Ambergris Caye:

Philip S W Goldson International Airport:


Caye Caulker:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Fred remains a poorly organized tropical depression over northern Cuba. Despite the poor organization, Fred is producing areas of heavy rain across much of Cuba and the southern Bahamas while tracking to the west-northwest. While vertical wind shear is inhibiting development, very warm ocean waters and a moist environment surrounding the storm should support gradual strengthening in the coming days as Fred moves into the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

Tropical Storm Grace is moving across the western tropical Atlantic. The environmental conditions around Grace will remain conducive for additional strengthening over the coming days. This system can bring a round of gusty, possibly locally damaging wind near its track, along with heavy rainfall. It is expected to move across the Leeward Islands this weekend, then near Puerto Rico by late in the weekend. Early next week, it will move across Hispaniola and near or just north of Cuba. Heavy rain and locally gusty winds will accompany the storm as it crosses the islands.

Another tropical wave can emerge off the African coast this weekend, keeping the basin quite busy.

There are 2 tropical depressions out there, both following the same path, North Caribbean, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Cuba, Florida or Florida Gulf. Neither are of any threat to Belize.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have blue sky with a light breeze from the Northwest creating flat calm sea conditions around our barrier reef. It's going to be a hot day.

Not really "weather" but certainly an important environmental event - major earthquake this morning in Haiti. Readings on the quake's strength range from 7.2 to 7.6 Shallow quake. Strongly felt in the area, including major shaking in areas of Jamaica. It appears that there is no Tsunami threat to Belize.

That TROPICAL DEPRESSION FRED is affecting our weather right now. It has stopped the easterly Caribbean winds coming over Belize, and allowing a little high level winds with some cloud to come down from the NNE The result is very few clouds around, so hot and sunny, but with a small chance of the odd rain shower, as there was last night. No rain, some out at sea.

Today will be mainly sunny, a few clouds developing, but will still be a sunny day, perhaps not as much as yesterday, only a small chance of the odd rain shower.

Probably a calm overnight, could be the odd rain shower anywhere

Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )
Last Night 26C 77F Yesterday max. 34C 94F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0") Over Night Rain 1.8 mm ( 0.1" )

Regarding Fred, as you can see from the hurricane people, they say the centre is tracking along the north Cuba coast, but the active cloud weather is mainly to the south of central Cuba, with another active area to the west of Cuba, as shown on my morning weather. . . Which ever case, it is not going to affect us much, but it has stopped our easterly Caribbean winds.

Note the tropical wave 24 is already hitting the shores of Quintana Roo. Interaction with a Fred-induced trough will lead to storms this afternoon in the Peninsula. Tropical wave no. 25 approaches from the Central Caribbean.
