Marine Conditions:

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.

Saharan dust is reaching greater concentrations in the area of the Yucatán Peninsula. Sahara dust continues to move across the Atlantic and the Caribbean and that's why in part of the Caribbean, Central America, and part of Mexico, (southeast) the chances of rain have decreased. Sahara dust decreases the chances of rain and inhibits the formation of tropical cyclones as temperatures increase, although over the next days the passage of tropical waves will generate clouds and formation of electric storms in some parts. The picture is for Saturday, where the dust of the Sahara will arrive over part of northeast, eastern Mexico this weekend The presence of Sahara dust will remain over the Caribbean, Central America, and part of Mexico at least until mid next week, then will gradually decrease..

Saharan Dust is crucial to the balance of nature. Without it the whales of our ocean would die.

The eastern Caribbean winds control the area, but they do have some large patches of heavier clouds. Some have been causing rain in many parts of Belize this morning and still a few rain showers around but reducing.

Looks like today will be largely sunny, but with significant clouds and still the chance of a few rain showers around.

I love when I get to drive around the residential neighborhoods.
Enjoyed a fun ride home from San Pedro FM with Clive Welsh in Yamilett Cerpa's taxi.
