From Belmopan...

There is very significant ITCZ activity around, a very large area up near Cuba, helped by high level cloud coming down from the north, others around but not near Belize at present. We had our hottest day of the year on Monday and hottest night last night, both significantly above the typical temperatures. This would tend to indicate we will be getting significant rains relatively soon, perhaps within the next 2 - 3 weeks or so. Chunky lines of Caribbean cloud coming up from the ESE, already building up along the Belize northern coast line. There is another small swellup just to the west of Toledo. Presently no rain on or near Belize.

Looks like today will be hot and humid, could be isolated rain, even thunder in parts this afternoon.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 26C 78F Yesterday max. 34C 94F

Not looking comfortable. The heat and cloud building in Guatamala as the Sun gets hotter there. It is already pushing out air in most directions, particular over Belize. So will be sending hot air our way.

Only a guess at this time, but looks as if today could be a hot day, even compared to yesterday.
