August is often quoted as a dry month during the wet season, but it usually is not, but the monthly rain is usually a little dip. The typical rains are the dotted blue line, showing June as the heaviest month, which then tapers slowly down through December, in to February. There is often a dip in that line in August, but that still leaves August as a high rain month. August is also the typical highest tropical storms month. The one thing we can be sure of with Belize weather, is it is highly variable and hard to predict. You can see how this year, June had a rather low rainfall, less than half the typical. The dashed line shows this years actual monthly rain.
August, is our 2nd Mid Summer, as in when the Sun passes at midday right above us at its maximum height.
