The cold front #Waxim (no. 43) is already reaching the shores of the Yucatán Peninsula. Its induced trough generates scattered storms in the area.

As so often, when cool air pushed in, it actually results in warmer air, and last night was very warm. But in this case, the easterly Caribbean winds have already pushed back, and resulting in some patches of significant cloud. The SW high level has snagged on some of that high cloud and so causing very significant cloud, causing rain and even sun lightning, particularly in central areas presently. These cloud area are patchy, many other parts of Belize are in sunshine.

Not clear how this will pan out yet. Some areas of heavy rain, some areas of sunshine. But changeable weather today.

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 24°C 75°F Yesterday 33°C 91°F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0") Significant Rain likely this morning

Very changeable weather. . . It is being caused by the clash between the easterly Caribbean winds and the cool air from the NW, which are forming high cloud, which then gets snagged by the high-level winds from the SW
