A stationary front passes through 22N70W in the Atlantic Ocean, cutting across Cuba, to 25N86W in the SE Gulf of Mexico. Precipitation: isolated moderate to locally strong is from 18N to the stationary front between 60W and Hispaniola.

The monsoon trough is along 10N/12N, from 73W in northern Colombia beyond Costa Rica, into the eastern Pacific Ocean. The GFS model for 250 mb, and the water vapor satellite imagery, show a trough that extends from the south central Caribbean Sea, toward the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea and central Panama.

Northerly swell previously generated by Hurricane Teddy and an early season cold front in the western Atlantic will continue through Atlantic waters and Caribbean passages through this evening. Mainly moderate trade winds will dominate the basin through the forecast period, with the exception of fresh, possibly locally strong, winds near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela.

The Weather Prediction Center is issuing advisories on Post-Tropical Cyclone Beta, centered inland over Mississippi.

Tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 5 days.

A relatively quiet period coming to the Atlantic

Jeff Masters

None of the top three models for forecasting tropical cyclone genesis are predicting formation of any new Atlantic tropical cyclones over the coming five days. As IBM meteorologist Michael Ventrice tweeted on Sunday, the Atlantic this week is experiencing passage of an atmospheric disturbance called a convectively suppressed Kelvin wave, which creates dry, sinking air unfavorable for tropical storm formation.

Consider that respite a break after seeing 10 named storms form this month an all-time record for the month of September.

The next name on the Atlantic list of storms is Gamma. Lets hope we dont see it until October.

That high level and mid-level Caribbean cloud I was mentioning a couple of days ago, is now over northern Belize. May have caused over night rain to a number of places in the north and possibly more to come this morning, over the next few hours. Presently, there is no Caribbean winds as such, just a slow drift up from the south.

Looks as if it will be a cloudy day, with some rain, some heavy, for the north, but nearly clear skies for the south, most of Cayo and the rest of the south. Clouds building there, later this morning, probably no rain in the south today.
