wow what colours!!!!
The cool NNE winds are still coming down, but weakening and now some easterly Caribbean winds are sneaking in over Honduras and sending some cloud up over southern Belize from the SSE. This cloud will thin as the day warms up. No rain seen on the radar.
Looks as if the cold spell is now reducing as warmer comes in, cloud reducing, white puffy clouds later, no rain.
