From Belmopan...

Swellups both small and large around, a very large one in the Pacific against Guatamala, sending high level cloud over us from the WSW, causing a number of small swellups and scattered small rain showers over parts of north and central Belize, but significant rain patches over Toledo.

Looks like today will be sunny with lines of white cloud, but also the odd sprinkle anywhere at any time.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 24C 76F Yesterday max. 31C 88F

The Cloud and rain picture. There are many swellups now causing a lot of thick high cloud over Belize. But most of those are in Mexico and Guatamala, causing the rain there, by the time that cloud gets to Belize, it s not causing much rain.
