From Belmopan... 07:30 BZT

A line of high cloud ( Shown with a Yellow line. ) passed rapidly over us last night and another one moving in. I suspect these are associated with cold air. . .. What ever, they appear to be pushing the Caribbean E wind away, which is diverting up northwards.

Looks like it is that, that is causing the rain showers of the coast, which are moving SSE. .. .do not appear to be causing rain on land today. Probably not much sun either today.

Thursday/Friday night I recorded 58°F ( 15°C ) . . The coldest for 3 years. ... The coldest I have ever recorded in 11 years is 57°F ( 14°C )

I keep noticing that the Official Belize Met Office is quoting minimum temperatures well below what I am measuring, and I am wondering why. ? Now I checked my thermometer against a substandard thermometer, ( substandard means calibrated against one of the few Standards around the world. ).

I am beginning to suspect that they perhaps do not measure the true Air temperature properly. . .. If you are outside, then things will get colder at night as temperatures radiate up into the sky, particularly clear night skys. . . .. I make very sure that my thermometer only measures the air temperature passing by it, and not influenced by night radiation loss or direct sun rays.
