Following the deluge of rain I blogged about earlier and then several beautiful, bright days, stormy weather returned with a vengeance yesterday and early this morning. There was actually more wind than rain overnight. I woke up in the wee hours and heard all kinds of banging around outside that I now realize was wind knocking stuff around. The San Pedro Weather station clocked a 36 mph gust overnight.

Thanks to a break in the rain, we were able to get out for a beach walk to survey the aftermath. Sammy (also known as Cannelo or "the Grand Caribe dog") came along with us. Paisley was taking her morning nap indoors so didn't venture out.

Fortunately, it wasn't too bad -- mostly a lot more palm fronds down than the day before. We moved a few of them out of the way as they were right in the beach trail where we (and many others) ride bikes and walk.

The Kama Lounge took a bit of a hit as their tent was pretty badly damaged.

Rain, rain just won't go away

Belize City experienced some turbulent weather early on Sunday morning. Strong winds accompanied by rain battered the old capital, leaving a trail of slight damage in its wake, particularly on the city's south side. The Belize Weather Bureau, which had forecast unstable weather for the weekend, explained that the frightening weather was caused by an upper level trough, which supported the vigorous thunderstorms. The Weather Bureau says that wind gusts of up to 35 knots were recorded. That level of wind speed is about tropical storm level. Rainfall during the thunderstorms measured about 1 inch to 1.5 inches in the Belize City and Ladyville areas. As we go into the work week, the upper level trough remains in place and will influence our weather for the next few days. An increase of rainfall is in the forecast for later in the week. So, keep the raingear handy.
