At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Laura was located near latitude 22.9 North, longitude 85.7 West. Laura is moving toward the west-northwest near 17 mph (28 km/h). This general motion should continue today. A turn toward the northwest is forecast by Wednesday, and a northwestward to north-northwestward motion should continue through Wednesday night. On the forecast track, the center of Laura will move away from Cuba and over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico this morning. Laura is then forecast to move over the central and northwestern Gulf of Mexico tonight and Wednesday, approach the Upper Texas and Southwest Louisiana coasts on Wednesday night and move inland near those area on Thursday. Maximum sustained winds remain 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. Significant strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Laura is now expected to be a major hurricane at landfall. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km) from the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).

There is a lot of cloud outpouring from HURRICANE LAURA but no easterly Caribbean wind over Belize. This storm has been sitting around the western end of Cuba for a couple of days, and has finally intensified to just a Cat.1 this morning, so should start to move northwards soon. Meanwhile, leaving a lot of mid and high level cloud over Belize.

Presently, no indication of rain in Belize, just a lot of cloud, just a small trace of SW "Tiger" wind.

The surface wind was almost stationary, very slight movement from the SW, but that has now stopped and the easterly Caribbean wind will probably start up soon.. . . The high level cloud from that storm, is coming over belize from the east, but getting thinner.

A line of lower cloud bunching up and has resulted in a bit of thunder, and possible the odd rain.
