WEEKLY WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR BELIZE
Valid: Friday-Tuesday, April 17 – April 23, 2012

A trough of low pressure over western Yucatan ahead of a weak cold front in the central and SW Gulf of Mexico is inducing some instability over the Yucatan Peninsula, northern Guatemala and Belize. However, this activity will be short-lived as the southern portion of the cold front will weaken and the northern portion will move ENE to towards Florida over the next 24-36 hours.

The GFS model is projecting the movement of a vigorous low and associated cold front across the Texas and Louisiana Gulf coast and the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday and Sunday. This vigorous late-season frontal boundary will likely induce outbreaks of thunderstorms over Belize starting on Saturday and continuing on Sunday, when the front is expected to cross Yucatan and Belize. Conditions will improve rapidly on Monday and Tuesday as the system moves away from Belize.

Daily rainfall accumulations will be in the range of 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch over north-western and western areas on Monday and Tuesday of this week, with little rainfall elsewhere. Dry, hot conditions will continue countrywide on Tuesday through Friday of this week. Saturday should see some isolated thunderstorms beginning to develop, with increasing thunderstorm activity expected on Sunday, but diminishing later on Monday through Tuesday. Daily rainfall rates in the order of 0.75-1.00 inches are expected in the thundery weather on Saturday, Sunday and early Monday, but decreasing later on Monday through Tuesday over all areas of the nation.

Hope it doesn't turn into "Rainbergris Caye" like it did 2 years ago. That was wicked.

But, I am sure you can use the rain...

Of course it rained! We just spent the last few days taking the roof off of the house. Had it not rained today we would be pouring a cement ceiling- floor tomorrow.
I see that Amanda's meter measures only 3\4 of an inch but we dumped many many gallons off of the tarps and they got down when the storm was half over. It hurt to see all that delicious rain water go down the drain. (my cistern was still full)
