Belize Weather Forecast: July 10, 2021
The Caribbean Sea
Strong to near-gale force trade winds and 8 to 12 ft seas are noted across much of the central Caribbean, between high pressure north of the area and lower pressure over Colombia and western Venezuela. A scatterometer satellite pass showed another area of fresh to strong winds in the Gulf of Honduras. Earlier altimeter satellite data indicated seas were possibly reaching 8 ft over the Gulf of Honduras, although this may be subsiding. Moderate to fresh easterly winds are noted elsewhere, with 5 to 7 ft seas in the eastern Caribbean and 4 to 6 ft seas in the northwest Caribbean. A sharp upper trough reaches from over Haiti southward toward Panama. Associated divergent flow aloft along with convergent trade wind flow in the lower levels is supporting scattered showers and thunderstorms over the far southwest Caribbean from the coast of Colombia to southeast Nicaragua.
For the forecast, high pressure centered north of the area combined with the Colombian low will support strong to occasionally near gale force trade winds over the south-central Caribbean through mid week. Strong trades in the Gulf of Honduras will diminish Sun, but fresh trades will pulse nightly through the middle of next week.
