From Belmopan...

Satellite image of the rain last night or actually 1:45am this morning. I measured 54mm ( 2" )

The high level brought all that rain in over night, after the easterly Caribbean winds had stopped. Right now there are still mid level clouds coming from the west, but the easterly Caribbean wind has already started and there is a lot of blue sky around and even sunshine, at least around Belmopan. That rain now pushed by the SW high level, way into the Caribbean. There is a possibility, some might be brought back by the easterly Caribbean winds later this afternoon or night.

Looks like today will have a fair amount of sunshine, but a risk of rain this afternoon or night.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Wed max. 31C 88F Last night min. 21C 69F

On Ambergris Caye this morning after a night of rain, thunder and lightning we awoke to no phone, internet or power. It's 11:am now, all has been restored and the sun is out with a calm sea and breeze from the ESE at 5 mph. The expected high is 84 f.
The morning photo was taken at 6:am.
