WEEKEND WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR BELIZE
Valid: Friday-Tuesday, April 13 - 17, 2012

A broad high pressure system will move into the SW Atlantic this weekend and will keep a stable and seasonally dry South-easterly airflow prevailing across Belize this weekend and on Monday. A convergence zone on the tail end of an old frontal system will drift northward over Central America on Monday and Tuesday, and will likely induce some showers and thunderstorms but mostly over southern Belize on Tuesday.

We can expect the fair and seasonally dry weather to persist this weekend with only brief, isolated showers developing mostly along the coast in the morning, and inland during the afternoon hours. Heavier showers and thunderstorms are likely to increase over the Toledo District and southern coastal waters later on Monday and Tuesday.

Daily rainfall totals will be minimal, ranging 0.01-0.10 of-an-inch across the nation this weekend. In the South however, showers and thunderstorms are likely to increase on Monday afternoon and evening and persisting through Tuesday morning. Daily rainfall totals for this period will be in the range of 0.25-0.50 of-inch in the South.

No threat of flash flood expected this weekend!

On Ambergris Caye this morning the wind has kicked up and the sea state is choppy, but we have a clear and sunny sky.
The expected high is 86f.

High tide was around 7 this am going out after that high until low around 1pm creating currents at the cuts like Hol Chan with the strong winds adding a little boost by blowing waves over the reef that then turn around and go out the cuts with the outgoing tide.
The lower end of the outgoing cycle is between 12:00 and 1:pm and this will make that time a time to avoid swimming and diving around the cuts.
The community is on a schedule to visit the Marine Reserve at 9am and 2pm. The 2 pm trip should be much nicer than the 9am trip as far as strong currents are concerned .

Elbert - that is so smart - I wish all snorkelers were given this kind of information and then allowed to choose their time to dive.
