Various different winds over Belize this morning, causing a fair amount of rain, but out at sea, not on land. The Caribbean winds are from the NNE, but there is another wind pushing in from the west, mainly over south Belize. The High level cloud from the SW clashing, causing the rain. This activity could move in over Belize later today, not clear yet how or when.

This morning is going to be fairly sunny, but with some thin mid-level cloud, but it is all changing, so could be some rain.
