Formation of a tropical cyclone is becoming more likely in the Atlantic Basin, now the Tropical Wave increases to a 40% chance of becoming a depression or storm in the next 5 days as it moves northwest to across the tropical Atlantic. "Danielle" is the next name to be used.

A very large ITCZ type swellup developed over most of Belize and causing many areas of rain, some very heavy, others just light rain. This is the result of ITCZ activity and high level clashing, giving rain and thunder.

Looks as if much of today will remain very cloudy and dark, with continuing periods or rain, bot light and heavy.

Last Night 24 °C 75 °F Yesterday max. 30 °C 85 °F Yesterday Rain 9.7 mm ( 0.38 " ) Over Night Rain 14.0 mm ( 0.55 " ) Humidity this Morning 89 %
