The battle line yesterday evening had moved to north western Guatamala and western Yucatan, after the rain over Belize stopped. But this morning, that has all disappeared, except leaving a lot of cloud over northern Guatamala and central Belize. The cool air from the north has won the battle and and pushing down towards Belize. The Caribbean winds have been diverted down towards Honduras. So presently, it is all rather variable.

Presently significant cloud covering central Belize, but patches of blue sky, bright sunshine in parts of south Belize and patchy in the north, so variable and could be isolated rain in some parts.
