Satellite imagery and surface observations show several sargassum mats offshore and along coastal areas of Belize. There is a high chance that more mats will continue to affect local beaches in the coming days. San Pedro has a high probability and a major expected impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook:
At 3:00 am, the center of Tropical Storm Hanna was located near latitude 26.3N, longitude 98.9W, or about 40 miles west northwest of McAllen, Texas. A broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave that is located about 1000 miles WSW of the Cape Verde Islands has a medium chance of tropical cyclone formation during the next couple of days.

The Caribbean Sea
There are two tropical waves
moving across the basin. Scattered moderate convection is noted inland over Panama and N
Colombia. Fresh trades are occurring across most of the basin,
with some strong winds pulsing over the south-central Caribbean.
Fresh to strong winds across the central Caribbean are expected
to continue pulsing through the forecast period. Fresh to strong
SE winds are also expected in the Gulf of Honduras tonight through
Mon night. A strong tropical wave will approach the Lesser
Antilles by the middle of the week increasing winds/seas across
the eastern Caribbean as it moves west.
What was once Tropical Storm Gonzalo has dissipated west of the Windward Islands as of Saturday evening. The remnants of Gonzalo are forecast to move generally westward across the southern Caribbean for the next couple of days. This is the last advisory being issued on this system.
Tropical Wave | INVEST 92L Conditions appear to be conducive for the formation of a tropical depression early this week from a broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave located about 1,750 miles ESE of the central Lesser Antilles. The wave is which is presently producing a large area of cloudiness and disorganized showers and thunderstorms. is forecast to move westward at around 15 mph across the tropical Atlantic. We are watching for development into a CYCLONE this week, July 26-Aug 2, 2020. Whether a TROPICAL STORM or HURRICANE, the next, assigned name will be "Isaias" and all people/friends in the Lesser Antilles, Leeward and Windward Islands are urged to closely monitor the track and intensity of this likely future CYCLONE.

There is a broad line of high level cloud moving in from the east, being carried in by the easterly Caribbean winds. That earlier Gonzalo has fizzled out, not even a depression now. Hanna is now a depression over north Mexico. We now have to keep an eye out on West Africa, where there is cloud around in the Atlantic.
Looks like today will start off sunny, and cloud building, then possibly heavier cloud moving in this afternoon.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25°C 77°F Yesterday max. 33°C 92°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
That heavy cloud in the Caribbean, keeps fizzling away, before it gets to Belize.
Present Condition: Mostly clear, cloudy north or Belize and off the coast to the east. A few clouds in the south. Fair, windy and warm weather prevails. 24hr Forecast: Sunny with a few cloudy spells during the daytime and partly cloudy tonight. Mainly fair weather will prevail and showers or thunderstorms will be isolated, except for over southern and some coastal areas tonight, where a few more can be expected. Residents, especially those inland, are advised to stay hydrated and to avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. *Small craft caution will likely go into effect this evening, for gusty winds and rough seas*

There has been a significant swellup in the Caribbean, to the SE of Jamaica. This has sent out a front shock wave at over 50 mph, heading towards Belize and causing more rain behind that shock wave. See that white curved " C " cloud line to the south of Jamaica. That could reach Belize in 12 hours, that would be in the early hours of tomorrow morning if it does not slow or dissipate in the mean time. You see that high rain type cloud coming down from the north and some In Guatamala that caused some rain in western Belize earlier today.
