From Belmopan... 09:30 BZT
I am declaring, that, as of the 30 May 2014, we are now in the Rainy Season.
This does not quite fit in with the " One criterion for the onset of the rainy season is two consecutive days of rainfall accumulation of 30 mm or more, and four of the following seven days are rain days of 1 mm rainfall or more. ". . . . .But that is just One of the criterion.
The Weather pattern all over Central American, Guatamala, southern Mexico and Belize are very definitely the Rainy Season type, and has been for several days. . .. ..And, although I have only recorded 25mm ( 1" ) over the 30 & 31 May almost none last night in northern Belmopan, the rain level has not meet the above, to qualify, there have been several bands of serious rain crossing over Belize, over the last 3 days and I feel sure, many parts of Belize have been well over the 30mm ( 1¼" ). . . .. . It is also quite normal to have lulls and sunny days during the Rainy Season.
The Radar was off line between 02:30 & 08:45, so not sure how that rain crossed up Belize.. . . But there are still patches of scattered rain in parts of Belize, and probably for much of the day.. . . .It was a largish ITCZ activity, that crossed over Belize last night. . .. We might see some sun, but not much if any.
