Belize Weather Forecast: March 6, 2012

General Situation:
Ambergris Caye: Conditions this morning by Elbert just before or after this post!
Belize NMS: A cool and relatively moist north to northeasterly airflow prevails.
24-hour forecast: Cloudy and cool with a few showers and periods of rain mainly along the coast.
Winds: North - northeast at 10-20 knots with occasional higher gusts.
Marine Forecast: **A small craft caution remains in effect**. Winds: N-NE 10-20 kts with higher gusts; Seas: Moderate-rough; Waves: 5-7 ft; a few showers and periods of rain.
Sea Surface Temp (�F): 79
Outlook: Wed & Wed night: Cloudy at times with a few showers mainly along the coast on Wednesday becoming partly cloudy with isolated showers on Wednesday night.

Valid: Monday, March 5-12, 2012

The feature of interest this week will be a quasi-stationary frontal boundary over the NW Caribbean coupled with a moist, NE'ly airflow through Wednesday. Thereafter, the airflow will swing to the East and East Southeast favouring drier weather.

A cold front will move SE across the Gulf of Mexico as we move into the up- coming weekend, but the southern portion will weaken before it moves into the NW Caribbean.

The weather will be cloudy at first with showers and periods of rain, some heavy at times, especially over the hilly terrain and along the coast today, Tuesday and early Wednesday. Later on Tuesday and most of Wednesday the rains will be concentrated mostly along coastal areas and in the South. The rain will decrease later on Wednesday through Thursday. It will become generally fair on Friday through Monday, although a backing in the wind-flow on Sunday could lead to some showers developing mostly along the coast.

Daily rainfall accumulations over most districts on Monday through Wednesday of this week will range from 0.50-0.75 of-an-inch, with higher rates of 1.75-2.00 inches in the hills and southern districts. Daily rainfall totals will be decreasing after Wednesday, ranging from 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch on Thursday though Monday, particularly along coastal areas.

Indeed, 1.2" at SP Weather Stn. I imagine more to the north?...a line from Huston's Treasue of the Sierra Madre comes to mind with appropriate substitution as one sees fit

@ Diane.... no kidding!!! Nice cool weather for us, cisterns full.. but tourists are certainly not expecting this. Good days for a massage, a golf cart trip, or reading in a covered hammock!
