Tropical Weather Outlook:
THe 2016 hurricane season ended Nov. 30. Tropical cyclone formation is not expected anytime soon.
On Ambergris Caye this morning the wind is coming from the SE at 15 mph and it seems like our March blow is in April this year. The sea is rough and cancellations for water sports are in order. It's sunny and the expected high is 89 f.
The weather is calming down. There is still the high level SW winds, but the cloud is thinner. The easterly Caribbean winds does not have much cloud in it. The fog or low level cloud is not moving but sort of developing northwards, shown by the yellow arrow. The ITCZ type swell-ups have now gone. The easterly Caribbean wind might keep the temperature down a little today.
Looks like today will be another hot day with only small areas of cloud, no rain expected.

The present clouds and haze are coming up from the south, as shown by my yellow arrow at present. But the surface wind we feel is the easterly Caribbean wind over Belize. No hint of rain, just hot humid air, with hazy sunshine between the clouds.
