Good example of what a wind shift line looks like. Line lies across the Yucatan Channel. The south east wind flow across Belize is keeping the weather here hot and dry. The front in the channel is forecast to weaken and dissipate overnight.

Rain yesterday and last night measured 22.5 mm but now dry weather has returned again. The wind shear image is showing that a dry season upper air flow is beginning to establish. This is known as a zonal pattern which means that the wind flow is more or less straight from west to east. This pattern remains pretty much the same during the whole dry season.

This morning the cold front has pushed further south and is not as clearly defined. The north wind can be seen behind the front. The tail end of the front can be seen in the water vapour image. The front is expected to cross into the Yucatan tonight. Will have a better idea how Belize will be affected after sunset today.

The image on the right shows an interesting representation of the position of the cold front that is currently crossing the Gulf of Mexico. The cold front itself is the dark line that curves down, crosses into the coast of Mexico then up again towards western Texas. The north wind can be see above the front. This cold front is expected to affect Belize by Friday before sunrise.
