On Ambergris Caye this morning it's sunny with a wind from the Southeast. The sea around our barrier reef is choppy. Today's expected high temperature is in the upper 80's.

From Belmopan...

A little calmer today, there is fog again in much of central Belize and strings and clumps of Caribbean cloud coming in from the east, but less clashing. The rain is mainly out at sea and will probably reduce as it gets closer to land.

Looks as if today could be fairly sunny after the fog has cleared, there could be the odd rain shower.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 23C 73F Yesterday max. 28C 84F Yesterday Rain 11 mm ( 0.4" )
