That rain last night was due to the same sort of ITCZ swell-ups that have been happening over Mexico and Guatamala for the last few weeks. This time the high level clouds that caused it were more form the WSW and yesterdays day time temperatures were high, more so near Belize than Mexico & Guatamala where the line of Caribbean cloud that had crossed over Belize on Friday. Some are suggesting it was due to INVEST 93L but it was not, although low pressure in our area would have helped those swell-ups to produce rain. I have been watching the cloud and air movements very closely yesterday. That rain we had yesterday evening was due to air moving in to Belize from the SW, way back in the Pacific.
However the Caribbean serious cloud and storm area, which was some 300 to 600 miles to our east, is now moving northwards, and is starting to spin up slowly. Its west side has been hit by the swell-ups over Belize, which were moving in from the west, and combined with the low pressure centre I showed yesterday and has increased, and is not called TROPICAL DEPRESSION THREE and is going up towards Florida, having completely missed Belize, despite what some have been saying, I was watching the wind direction and strength in Belmopan Caye Caulker and Chetumal.
Today looks as if it will be a bit like yesterday, when the early morning high cloud has thinned, no Caribbean wind at present, due to that cyclonic weather, so still SW winds, with some light rains in parts of northern Belize. I expect increasing sunshine and a low risk of rain. We could get some more swell-ups tonight, if the sun gets bright today.
