What’s Up With The Weather?

Is there another storm out there? With all this rain and flooding since Wednesday, it might seem so and those still - recovering hurricane Earl victims are starting to get worried. Well, the experts say there's no need to be overly concerned because it's just the usual wet November weather. Today Meteorologist Ronald Gordon assured the public that the rainy spell will pass, eventually:...

Gordon says the weather should clear up by Tuesday. The Northeastern part of the county is being most affected, and that includes Belize City and San Pedro and the northern districts.

Rain, rain, please go away!

Incessant rains across the country have inundated parts of Belize City and the weekend forecast indicates that there are more showers ahead.  The downpour began in the wee early hours of Wednesday and has remained a prominent weather feature since, dumping almost six inches of rainfall on the Old Capital.  While there is no weather system currently being monitored by the National Meteorological Service, heavy showers at this time of year are to be expected.  News Five visited the Met Service earlier today to find out what’s up with all this water.

Ronald Gordon, Meteorologist, Nat’l Met Service

Ronald Gordon

“Just a bit of history.  The rainfall started about Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.  Initially we had a very moist and unstable condition supporting this activity and we woke up on Wednesday morning to heavy showers and thunderstorms across the country.  There was a slight lull on Thursday, yesterday, I don‘t know if you recall that.  And then the rainfall started again today.”

Isani Cayetano

“How many inches of rainfall have we received over the past few days?”

Ronald Gordon

“Okay, immediately Belize City comes to mind.  We had about five point seven inches of rainfall over the past three days.  The rest of the country was not as bad, the focus was mostly in the northeastern portions of the country, including Belize City, Ladyville and the San Pedro area.”

Isani Cayetano

“Now what can we expect going into the weekend.  There are more rainfalls to come our way?”

Ronald Gordon

We expect more rainfall, however, I must say that we expect a gradual decrease.  So, in other words, the rainfall tomorrow should not be as much as we experienced today and then Sunday should be much better.  By Tuesday we are looking at generally isolated conditions, just isolated showers and so on.  Have there been any reports of flooding in low-lying areas as a result of these torrential rains? We have not received reports of widespread flooding across the country.  We know that Belize City has been receiving the normal street flooding and so on due to the rainfall, but there has not been any report coming to us about widespread flooding.”

Isani Cayetano

“In terms of the forecast, looking ahead, is there any system out there that we should be monitoring and what-have-you?”

Ronald Gordon

“Okay, I must say that the rains that we have been receiving are not from any sort of tropical systems, depression, cyclone, none at all.  These are normal rainfalls for this time of the year, we have moist northeasterly airflows over our area that persist sometimes for weeks and so it is normal November rainfall.  Currently there is no system in the Atlantic that is being monitored for development; however, we are in the hurricane season and I‘d like to advise residents to always be on the alert until the hurricane season is over.”

The forecast is in such contrast to the reality on the ground I thought I might post two.

From Belmopan...

That particularly heavy and persistent rain yesterday, was mainly caused by a cold front that has passed over the gulf of Mexico and over Belize and Honduras now, pushing back the warmer tropical air. There is significant cloud patches in the NE Caribbean air, so they might bring batches of rain over Belize later today, but at present there is little to no rain on land and presently, not much out at sea either.

Looks like today will be largely sunny, with white clouds from time to time and a low chance of any rain showers.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
Today is probably going to be similar, to yesterday : Fri, max. 29°C 84°F Last night min. 23°C 74°F ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )

This developing Caribbean air cloud, will probably produce significant rain later today. . . But only small scattered showers showing up on the Radar at present.
