WEEKLY WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR BELIZE
The feature of interest this week will be a quasi-stationary frontal boundary over the NW Caribbean coupled with a moist, NE’ly airflow through Wednesday. Thereafter, the airflow will swing to the East and East Southeast favouring drier weather.
A cold front will move SE across the Gulf of Mexico as we move into the up- coming weekend, but the southern portion will weaken before it moves into the NW Caribbean.
The weather will be cloudy at first with showers and periods of rain, some heavy at times, especially over the hilly terrain and along the coast today, Tuesday and early Wednesday. Later on Tuesday and most of Wednesday the rains will be concentrated mostly along coastal areas and in the South. The rain will decrease later on Wednesday through Thursday. It will become generally fair on Friday through Monday, although a backing in the wind-flow on Sunday could lead to some showers developing mostly along the coast.
Daily rainfall accumulations over most districts on Monday through Wednesday of this week will range from 0.50-0.75 of-an-inch, with higher rates of 1.75-2.00 inches in the hills and southern districts. Daily rainfall totals will be decreasing after Wednesday, ranging from 0.10-0.25 of-an-inch on Thursday though Monday, particularly along coastal areas.
