This looks like a big storm but it is not. It is just a lot of water vapour in the upper air, very little of it is falling as rain. Total rainfall for the month of April for Belmopan was only 18 mm. Today was very hot, just over 100F. The landscape is turning a burnt brown colour. The total rainfall since the beginning of last November is only 58 cm or about 23 inches. Not a good situation.
