On Ambergris Caye this morning the sea around our Barrier Reef is flat calm from an Eastern 5 mph breeze. We have an overcast sky with sprinkles of rain here and there. It should be a warm sunny day with 88 f. being the predicted high temperature.

The Caribbean winds are very slow and from the ESE. The high level is from the south and bringing several swellups with it, a small one over northern Belize coastline, but a large one, with a lot of heavy rain over most of Toledo and into Stann Creak. There is even some clashing over Cayo, causing a few isolated rain areas.

Looks like it will be cloudy for most of us, some sunshine in the north, heavy rains in the south, with lightning, scattered rains elsewhere.

The northern high cloud has very suddenly redeveloped a rapid swellup and rain. The large southern area continues, but appears to be dwindling.
