Seas are generally 8 to 9 ft in the area of strong trade winds over the south central Caribbean, reaching as high as 11 ft off Colombia in the area of near gale force winds.

Well the northern cool air has now taken over Belize, that is why we had a very warm night, the warmest of the year. There was a fair amount of rain in Guatamala, and there have been patches of rain earlier, in parts of Belize, particularly the northern coastal areas. there are still patches of rain around, almost anywhere, but not much.

Looks as if today will be very clouds for most of us, presently still sunshine in southern Belize, a significant chance of rain showers, some could be heavy.

And despite all the rain over Belmopan, there is not much hint from any satellite or rain radar as to what has actually happened. I noticed that the surface wind was coming in from the Caribbean. It feels as if the Caribbean winds have been trying to push against the cool air from the north, but not showing up on any satellite pictures.
