We are getting into very different weather, although it might not be noticed. The easterly Caribbean winds are typical and strong, but the high level, is now streaming up from the south, although circling with some high level south of Toledo, which is causing some rain in the south. Not clear yet, how this might pan out. the Sun is on its way back from the north and at midday, is already, almost vertically over Belize.
Looks as if today will again be mainly sunny, with significant clouds and a chance of rain in southern areas.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 26°C 78°F Yesterday max. 33°C 92°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0")
