It is not clear yet, what is happening, not much movement of any air. Slow movement of cool air, down from the north, yet last night was warmer than the last 4 nights. Some cloud moving down over Corozal and some high level moving in from the west, but generally sunny.
Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, with just a little cloud and not much wind and probably no rain.
Better beware of Invest 98L forming now. A repeat of ETA but perhaps even stronger. Some models bringing it into Honduras as a Category 4-5.
