From Belmopan...

As expected, TS HARVEY has overnight, intensified. I still do not see any rotation, but certainly a lot of ITCZ type swell-up intensification. It also appears to be pushing that high level cloud that was going up over Cuba, more our way, causing some rain out at sea and isolated areas of rain on land. Harvey is acting rather like an intense Tropical Wave, not a tropical storm. The rotating air has moved more west and now over the gulf, some of its NW wind is clashing with the high level from the SSW and is causing rain over and near Belize.

Looks like today is going to be a mixture of cloud, sun and patches of rain.

This storm has not been so much about sea temperatures, but more about will it rotate or not.

As I have been saying all along, I have not been seeing any significant rotation, but a bunch of intense ITCZ type swell-ups.

I try to say it as I see it, but at the same time, we have to be prepared and ready, in case it does things I have not seen and intensify into some form of damaging storm.

The present indication is little or no wind, but could be dangerous flooding rains.
