That swirly over North America, that was coming across the Gulf yesterday, has now come right down over Belize and into Honduras, diverting the Caribbean winds completely, causing a little rain down south and no out at sea.

Looks as if today will be largely sunny with clouds, getting more sunny during the day.

Humidity 82% Pressure 1019 mBar hPa Yesterday Rain 0.6 mm ( 0.02 " ) Over Night Rain 0.2 mm ( 0.0 " )
