On Ambergris Caye this morning wind from the East is howling at 23 mph with gusts to 30, creating rough sea conditions around our barrier reef. Today is sunny with an expected high temperature of 88 f.
There are patches of heavy cloud out at sea in the SE Caribbean winds, but not near Belize. The wind of Belize is very light at present, but will build up over the morning. Presently a lot of clear sky sunshine, a little cloud over the edges of the mountains and fog in western parts, but that is clearing. No high level clouds.
Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, white clouds developing during the morning, no rain expected.
