Re: Belize Weather Forecast: May 23, 2021

The easterly Caribbean winds have a fair amount of clouds in them, and are clashing with the high level in a few places, mainly Toledo, but also up north and now some in central Belize. This is causing rain in several places.
I expect these rains to continue, on and off for much of this morning, and probably dry up by this afternoon, but generally stay rather cloudy for much of the day.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 24°C 75°F Yesterday max. 31°C 88°F Yesterday Rain 0.9 mm ( 0") This Morning Rain 4.4 mm ( 0.2" )
