We are getting back into more typical weather. But that collection of cloud that went up the gulf a week or more ago and met Atlantic weather spun up last week is probably going to reach Hurricane speeds just above the Bahamas, they have called it Hurricane Joaquin but it is not yet a Hurricane, which is just wandering around the same spot, but expected to move northwards later. The Caribbean winds are just starting to get back to normal, presently very light and SSE. We still have higher winds and cloud from the North over Belize. These two, together might cause some rain showers, mainly down south, near the coast.
I expect the cloud this morning to thin later, brining some sunshine, but could also have some rain showers, particularly down south.

The following day, a trough of low pressure developed over the Southwest Caribbean and moved over Belize. This further supported showers and thunderstorms across the country, but more so over coastal areas. This continued through to the twenty-sixth. Showers moved from south to north of the country; the path of the trough. On the twenty-sixth, the trough moved into the Gulf of Mexico, carrying much of the moisture from over Belize.
