Tuesday, October 2, 2012
We appear to be under the influence of a classic OMEGA block. The moisture to the east has been transported to the north leaving Belize in dry but unstable air with very little upper air circulation. Have no idea how long this block is going continue. Solar activity has been very low recently with weak solar wind. Update: A small storm cell developed around Belmopan about 2PM and produced a heavy shower that lasted 1 hour. Measured a rainfall of 1.8 inches. The cell dissipated quickly thereafter.
