Here is the Weekly Outlook.

Have a fine week and best wishes for an uneventful October. Indications are that the Northern Hemisphere winter is starting early which is good news.

Unfortunately, we are not out of the woods as yet. Remain vigilant!

Have splendid week with many blessings!


An upper to mid level circulation (Low) in the NW Caribbean is generating scattered, deep convection around and south of Jamaica, extending NNW over western Cuba as can be observed from the latest GOES IR image (Figure 1). The mid to upper low will drift NW during the next 24 to 48 hours pulling the convection over Yucatan and Belize by Tuesday, as it begins to interact with an upper level trough associated with a cold front zone in the central and southern Gulf of Mexico. The GFS model is projecting an increase in rainfall over Belize due to the interaction of these features on Tuesday through early Thursday. Thereafter, the activity will weaken and dissipate.

The model projections are also indicating that the westerlies are becoming more pronounced over the northern hemisphere at this time, and another cold front system will make its way southwards through the Gulf of Mexico reaching Yucatan and the extreme NW Caribbean by late Saturday and early Sunday. This system will provoke another bout of showers and thunderstorms over Belize.

No tropical cyclone is expected to form over or move into the Caribbean region during the next five days. However, close monitoring of the cold front entering the NW Caribbean early next week is necessary as the frontal zone interacting with moist, unstable tropical air often favor disturbances to form on the tail end of the frontal boundary. Remain vigilant!

Rainfall rates over Belize will be in the range of 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch on Sunday, Monday. On Tuesday through Thursday heavier showers and thunderstorms, especially in the interior could result in rainfall rates increasing in the range of 0.50 inch to1.50 inches locally in the hills and along central coastal areas. Rainfall rates will then reduce to 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch later on Friday through Saturday; but increasing on Sunday and Monday once again with amounts of 0.50-0.75 of-an-inch over most districts. Locally higher rates are possible in the hilly terrain.

As small as she is it takes a lot of time for just one bird poop!

That's a classic pic Elbert! Perhaps you could market it as the Green Fairy Dock Sweeper?
