From Belmopan...

A lot of straggly cloud in the Caribbean coming in, causing isolated patches of rain, mainly in parts of central and south Belize this morning. There is the odd very thing high level cloud from the WNW which could effect some of the Caribbean cloud, it caused massive swell-ups over Mexico and Guatamala yesterday evening.

Looks like today will be a mixture of sun and cloud, with the chance of the occasional rain in parts of central and south Belize any time during the day.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 23°C 74°F Yesterday max. 31°C 87°F

The Cloud and rain pictures. The straggly Caribbean clouds are building and increasing over land, in large areas. There is very little trace of any high-level cloud, but the WNW high-level winds are inter-reacting with the lower Caribbean clouds, causing them to get larger and producing patches of rain, probably into this afternoon.
