There was no rain at all from the system mentioned in the last report. The system went north missing Belize completely. Late this afternoon some high cloud moved across Belize from the southwest. The Caribbean basin is very dry. According to the Caribbean Climate Change group (the CCCCC) the coming dry season may be very severe. There could be very little rainfall over the next 5 months. This is not good news. Here in Belize the 2014 rainfall is already well below normal. I may have to abandon plans for having any sort of productive garden.
