On Ambergris Caye this morning the wind is calming down but the sea needs time to follow. It's still 11 mph from the ESE and outside the Barrier Reef is rough. Our expected high is 87f.

From Belmopan...

The foggy morning conditions continue, showing last night cloud free and high humidity. The Caribbean cloud coming in got to that invisible line between Honduras and the Yucatan and disappeared. Even the high level SW cloud has now thinned to virtually nothing. But when the present fog lifts it will form into white clouds. The cold front out in the Gulf might have some effect on our weather late today or tomorrow, probably not much though.

Looks like today will turn out another sunny, humid day with white clouds and no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Mon max. 30°C 86°F Last night min. 21°C 70°F

The Navy picture just starting to show some interesting information.
The Caribbean cloud, the few that exist, are going up that line towards Yucatan.
The Caribbean wind continues eastwards, and by about 8am are now visible over Belize, but only getting down to surface by about 9:30.
The Fog has lifted to form white clouds over Belize.

But there is cold front air moving in from the west towards Belize, against the easterly Caribbean wind.
Not clear yet which will win and how much influence on our weather this might cause.

Things changing. The easterly Caribbean surface wind stopped. The Clouds are now moving from the NNW over Belize. . . This has been causing a few rain showers up north and also along the mountain edges in southern Belize.
