That fold of cold air down over the Gulf and Belize yesterday, was pushed back by the Caribbean winds to form a clashing line from Belize west border right up to Merida, and is being pushed back down our way this morning. Presently, there is just a little rain coming in from the WNW at present, but a lot of cloud. The Met office are suggesting that this Yucatan cloud will result in a fair bit of rain perhaps this evening and particularly Friday.
Looks as if today will start off sunny but with a fair bit of cloud, and then get cloudier as the day goes on and could be significant rain late this afternoon or evening.
Temperatures in Belmopan : ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last Night 24 °C 76 °F Yesterday max. 33 °C 92 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0. ") Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
