Finally Some Rain
After weeks of abnormally warm, dry weather, the country is finally having a significant rainfall, the most rain since the beginning of December. This rain is the result of a cold front which became stationary just off the coast of Belize.
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.
