Tropical Storm Marco

At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Marco was located near latitude 19.6 North, longitude 85.4 West. Marco is moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). A northwestward motion is expected on Sunday, followed by a turn toward the northwest and west-northwest early next week. On the forecast track, the center of Marco will approach the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico today. The center will approach the northeastern part of the Yucatan Peninsula by early evening and move over the central Gulf of Mexico toward the northwestern Gulf on Sunday and Monday followed by a track toward the northwestern Gulf coast Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days as the system approaches the Yucatan peninsula and Marco could be near hurricane strength when it moves over the central Gulf of Mexico Sunday night and early Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center.

At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Laura was located near latitude 17.6 North, longitude 65.5 West. Laura is moving toward the west near 21 mph (33 km/h) and a generally west-northwestward motion is expected over the next few days. On the forecast track, the center of Laura will move near or over portions of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico this morning, near or over Hispaniola this afternoon and tonight, and near or over eastern Cuba Sunday and Sunday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is expected during the next few days.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km) mainly to the north of the center.

The power failure effecting Belmopan and much wider is due to be restored around 10:00am
There is not much air movement over Belize at present, that Depression is still sitting out in the Caribbean, with many swellups and rain out there. . . There is a bit of cloud sitting over Ambergris caye that might be dropping some rain.

Looks as if today will be sunny and hot, cloud will start to develop later this morning, apart from Ambergris caye, there is no indication of any rain around.

On Ambergris caye this morning the sea is calm. We didn't have surge or high winds from the passing storm, only a sprinkling of rain.

They have named that Depression TS MARCO it really is not a storm, but they want names.
But it has effectively stopped the Caribbean winds, and even pulling some clouds from the west, surface wind is from the SW

Present Condition: Mostly clear. Relatively moist and unstable conditions prevails.
24hr Forecast: Warm and sunny with some cloudy spells. Showers and thunderstorms will be isolated this afternoon with a few more over the northern districts and offshore. Activity will increase slightly over inland areas this evening and then mainly along the coast later tonight, becoming generally isolated tomorrow morning.

The clouds just starting to move from the east, earlier they were moving the other way.. . . Swellups now over the northern mountains and into Cayo areas, and just south of Belmopan, with rain.

The sky is SO beautiful right now as a storm system moves to north. Photos by San Pedro Scoop
