The easterly Caribbean winds have been re-establishing them selves, pushing the cool air away, resulting in very many patches of light, overnight rain, more in the north, but patches anywhere. This is likely to continue well into the morning, easing when the temperatures gut up a bit. There is a bubble of warm air coming up from Panama, causing heavy clouds over eastern Honduras, which could bring more rain late this afternoon or evening.

Looks as if there will be heavy clouds over all the country much of the morning with continual patches of light rain, some clearing in the north first.

Easterly Caribbean clouds dominating, but sunshine is starting to break through in northern areas as the rain patches ease up, but still some rain in central and southern areas. The cloud and rain over eastern Honduras, not getting any nearer.

There has been a line of heavier cloud developing across Belize during the day, which was causing some rain outbreaks.
But, now that temperatures are dropping, the rain is increasing.
