A broken line of light rain across the country, hardly moving . ...Yet despite that line across Belmopan I measured no rain this morning.
There was a cold bubble coming off Texas last night, which has moved rapidly over the Yucatan and half of Belize now.
Another small ITCZ developed over Mexico but dying now.
So the present Overcast cloud and virtually no wind will persist for some time today, I expect some sun later, but not much rain.
A hundred or so Mangoes on the ground under the tree, so presumably there was rain associated Wind earlier this morning.

There has been an increase in moisture overnight with a trace of rain from low clouds just before sunrise. The water vapour (TPW) pattern in the Caribbean is beginning to look more complex with some moisture streaming north of 10 degrees latitude. The solar wind this morning was 486 kms which is fairly high considering the lack of any large coronal hole. Plus it is now 6 days after the full moon which is normally a time of potential rainfall. This increase in moisture may just be temporary and the dry weather should continue at least until a week after the next New Moon.
