From Belmopan...

It does look as if that ITCZ area near Panama I mentioned yesterday is developing into a storm. There is some mid level cloud pushing up into southern Belize this morning and high level cloud from the SW clashing with the easterly Caribbean clouds to produce significant rain in Toledo and a little up north.

Looks like today is turning into a mixed weather day, some heavy rain down south, rain later in central and even north Belize later today, otherwise a mixture of sunshine and cloud.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 23C 74F Yesterday max. 30C 87F

The Cloud and rain picture. All sorts of cloud movement over Belize right now, Caribbean air from the ENE with lines of cloud in it, mid level cloud pushing up from the south, possibly as a result of that large, very active ITCZ area near Panama that might develop into a storm, then there is the thin high level cloud from the SW and there is a little trying to come down from the NW. All getting complex, so could cause thunder and rain later today, is causing rain down south presently.
