Lots of Rain in Forecast
Rain, Rain, Rain and more Rain. The forecast for this weekend in Belize – Guess? More Rain. As the weather system came to land, rain started to pour mainly on the northern part of the country. Here in San Pedro it started to rain roughly at about 9p.m. last night Thursday, October 13, 2011, and it hasn’t stopped since.
But the entire country is in for a wet weekend. A weather system practically sitting over Belize will produce rainfall over the country for the next three days at least. There is a threat of flooding and there is a slight increase in the possibility that the system can develop into a tropical system.
Residents of San Pedro woke up to a downpour which has cancelled classes at almost every school on the island. The cobblestone streets are fairing very well with all the water as the drains seem to be doing a good job up to now. What are flooded are streets and yards in most subdivisions around the island.
