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. This results in August, usually being the second hottest period of the year, after April - May, dotted Red line. Temperatures should normally start to dip in September - October. This year has been very typical in temperatures, not showing any Global Warming, although a bit night time warmer in the first part of the year, we did not have cold fronts come down over us.

I have now brought the long term graphs up to date :

The early years, 2003 to 2007 are not very accurate, they are based on just a few readings each month, usually extremes. But the rest are direct from Daily readings of max and min. but are running 31 day averages... . The dotted orange and dotted light blue are the max and min readings, or extremes encountered. The Green actually means nothing, it is just the smoothed Median between average max and average min.

The Rain is hard to see, sorry, but uses the 50°F line as Rain 0 but it does give an indication of the rain patterns, as you can see, rather erratic. . . Very low during 2019, some very high rains in 2013, 2015 and 2020
