There was some significant showers last night around Belmopan from 0230 to 0430. Measured about 12 mm rainfall. The yellow arrow points at the low cloud system responsible for the rain. The system was amplified by a weak trough passing across the Yucatan.
The CCW polar circulation is continuing to strengthen. Now centred at 86.6 N and 174.8 W and very close to the North Pole. This will produce some below normal temperatures across Canada.
