that rain gauge looks good!

This heavy cloud and swellups have again been caused by a large rotation weather system that moved over the US with its swinging arm tht came down over Mexico first, then over the Yucatan and Belize. It made the high level more active and put something in between the high level and the easterly Caribbean winds to cause all the swellups. Swellups are still all up the Belize coast line and on land over the Belize District

Looks like a cloudy day for most, perhaps a little sun sometimes, but still rain along coastal areas.

There is still a lot of activity over coastal areas. But, like yesterday, some of the action is moving backwards into central areas, presently Orange Walk district and Toledo.

You can see the northern swing of weather, now centred on the north Atlantic, with its cloud arm extending across the North Caribbean and over Belize. There now appears to be another one, centred over the north east US, with its arm over Georgia and the top of the Gulf, which again, may have some effect on us in a few days time. Notice the high level cloud that develops in the Pacific, bottom left corner, which is coming over Belize from the SW Most ITCZ activity is over Panama and the north of South America.

The Atlantic seas surface temperature is probably too cold to support hurricane activity as yet, but we need to watch, because ITCZ swellup activity can trigger a tropical storm.
