Today was sunny and warm. Yesterday rainfall was 0.8 in or 22mm. A weak tropical wave is approaching which may produce some rain tomorrow night. Once this wave passes we should be under the influence of the dry African air. I have not yet planted any seed in my garden in anticipation of the return of dry air. The dry should last till mid June.

There was a shower sometime between 3 and 4 AM which produced 0.26 in or 6.6 mm rainfall. The band of showers moved across Belize from west to east. The Atlantic continues to remain relatively dry compared to the Pacific side. Therefore, it is my opinion that the real Caribbean rainy season is not yet underway.

There were more showers last night bringing the total for May so far to 7.2 inches. The band of moisture that has been affecting the region for the past 9 days has now drifted off to the east. We are now finally back to dry weather again. The weather should now remain relatively dry until we start encountering the Atlantic hurricane season which begins 1 June 2012. I am predicting a fairly quiet season for hurricanes at least until October.
