Saturday, October 25, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: The National Meteorological Service predicts a cool and wet weekend, as on the heels of Tropical Depression Nine which crossed Belize Thursday night from the Yucatan Peninsula.
There is a cold front which is scheduled to arrive this weekend.
According to Chief Meteorologist Dennis Gonguez, at this time of the year storms behave erratically as the guiding currents are not in place, which explains the unusual west-to-east track TD 9 took.
But while T.D. 9 has been reduced to a disorganized area of thunderstorms and showers, it could regenerate as it reaches the warm waters of the western Caribbean in front of Belize and joins on to the tail end of the cold front.
An easterly flow will direct the mass toward Belize, possibly bringing rain.
According to Gonguez weather conditions will start to see some improvement as the weekend progresses but a change is expected early in the new week.
TD Nine has already dumped 2 and a half inches of rain across Northern Belize during its passage.
As for the forecast for tropical weather for the last few days of October and November, activity will center in the northwest Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico but there are typically few storms due to the passage of cold fronts from the north.
There are two notable exceptions: a 1942 hurricane that is to date the only storm to strike Belize in November, and Hurricane Hattie, a Category 5 hurricane which struck on Halloween night October 31, 1961 and flattened Belize City, killing a few hundred people and forcing the relocation of the capital to Belmopan.
