From Belmopan...

Well it did reform over night and is covering a very large area and forming many swell-ups near to Belize. It has now been called TS FRANKLIN and is right on our door steep. They reckon its centre is 52 mph winds, I think that is perhaps wishful thinking, there are usually strong winds below any swell-up, this area is many swell-ups, so yes there can be winds of 52 mph, but I am not seeing that as the central rotating speed. However, its cloud cover is vast, one of the biggest TS I have seen, that tends to prevent them spinning up much, but without calling it a TS, they can't put a name to it.

There are individual swell-ups occurring along the Belize coast right now, particularly Belize City, Dangriga, and also Corozal and approaching PG. At present, not a lot of rain, but there are small, isolated heavy rain showers, the main rain is way out at sea, which is getting nearer to Belize.

Looks like today will be overcast, with rain showers in any part of the country

The latest cloud picture. The cloud area is huge, this is just a quarter of it.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Sun max. 31°C 88°F Last night min. 26°C 78°F
