The monsoon trough extends from northern Colombia near 11N73W, across Panama, beyond NW Costa Rica, and into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Precipitation previously associated with this trough has diminished early this morning.

Strong east winds will prevail across the eastern, central and southwest Caribbean as strong high pressure north of the area remains in place through the weekend. A pulse of easterly gales is expected tonight offshore Colombia. Winds will decrease to mainly moderate to locally fresh early on Mon, except strong winds will pulse nightly off the N coast of Colombia trough Wed night. Otherwise, fresh to strong SE winds in the NW Caribbean will diminish this morning.

Despite being overcast in central Belize this morning, there is a fair amount of sunshine in other parts. The cool air from the north has not got any nearer, the Caribbean winds do have more cloud in them and from the east, not much trace of high level cloud at present, but looks a bit changeable.

Looks as if today will be a mixture of sun and cloud, a small chance of the odd rain shower.

This shows the high pressure ridge between the cold air coming down from near California, over Texas and the Gulf, and clashing with the easterly Caribbean winds at about 3,000 metres.
