Weekend Forecast by Ramon Frutos: Thursday May 4, 2017: This is the time of the year we are all wondering when will the rains start and this heat abates. Most will say Climate Change..., but we've had hotter April-May before. Let's wait and see. Seasonally hot, dry weather continued across the country today, under the influence of a light to moderate east to southeasterly airflow. An active cold front is moving across the central Gulf of Mexico. Pre-frontal convection extended in a narrow line from around Tampa Florida to near Merida, Mexico this afternoon. This late season cold front will reach Belize on Friday evening, inducing outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms starting in the early afternoon on Friday. Rainfall associated with the thundery weather will range from half-an-inch to over 1 inch in places of the western interior and the south on Friday night through Saturday. Higher rainfall could also induce rapid run off and localized flash floods in some hilly areas. Showers and thunderstorms will decrease on Sunday through Monday. Click here for the full report.

From Belmopan...

The approaching cold front, caused a band of rain to cross over from Mexico, into northern Belize, but it broke up and scattered, causing only small patches of rain as it went down over Belize last night. There was very heavy and intense rains in Guatamala, and some of that did go into Belize southern mountains and parts of Toledo. The actual cold front has not yet got to Belize, so today will be largely overcast and possibly patchy rain, possibly some heavy rains later this afternoon or night.

Looks like today will be largely cloudy, with westerly winds, and possibly the odd rain shower, perhaps more rain later.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Thu max. 33°C 91°F Last night min. 24°C 75°F
