... Tropical Depression Cristobal is part of a larger Central American Gyre (CAG) circulation. Heavy rainfall and severe flooding have been impacting parts of Central America and southern Mexico all of this week. Abundant tropical moisture in a southwesterly wind flow will continue to impact SE Mexico and northern parts of Central America. Additional rainfall amounts of 8 to 12 inches are forecast over southern Guatemala and coastal Chiapas, with 4 to 8 inches expected in Campeche, Quintana Roo, Yucatan, and El Salvador.

One part of the monsoon trough extends from northern Colombia near 08N74W, across the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea, through central Nicaragua, into central Honduras. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are located within about 180 nm offshore the coast of Central America

Otherwise, high pressure is dominating the Caribbean with scattered moderate showers across the basin moving quickly west in fresh to strong trades.

A broad area of low pressure, known as the Central American Gyre, will persist over northern Central America and southern Mexico for several days, producing widespread showers and thunderstorms in far NW Caribbean into the weekend. Strong to near gale force SE winds and building seas will continue in the Gulf of Honduras and east of Yucatan through Sat evening. Fresh to strong trade winds will continue in the central Caribbean through Sat night.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have wind and rain. The wind is from the South at 15 mph and gusting much higher. The Prediction is higher still and throughout the day. A South wind is an unusual direction causing boats and docks to be at risk.

The centre of the storm has moved rapidly northwards over night, as predicted, brining partly sunny skies to parts of Belize, but considerable rain for NE Yucatan. Presently, our surface winds are from the SW

Looks as if today will be a mixture of sunshine and cloud, with the possibility of some rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
