Josephine continues west-northwestward

Tropical Storm Josephine is tracking to the west-northwest at 15 mph. People in the Leeward Islands and the eastern Greater Antilles should closely monitor the track and intensity of developing Josephine; however, model trends over the past 48 hours steer the track of TROPICAL STORM Josephine north of both the Leewards and Greater Antilles Island chains.

There are large ITCZ swellups all along the Nicaragua and Honduras coasts, which is being brought into southern Belize by the easterly Caribbean winds. There is already some rain in Toledo from all this and probably more coming in. Too early to be sure yet, but it would well spread into central Belize later today.

Looks like a sunny morning with increasing cloud for most of Belize, but heavy cloud in parts of south Belize with rain.

Very significant rain in Belmopan right now, in that small orange circle, yet you can't see much cloud there.
There is a trace of thin high level cloud from the south which is probably aggravating some clouds in central Belize into dropping rain. The real rain is moving up, through southern Belize at present.

Present Condition: Mostly cloudy, some clear skies in the north, rain is moving towards the north. Relatively moist and unstable conditions will prevail during the next 24 hours with a gradual improvement.
24hr Forecast: Cloudy spells with a few showers and thunderstorms over the southern districts and along the coast this afternoon, spreading to most places tonight into tomorrow morning, decreasing. A small craft caution is in effect for gusty winds and locally rough seas near heavy showers and thunderstorms. A flood watch is in effect for low-lying and flood prone areas.
