There is a little bit of high level cloud around, some in the Stann Creak district and possibly some rain south of PG, but other wise the easterly Caribbean winds are building clouds, but very little rain around.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with significant clouds, and only a small chance of any rain.

Could be rain moving in from the west, certainly high cloud coming in over Belize from a number of swellups.
