From Belmopan...

Near Belize, the picture is more of the same, same chunky Caribbean easterly clouds, mainly over southern Belize, again with a few scattered small rain showers, which will probably continue on and off for much of the day. There is thin high level cloud from the west. But the big picture in the Atlantic is more complex, more on that later.

Looks like today will be similar to the last few days, sun and cloud, with the chance of the odd small rain shower.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 24C 76F Yesterday max. 32C 90F

The bigger picture is that TS FLORENCE continues to develop in the east Atlantic, looks as if it will go up in the Atlantic clear of any land, presently, no indication that it will reach hurricane strength.

The area north of Cuba is complex, much of its cloud is moving north, but there are swellups just off the north coast of Cuba, that are drifting NW, there is possibly some indication of potential rotation, it did have an Invest number earlier , but that has now been dropped.

The cloud in the Gulf are just a bunch of swellups, being fuelled by the significant cloud in the Gulf moving from Mexico towards New Orleans, not showing any storm activity apart from what swellups do.
