Belize Weather Forecast: November 15, 2020
The Caribbean Sea
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently upgraded Hurricane Iota and the associated very heavy rainfall, located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea.
Outside of Iota, overnight scatterometer data showed gentle to moderate N-NE flow in the western Caribbean, with moderate to fresh trades E of 70W and fresh to strong between 70W-75W to the E of Iota. Fresh to strong NE flow was blowing across the approach to the Windward Passage, but these winds have likely diminished to moderate to fresh in the past few hours. Seas are mainly 2-4 ft in the NW Caribbean, and 3-6 ft E of 70W.
A cold front will move into the NW Caribbean by mid-week, stalling from eastern Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras Thu. Fresh to strong winds will follow the front, with very hazardous conditions possible near the Yucatan Channel. The front will weaken high pressure NE of the area, while Iota is forecast to have moved inland over Central America. This will allow for trades across the SW, central and eastern Caribbean to diminish to mainly moderate.
