There are several areas of rain moving over Belize this morning, from the north to NNE. This is from a very large area of swellup caused by those two directions of wind I showed last night, from the NNW and NNE The collapsing swellup is sending cloud out in all directions.

The scattered rain showers are reducing, but parts of central and south Belize are likely to continue rain showers on and off over the next couple of hours or more.
