Valid: Friday, Aug. 3 until Monday, Aug. 6, 2012

An unstable easterly airflow will prevail over the NW Caribbean this weekend favoring some showers and thunderstorms over northern Central America and Belize. Tropical storm Ernesto is moving westward at 21 mph over the eastern Caribbean with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.

Conditions will remain unstable this weekend favouring a few showers and thunderstorms. Daytime heating will also add to the instability. Expect a mix of sunshine and cloudy spells through Monday. Daily rainfall accumulations will be in the range of 0.25-0.50 of-an-inch today Friday, through the weekend and Monday especially in the elevated areas of the interior. The feature of interest next week will be the movement of tropical storm Ernesto through the NW Caribbean. Ernesto is moving at a fairly fast clip of 21 mph at present, but it is forecast to slow down and strengthen as it moves further west through the central Caribbean this weekend. Hurricane models are projecting a WNW track for Ernesto as it comes farther west, with possible landfall over southern or central Yucatan by mid day on Wednesday of next week. All eyes will be on Ernesto this weekend and early next week. All interest in the central and western Caribbean should remain informed on the progress of tropical storm Ernesto.

From Diane.....

General Weather/Ernesto

Beautiful full moon last night. Super weather today.

We're watching Ernesto of course. Successive predictions have moved the storm track somewhat south, and seeing 4 of 6 computer models having an arrival in Belize does make one sit up and take notice. The good news - and it is very good indeed - is that strength is predicted to be in the low end of a Category One. That kind of storm doesn't phase most islanders any a'tall. We're blessed with a remarkable Barrier Reef that blocks waves & major surge, and with a sufficiently flat terrain that there is no fear of landslides or significant flooding.

Have heard from a couple of tourists (with arrival dates of next week) wondering what we think will happen but all I can say is to watch the reliable maps and websites - for sure don't watch the US based TV shows that are either all about the US coastline and/or are looking for ratings with rants and terrors. At this point I don't know of anybody around here who is particularly tense over this one. Curious, aware and prepared? Yes. Scared? Nope.

To all of our visitors - the tourism industry in Belize (and particularly in the cayes) is well-versed in safety and is dedicated to erring on the side of caution where your welfare is concerned. We'll take excellent care of you rain or shine. Come on down - the welcome mat has your name on it!

As for this particular resident - I'm planning a day of gardening & laundry interspersed with a few dips in the sea and some hammock-time (pulp fiction calls).

If anything more exciting happens I'll make another posting. For now all is very well indeed.
