From Belmopan...

Rather confusing weather presently, causing a lot of rain areas around the western Caribbean, Panama really getting hit by a huge ITCZ swellup and rain, but there are several fairly large swellups nearer to us and a number of smaller ones. Right now one is causing rain over Toledo and small patches eslwhere. These are likely to increase later this afternoon or evening. The high level is also coming in from the east and clashing with some Caribbean easterly clouds, but there is another air movement coming up from the south, looks like a mid level, interfering with the easterly Caribbean air movement.

Today is going to be a mixture of sunshine, cloud and isolated rain showers.

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