Belize Weather Forecast: August 1, 2021
The Caribbean Sea
There are two tropical waves in the Atlantic, and one in the Caribbean.
Thunderstorms continue across the far SW portions of the Gulf of Honduras. Additionally, thunderstorms are noted in the SW Caribbean S of 11N between 77W and 84W. Otherwise, pressure gradient between the Azores high to the north of the area and low pressure across Colombia is leading to fresh to strong trade winds in the central Caribbean with seas 8 to 10 ft. Moderate trades are noted elsewhere with seas 3 to 6 ft.
For the forecast, the Azores high extending a ridge to the northern Caribbean will continue to support fresh to strong trade winds in the central Caribbean through Mon morning. Fresh to locally strong winds can be expected across this region through the rest of the week. A tropical wave moving across the central basin will support scattered showers across the NW Caribbean through tonight.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
There are currently no organized tropical systems found across the basin at this time and none are expected to develop through at least early this week. Dry, dusty air continues to dominate the open Atlantic and no significant features support any development in the Gulf of Mexico or Caribbean.
While the entire basin remains quite tranquil for now, tropical waves coming off the African coast are starting to clear away some of the dry, dusty air and provide a boost of tropical moisture to the main developmental region of the basin. This trend is expected to continue into the middle of August, with the chances for tropical development increasing as a result during that time.
