From Diane on
Wet and wild
It's been a long time since I posted weather from Ambergris Caye. With a broken arm, a crashed computer and basically great weather this season, I have neglected reporting from beautiful Belize. Today is a bit different, and worth a brief post.
Big blob of weather came together over the sea east of us and turned into an event. Winds are strong from the southeast, seas are angry inside the reef. Rains are constant, but I can see out to the reef so it's not quite a whiteout at this moment.
The intrepid Coastal Express's 5:30 run just passed, a bit late but braving the weather for those souls who need to get to and from work up the island.
Would expect some sunken boats at docks this morning. Even a good auto-bilge might not keep up with this storm.
I also expect the saragassum was swept away elsewhere .... That could be nice.
Forecasters say this system will continue to move over land today and tomorrow and perhaps emerge in the Bay of Campeche where it could give birth to an official tropical storm.
