The East by SE wind and rough sea around our Barrier Reef are still with us but predicted to start calming this afternoon. Wind forecast for the remainder of the week is calm. Today is a sunny day and the predicted high temperature is in the upper 80's.

There is confused weather around, the Caribbean easterlies are only really moving in the north, slower in central Belize. Their is cloud in Guatamala that does not know which way to move, so some moving in many directions, then there is the high level from the SW that is lightly clashing in several areas, including parts of central and south Belize, not causing any rain as yet, but I get the feeling that there is rain about and we just could get some over the next day for few. There is a large area of smoke covering much of Honduras, Belize and the western Caribbean sea, so large an area, that it must be having some effect on our weather.

Looks like today will be mainly cloudy, with smokey skies and only a small chance of any rain showers.
