Right now Ernesto is off the north east coast of Honduras. The storm had been strengthening overnight but it appears to me that now it is weakening again. I might be wrong, but in my opinion, by the time it gets to Belize it will not be a hurricane by just a moderate tropical storm with winds of no more than 40 mph and produce about 50 mm of rain. I shall make an update this afternoon.
