From Belmopan... 08:15 BZT

A lot of rain last night, Radar stuck again.. .. .We had 25mm ( 1" ) of rain last night, due to this continuing, rotating area of low pressure wet air over north Central America and Mexico. . . .. in addition, we had a small ITCZ fair up over southern Belize, these two clashed, resulting in that Rain, which i presume covered much of Belize over night. . .. .

Looks as if that is clearing now, so although they may well be some scattered rain in parts of Belize, I expect that will generally reduce. . ..Present overcast clouds will thin as the day progresses, but later cloud build up this afternoon. ..

There could still be rain later and tonight. That other rotating wet air over Cuba will not effect us, but you can see how much wet air there is around.

Unstable weather in the forecast

Relatively moist and unstable conditions are dominating our weather heading into the second half of the week.

The general forecast for Belize and her coastal waters is for cloudy skies at times with a few showers and isolated thunderstorms, mainly inland this afternoon and then over the south and coast tonight and tomorrow morning.

Winds over the open sea and along the coast will be easterly to northeasterly at five to fifteen knots. The sea state will be choppy.

Low temperatures tonight will be around 77 degrees Fahrenheit along the coast; 73 degrees Fahrenheit inland and a cool 68 degrees Fahrenheit up in the hills. High temperatures on Wednesday will range from 88 degrees Fahrenheit along the coast, to 92 degrees Fahrenheit inland.

It will be a comfortable 78 degrees Fahrenheit up at the exposed areas of the Mountain Pine Ridge and along the Maya Mountains in the south

The tides: there will be a low tide at 4:13 pm. This will be followed by a high tide at 10:22 pm.

The sun will set at 6 pm. It will rise again at 5:40 am on Wednesday.

The extended forecast, valid through to Thursday afternoon is for similar weather conditions to prevail, with a increase in cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms starting on Wednesday morning.

And that is a look at the weather, with information provided by forecaster Ronald Gordon at the Belize Weather Bureau.

Weekly Weather Outlook for Belize

Period: September 815, 2014

Summary: A deep and moist easterly airflow will prevail over the NW Caribbean during this working week. This is typical of September climatology, after the below normal rainfall conditions that prevailed across the country during the first half of the 2014 rainy season (June through August, 2014), which impacted the main corn crop that was planted later than normal. Model forecast (NOAA-GFS) is resolving an active tropical wave moving over Belize during Wednesday (see NHC 72-hr forecast map). This feature will be coupled with an upper level, diffluent ridge circulation, favorable for further widespread outbreaks of thunderstorms, especially inland over the Orange Walk, Cayo and Toledo districts.

There is a fair bit of rain all around us, but not much on Belize right now. . . So I expect some rain over night. A lot of activity all around.
