The weather has been fairly dry since my last report but as of yesterday Belize has become surrounded by some moist air and right now an area of rain is moving in from the north. Nor likely to produce much rain as the weather system is not very persistent. We may only receive about 12 mm from this tonight.
Another situation where a trough of low pressure is passing under a Upper High Pressure located in the northern part of the Yucatan. Measured almost 2 inches of rain overnight and up to the present time. The weather should become drier once this system passes. According to science investigator James McCanney, strange weather events may begin to occur towards the end of the month as comet ISON makes its closest approach to the sun and thereafter forms a critical alignment. Will keep a watch on this situation.
The cold front is drifting off to the east allowing the cooler and drier air to flow in behind. There was no rain associated with the front here in Belmopan. The trough of lower pressure off to the east has weakened and will now move off to the north and east. So to me it looks like the weather will just be cool and dry for a few days.
A strong Cold Front is approaching Belize from the north west. Also there is a trough of low pressure off the the south east with a band of dry air in between. The two systems appear to be converging. This should provide for some interesting weather over the next 24 hours. Will update in about 4 hours.
