Monthly Weather Summary, February 2019

National Meteorological Service of Belize

Monthly weather summaries are prepared by the climate section of the National Meteorological Service (NMS) of Belize. The NMS of Belize maintains a network of over 25 weather stations that are situated primarily in the agricultural regions of the country. Temperature and rainfall are read at 9 am each morning and the rainfall total read at this time represents the accumulated rainfall for the previous day.

February typically marks the beginning of the dry season for the country. Temperatures normally start increasing as the month is characterized by a warm easterly to southeasterly surface airflow. Whatever limited rainfall that occurs during the month is typically associated with one or two cold fronts, prefrontal trofs, shear lines and low level easterly wind surges.

February 2019 started off mainly fair and characteristically dry across the country. Except for light isolated showers over the south during the first week of the month, very little rainfall occurred across the remainder of the country. Highest one day rainfall total based on automatic weather stations data was over Punta Gorda on the 3rd when 16.6 mm of rainfall was recorded. The low levels were dominated by a dry easterly to southeasterly flow during the period while a dry subsident pattern prevailed at the upper levels.

Moisture increased slightly over the area on the 8th as winds shifted to the east-northeast. This supported a few showers over southern, central and inland areas of the country. This activity increased further on the 9th with some showers noted across much of the country. Rainfall remained relatively high overnight on the 9th through early morning on the 10th and decreased later in the day as a drier easterly to southeasterly airflow became established over the area.

A diurnal pattern of increasing moisture during the late night to early morning hours on the 11th and 12th supported a few showers and then the only cold front for February 2019 crossed on the 13th. This weak cold front supported a few showers over the northern districts of the country that day.

Moisture decreased on the 14th and continued very low through to the 20th of the month. This period was characterized by warm, hazy and dry conditions across the country. Although, moisture increased slightly in the boundary layer after the 20th, this increase was only enough to clear the haze and no significant rainfall was noted across the country. The month ended mostly dry.

The graphs and maps below summarize the total rainfall and average maximum and minimum temperature recorded during the month of February 2019. They also give an indication of how these readings compare to the normal for the month across the stations sampled. As can be seen, rainfall was below normal over the Stann Creek, Belize and most of the Cayo District while over the Toledo district rainfall was near normal. The northern parts of the country (Corozal and northern Orange Walk district) saw above normal rainfall during February 2019. Maximum/daytime temperatures were warmer than usual while nighttime (minimum) temperatures were normal to slightly above normal during February 2019.

There are multiple thin lines of Caribbean cloud coming in and already significant clouds forming in many parts of Belize, this is causing many small patches of rain, some even smaller patches of heavy momentary rain.

Generally it looks like it will be a sunny day, but with significant cloud and a chance of the odd rain shower.

On Ambergris Caye this morning the wind is from the East at 18 mph creating a choppy sea state around our barrier reef. It's a sunny day with an expected high temperature in the upper 80"s.
