Typically, there is cloud streaming out of the Pacific, in a line over north Mexico and southern USA, this has been coming further south over the last few days, but now it is breaking up. Cold air from the north can do this sometimes, but presently there is cloud coming down from the north and a new high level is forming from the west. At the same time, the Caribbean winds, often with stringley lines of cloud, come in from the east. Right now all three of these air movements are effecting Belize, plus fog in much of central Belize. So the north of Belize is being effected more by the air and patches of thinnish cloud from the north, southern Belize is getting the easterly Caribbean air, which is now starting to form lines of cloud over the low lands.
Presently no rain, but I had significant rain last night or early this morning.
Fog is normally cloud on the ground, there are several causes, most of the fog in southern Mexico and Belize is 'Radiation' fog, caused by clear sky, dropping surface temperatures causing the air to condense moisture. But what happens to that fog. ? Well as the day warms from the sun, that fog rises, so now now fog on the ground, but it looks like low flying cloud, but it is not the normal clouds and it will thin and evaporate away as the morning warms up. This is quite common this time of the year in parts of Belize.
Looks like today will be rather variable, even after the fog has cleared. Sunshine in the north is being replaced by an increasingly thick cloud from the north. Sunshine in the south is being replaced by lines of Caribbean easterly clouds and sunshine. Central Belize will be a mixture of both these two clouds. Presently no rain, but there could be the odd patchy rain later.
