The Caribbean winds are trying to take over again. They are over most of the Yucatan, and the north half of Belize, but there is presently, little or no wind over southern Belize, where the previous air mass is resulting in no movement and no clouds.

So a cloudy start to the north and clear skies to the south, but the easterly Caribbean will take over to give sunny skies with white clouds but no rain today, no rain anywhere near Belize.

Patchy clouds building over northern Belize mainland. . . Feels very 'muggy' yet less indication of smoke in the air, part of it is probably that the wind is very slow, but the air feels uncomfortable. Often this leads to thunder storms, but I do not believe in this case, it might be that there is a lot of grey, not orange, but grey dust in the air, making it fee more humid that it actually is.

A very large ITCZ swell-up has been occurring this afternoon over Guatamala and now spread way into central Belize. There is rain from this in Guatamala, but only a tinny bit over the border in the mountains at present. The dust from fires in the atmosphere is all over the western Caribbean making it sticky in Belize today.

This dust will be around for a few days, quite possibly triggering more ITCZ swell-ups tomorrow, which could cause rain.
