Thunder Shower last night
A trough of low pressure had become trapped and locked under an upper ridge and storm cells form overnight and move northward up through Central America across Belize and the Yucatan. Measured 21 mm of rain from a Thunder Shower last night in Belmopan. Off to the east in the Caribbean the weather is very dry. So the rain over Belize is a welcome relief. The image shows the position of the cells sometime after midnight last night.
