From Belmopan...

The large rotating air mass is still out there in the Atlantic, now far to the east of the States, but it is still drawing cool air down from the north, into the easterly Caribbean air. So we are continuing to be getting cool air over Belize. The high level clouds are from the west, two areas, one coming from Mexico. The other from the Pacific to the west of Panama. There is now some very significant ITCZ activity near Panama and in the Caribbean to the east of Panama. Typically it is about a month or so, before this works its way up northwards and gets to our area.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, with clouds, and there is some rain in parts of Belize.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Sun max. 29°C 84°F Last night min. 22°C 71°F

There is continuing clashing of the high level west pacific cloud with the easterly Caribbean winds, resulting in significant rain just developing in many parts of Belize, it is not exactly coming in, but mainly just developing over land.

Please note, the time shown on the various Satellite and Rain Radar pictures is GMT
So subtract 6 hours from that time to get Belize time. The below Rain picture is therefore 13:01 or 1pm

We got the ground well wetted. I sat out and took it all in until I got cold. I love this weather.
