The Caribbean Sea
Broad surface troughing extends from mainland Mexico, eastward,
to the Yucatan Peninsula. Precipitation: Scattered to numerous
strong covers much of the southern half of Honduras, and much of
the southern half of the Yucatan Peninsula. Broken to overcast
multilayered clouds and other rain showers are in the NW corner
of the Caribbean Sea.
The Eastern Pacific monsoon trough passes through northern
sections of Colombia, westward, beyond 07N80W in southern
Panama. Precipitation: numerous moderate to strong is south of

the south central Caribbean Sea through Thursday night. Fresh
winds will pulse at night in the Gulf of Honduras through
Thursday. A tropical wave will reach the Windward Islands on
Wednesday, and move across the eastern Caribbean Sea through
Heavy rain and lightning last night between about 2am - 3:30am over much of central and southern Belize due to serious swellup activity caused by the high level winds from the SW. These are presently causing a huge area of cloud over the Pacific and northern Central America. Right now another large swellup, with rain and lightning is occurring between Belize city and Dangriga.
I am declaring this nights rain, as the start of the Rainy Season, because this rain came from the normal Rainy season type of rain, not rain caused by fronts as earlier this month.
Looks as if today will be largely cloudy, with some sun later, could be more rain later.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 27°C 75°F Yesterday max. 37°C 97°F Yesterday Rain 1 mm ( 0" ) This morning 15mm ( 0.6")

Present Condition:Mostly cloudy on the mainland, not so much in the atolls. 24hr Forecast: Skies will be cloudy at times. Then showers and thunderstorms will be isolated, occuring mostly inland and south, with activity increasing tonight.
As I said this morning, I think we are now in the Rainy season.. A lot of weather coming up from the ITCZ or monsoon belt as it is sometimes called. Belize is inside the green circle. We could get more swellups and rain this evening or tonight.
