From Belmopan...

No apparent difference in weather, despite them showing a cold front approaching. There is high level air coming down from Mexico as normal, there is southerly Pacific high level cloud swirling around in the Pacific to the west of Panama, which is continuing to cause smaller swell-ups in Guatamala. Looks as if there might have been a very little rain just to the north of Corozal, otherwise at present, no indications of much difference in our weather.

There does not look like any change to the last few days weather, sun cloud this morning, cloud reducing a bit this afternoon. There is less smoke dust in the air, no indication of any rain, but lets hope that does change later and we do get some rain.

Some areas are already short of water. I am seeing pickups at all the riverside access points filling 55gal drums, and even getting water out of abandoned wells here and there. yesterday there was a big tanker at Jaguar Creek taking water.

Temperatures in Belmopan:
Today is probably going to be Similar, to yesterday : Sat, max. 35C 95F Last night min. 26C 79F ( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler )

From Belmopan yesterday evening...

We had 3 or so very close lightning strikes. . . . Our power went out. . . I don't know for how long, because I am working from my house Inverter system, but it is back now.

Heavy, heavy rain, working its way diagonally down from the NW across Belize.
