The cold air over the southern States is all coming down our way, causing a lot of cloud, all moving from the NNE over the whole Yucatan, Belize, Guatamala and Honduras, only clearing as cloud as it gets over the Pacific line of Mountains. Despite all the cloud, there is no rain anywhere around.

This morning will continue to be rather cloudy, but the clouds will be thinning as the day progresses, there are patches of blue skies, no rain expected.

As the cold air continues to come down from the NNE, it is pushing against warmer air, so continuing to result in heavy cloud cover over most of Belize, so probably a cloudy night. The clashing has been causing a little rain out at sea.
