From Belmopan�..

Where the Belize Weather Service gets the idea of North - NorthWest winds I just don't know.. . ... The Rain on their Radar is moving from the SouthEast.

The Radar is showing isolated scattered showers, although some larger areas going north into Mexico. I recorded 22.5mm ( 1" ) over night. . . . .Mainly from continuous light rain, not showing up on the Radar. The surface wind over Belmopan is from the SouthWest.

The normal High level wind over Belize is from the SouthWest. Which has been the predominant winds from the Pacific, particularly over the Gulf of Mexico. This SW wind, usually creaks over the Belize inland area at night and sometimes into the morning. The Caribbean E wind is normally the Low level wind, it appears to be driven by the Sun, following the Suns direction. So the typical Rain as we see it on the ground moves in from the East.

Looks like overcast and drizzle perhaps for much of the day. . .. Last night temperature down to 68°F ( 20°C ) Normally, by this time, we would have had several cold fronts go over us, but not in 2013.
