The area of moisture that was previously headed this way was eliminated by an Upper Level High that moved in from the Pacific across Guatemala and passed just south of Belize.
We are now right back in to very dry air with no sign of moisture anywhere in the area as shown in the image.

Since last Saturday the weather has been very warm (almost too hot) and dry. Today was very windy.
But now an interesting feature has emerged in the eastern Caribbean. A large area of cloud has burst up from South America such that there is a sharp contrast between the edge of the cloud and the clear dry air to the north.(bright orange). This mass of cloud is moving westward. Will be following its progress.

Over the past 2 days we have had 99mm (3.9 inch) of rain. This is more rain than the entire month of January which received only 74mm for the month.
January 2011 was warmer and drier than normal. The nights were not as cold as usual for January. In contrast, December 2010 was cooler than normal.
