Thundershowers last night from 0200 to 0500 hr with 36 mm of rain or 1.4 inches. This weather system followed almost the same pattern as previous. That is, developed in the southwest corner of Belize and moved northeast just south of Belmopan. The storm was triggered by the passage of a Tropical wave moving in from the Caribbean across the Yucatan. This wave is now dissipating as High Pressure builds to the north in the Gulf of Mexico. On the Pacific side is TS Carlotta which is heading north but may get pushed to the west by the building High in the Gulf.
