The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Iota, located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea near Isla de Providencia.

Major Hurricane Iota is centered near 13.6N 81.1W at 16/0900 UTC or 20 nm NE of Isla De Providencia Colombia moving W at 9 kt. Estimated minimum central pressure is 933 mb. Maximum sustained wind speed is 125 kt with gusts to 150 kt. Iota is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Additional rapid strengthening is expected during the next 12-18 hours, and Iota could possibly be a catastrophic category 5 hurricane when it approaches Central America tonight. A westward to west- northwestward motion is forecast through landfall. After landfall, a westward to west-southwestward motion is expected. Iota is forecast to produce rainfall amounts of 8-16 inches in Honduras, northern Nicaragua, Guatemala, and southern Belize, and isolated maximum totals of 20-30 inches, especially from northeast Nicaragua into northern Honduras, with 4-8 inches in Costa Rica and Panama, and isolated maximum totals of 12 inches, with 3-5 inches in El Salvador and southern Nicaragua, and isolated maximum totals of 10 inches.

An area of low pressure could form in a few days over the central or southwestern Caribbean Sea. Some slow development could subsequently occur late this week while the system moves slowly westward across the southwestern Caribbean Sea.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

That HURRICANE IOTA is now Cat.4 almost Cat.5 We are now coming under the Caribbean winds from the NNE influenced or driven by this Hurricane. The cloud cover over most of Belize is now under, is not part of the Hurricane, but influenced by it, some is patchy heavy, other is more blanket cover. This could resulting patches of rain in any part of Belize today.

Looks as if we will have a fair amount of cloud, some thin, some heavy which could result in some periods of rain.
