It is June 1 and the beginning of the hurricane season. A weak trough of low pressure developed over Belize this morning allowing some morning showers to move in from the north east. Also the moist air to the south has expanded northward during the night. The rainfall measured due to this morning's showers was 22.8 mm or 0.9 inch.
The ITCZ has also moved northward somewhat ( stripped ribbon)
The surface of the sun is becoming pepped with small sunspots, an indicator of increasing solar activity. This should start stirring up some more active weather in the Caribbean.
