Belize Weather Forecast: June 10, 2021
The Caribbean Sea
There are several tropical waves affecting the basin. In addition to the convection mentioned in the tropical waves section, scattered showers and tstorms are seen in between Jamaica and eastern Cuba, and also along the coast of Nicaragua. Moderate trade winds prevail across the much of the basin, locally fresh in the south-central Caribbean. Gentle winds are in the NW Caribbean as well as the SW Caribbean, north of Panama. Seas are 4-6 ft across the eastern and central Caribbean, 2-4 ft in the NW Caribbean and 3-5 ft in the Gulf of Honduras.
Gentle to moderate trade winds will prevail today across the basin. Scattered showers and tstms are expected over the SW Caribbean through the remainder of this week in association with a broad trough of low pressure. Winds will increase to fresh in the south-central Caribbean Fri night as high pressure ridging becomes re-established along 25N over the west Atlantic. Fresh winds will then continue over the central Caribbean through Mon. A weak tropical wave will enter the SE Caribbean today, enhancing showers. The next tropical wave will reach the E Caribbean on Mon.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
There are currently no organized tropical features in the Atlantic basin, and none are expected to develop through at least the next couple of days. These quieter conditions may not last much longer.
A broad area of rotation in the midlevels, sometimes called a gyre, is developing near Central America and the nearby waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean. This gyre is causing an increase in shower and thunderstorm activity across Central America into southern Mexico. With wind shear remaining rather low across the western Caribbean Sea and the southwest Gulf of Mexico, it's still possible that an area of low pressure can develop under this gyre over the next few days. However, with the gyre developing a bit farther to the west, chances for tropical development in the Atlantic basin remain quite low.
All interests in Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico should be prepared for flooding downpours and some gusty winds through the weekend, regardless of whether or not a tropical system forms.
