This morning Spaceweather report "STRANGE SITUATION: In the middle of Solar Max, the sun has slipped into a state that resembles Solar Minimum. Sunspot numbers are low; the sun's X-ray and radio output are depressed; and NOAA forecasters estimate a scant 1% chance of solar flares during the next 24 hours."

There is a CCW upper air circulation centred at 16.4N 78.0W which is a region south of Jamaica. This is associated with a Tropical wave. However, there is very little moisture associated with this system. The water vapour all the way east to Africa is lower than normal for this time of year. The Saharan Air Layer is still a dominant factor in the Caribbean. There is an upper air Low at 6N 42W which I need to keep watching for the next few days.

A FAIRLY LARGE SAHARAN AIR LAYER WILL OVERSPREAD MOST OF THE CARIBBEAN AND SHOULD SUPPRESS DEEP CONVECTION FOR A FEW DAYS.

The rainfall in Belmopan early last night was measured to be 2.7 inches or 68 mm Belmopan appears to have received more rain than the surrounding areas. The tropical wave had passed well to the west by midnight. Today was mostly sunny with fair weather clouds. The Caribbean basin is mostly dry with the Saharan Air Layer covering most of the eastern region.
