Interesting weather situation. Belize is right at the point of converging surface winds: North wind flowing down from the Gulf of Mexico, and a south east wind flowing in from the Gulf of Honduras. These two winds are almost cancelling each other so that the winds over Belize right now are almost calm. The air feels very humid and uncomfortable. There is a wind shift line over the southern part of Guatemala where the north and south winds are colliding head on. The cooler north wind is forecast to push a little further south in the Gulf of Honduras then disappear.
