Something is approaching Belize? Not sure what this thing is going to do yet. seems to be evolving but into what. Will give an update in a couple of hours.

It is now 25 Sep. 2011 at 11:30 AM. The weather system shown completely vanished overnight and had no affect on Belize. The sky this morning was clear.

There was an additional 20 mm of rain during September 18 and 19 then dry air returned thereafter. Today is sunny and warm with a temperature of 30C.

A thunder storm developed overnight lasting from about 1 AM to 5 AM. It produced some locally heavy rainfall. At my location I measured 83 mm (3.3 inches) of rainfall. The ground here is now totally saturated. Any additional rain from now on is going to be a serious problem. There is a significant amount of moisture to the east of Belize which could bring more rain tonight.

The Tropical Wave westward motion slowed down over Belize Monday night. There was steady rain for most of the night followed by some showers during the day on Tuesday. By Wednesday morning the total accumulation of rain was measured at about 90 mm. The weather gradually cleared during the daytime on Wednesday.

The rain ended about 4:30PM and now it is overcast with low cloud. The tropical wave has pretty much dissipated. I measured for the 2 day period a total rainfall of 60 mm which was 11 mm more than my prediction. The weather should be fairly quiet for the rest of the week.

The most active weather remains in the Gulf of Honduras. This area of weather appears to be drifting to the north west rather than westward. Belize is receiving steady light rainfall. So far rainfall has exceeded the 49 mm I predicted and now stands at 55 mm. The rain should end by sunset with a few lingering showers overnight.

A tropical wave is approaching Belize. A Thundershower that began 30 minutes ago has just passed. The main area of stormy weather should arrive about 9PM local time. I am expecting only about 49 mm of rainfall from this system since the heaviest rainfall looks like it will pass to the south of this location. More about this wave in the morning.

Thundershowers have been forming along the Belize / Guatemala boarder then expanding outward in all directions. Right now, the eastern edge of a storm cell just passes through Belmopan. The showers bring a welcome relief to the high heat and humidity. The mid Caribbean is relatively dry with no storms present. Any rainfall around Belize over the next few days should be isolated. The above cell began to retreat around 4PM local time.

There has been no significant weather since my last report on TS Harvey. Only a few isolated brief thundershowers in the late afternoon or during the night. The heavy showers have occurred to the west of Belmopan.
