On Ambergris Caye this morning we are having a strong Northern wind that places the barrier reef in the lee of the island. The expected high temperature for the day is in the low 80's.

From Belmopan...

A very complex weather situation this morning, but the predominant winds are the cool air from the north, mainly overridden the easterly Caribbean wind, but there are odd other wind movements in the area. The net result was a band of rain and a line of rain came down from the north. ( The Rain picture is 7am ) But the patches or rain started late last night, right now little or no rain anywhere. Yet the surface wind is from the SW, different to all the cloud movements. :-\ Looks like today will be a cool, cloudy day, at least this morning, increasing sunshine later, probably little or no rain.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 21°C 71°F Yesterday max. 31°C 87°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0.0" )

The complex Cloud picture, no rain. Cool air and clouds from the north, mid blue, surface over Belmopan from the SW, traces of easterly Caribbean clouds, presumably warmer clouds coming up from the south over Guatamala.
