Ernesto has gained some strength overnight and remains on the forecast track. Only the most northern part of Belize will be affected. Here in Belmopan there should not much affect at all, maybe just a strong breeze later today. Was hoping for more rain, but it looks like most of the rain is on the north side of the storm. We might get only about 25mm rather than the 50mm mentioned earlier. The storm is already north of Belmopan and well off the coast.
