From Belmopan...

Significant areas of Caribbean cloud coming in from the ENE clashing with a lot of high level cloud from the SW. Causing isolated rain in some areas of Belize, from PG, Stann Creek to Corozal.

Today will be a real mixture of mainly cloud, some sunshine and the odd chance of some rain showers.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25°C 76°F Yesterday max. 33°C 92°F

The Cloud & rain picture. Several ITCZ type swell-ups due to the clashing, which are causing some rain.


White arrows are the regular clouds we see, usually the Caribbean wind clouds. Orange arrows are the high-level winds, which are often hard to see, but do have significance on our weather.
