Things are really odd this morning. I wonder why.!
The Surface wind is from the SW. The normal Clouds are from the WNW, completely opposite to normal and the Rain has been moving in from the NNE. This NNE brought in by that weather from Florida did happen, but not as much rain on land as I expected, north Belmopan got none, most now is off shore near Toledo going into Honduras, but there are still a few showers in any part of Belize presently.
TROPICAL STORM EARL centre is about 225 miles from Dangriga and its front about 160 miles away.
According to Wunderground weather :
Last Updated: Aug 3, 2016, 12:00 PM GMT Location: 16.3N 84.4W Movement: W Wind: 70.0 mph Pressure: 989 mb
Yes they say 70 mph and they are showing it as just becoming a Hurricane just before landfall.
They appear to be saying it has slowed down to 13 mph and strengthened maximum wind to 70 mph, so due to make its centre Landfall near Dangriga, around Midnight tonight.
Its front is now on the Belize long range (400km) Radar. But there is Very LITTLE Rain actually showing in that front area.
At present, today looks like a sunny day but with significant clouds and the odd chance of rain showers. But by midday, the situation will start to change.
Temperatures in Belmopan:
Today is probably going to be similar, to yesterday :
Tue, max. 33°C 92°F Last night min. 25°C 77°F ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
