From Belmopan...

There is a lot of heavy and stringy Caribbean clouds coming down from the NE over much of central and southern Belize this morning, causing many outbreaks of scattered rain showers. Northern Belize has mainly sunshine, but there are a couple of lines of cloud, possibly with some rain moving in right now.

Looks like today is going to be very different in different parts of Belize, patches of heavy cloud and even rain in central ans south, on and off for much of the day. Some cloud and occasional rain in the north.

Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 21C 70F Yesterday max. 29C 84F Yesterday Rain 7.9 mm ( 0.31" )

Tomorrows WEATHER for - SUN 10 Feb 2019

The heavy cloud over Belize kept building, despite clearer weather out at sea, this is still the situation. Looks as if there was a hidden air coming up from the south that messed with the Caribbean clouds to make them to get thicker and produce more rain than was originally expected. There is still no clear indication of warm air from the south, so not clear what will happen tomorrow, my guess is that the NE Caribbean winds will continue and bring strings of cloud, with some heavier patches, but less than today.

Looks as if there will significant cloud around and some rain, hopefully less and more isolated than today, and possibly a little sunshine in some parts.
