From Belmopan... 07:45 BZT
Now the Radar working, we don't need it.. ..Only a few scattered showers way out at sea. ... Cloud free skies around, although some thin high level cloud.
I have added Yellow lines to show sort of fronts. . . .These are not cold fronts, just different air masses. . . I have also shown which way those lines are moving in Yellow. . . .. .That line of Blue cloud over Mexico moving our way is vaporising before it reaches Belize. . . . . .
So I expect today will be largely sunny, some cloud developing later, but probably no rain, possibly the isolated shower. . . .Presently the wind is from the SW, but that will change to Easterly later this morning as usual.
