A Tropical Wave over the Yucatan Peninsula will keep maintain moist and unstable conditions over the country heading into the work week.

The general forecast for Belize is for cloudy to overcast skies tonight along with some light rain.

Winds over the open sea and along the coast will be south easterly at ten to twenty knots, with higher gusts near heavy showers and thunderstorms.

The sea state will be moderate, becoming locally rough at times. Operators of small craft should exercise caution in rough seas.

Low temperatures tonight will be around 76 degrees Fahrenheit along the coast; 73 degrees Fahrenheit inland and a cool 68 degrees Fahrenheit up in the hills.

High temperatures on Monday will range from 86 degrees Fahrenheit along the coast to 89 degrees Fahrenheit inland. It will be a comfortable 76 degrees Fahrenheit up at the exposed area of the Mountain Pine Ridge and along the Maya Mountains in the south.

The tides: there will be a high tide at 1:44 am on Monday. A low tide is at 8:51 am also on Monday.

The sun will rise at 5:39 am on Monday. It will set at 6:06 pm on Monday.

On Ambergris Caye this morning it's rough. Diving outside the reef is not inviting.
We have a heavy overcast sky and the expected high is 85.

From Belmopan... 08:00 BZT

There is Rain all round Belize, but little actually in Belize, it is circulating round us, not moving very fast though. . . .Which means the low pressure centre is over us, not to the west of Belize as shown in some weather information.

In Belmopan we have had very little rain, 0.4mm ( 0.01" ) but some of that was with very high wind, wet windows only wet during the hurricane in 2010. . ... .Looks like this near stagnant ITCZ will be around Belize for much of the day.. . . . Looks like the worst of the rain is now past.
