Tuesday, November 25, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: It is a warm, sunny morning in San Ignacio town. Indeed across the nation today, the weather is beautiful; but change is on the way.
The Belize Weather Bureau says that an increase in moisture later in the day will herald the arrival of a Cold Front.
In the meantime however, the sunny conditions will continue for most of the day; then an increase in shower activity will start inland and move across the entire country tonight.
Winds are easterly to southeasterly at 5 t 15 knots; but will shift to the north-west on Wednesday morning.
The sea state will be choppy today; but will become locally rough near showers and thunderstorms tonight.
High temperatures today will be around 87 degrees Fahrenheit along the coast; 93 degrees Fahrenheit inland and a comfortable 78 degrees Fahrenheit up in the hills.
Low temperatures tonight will be around 72 degrees Fahrenheit along the coast; 68 degrees Fahrenheit inland and a chilly 64 degrees Fahrenheit up at the exposed areas of the Mountain Pine Ridge and along the Maya Mountains in the south.
The tides: there will be a high tide at 12:24 pm. A low tide follows at 5:20 pm.
The sun will set at 5:16 pm.
The extended forecast, valid through to Thursday is for cloudy, windy and cool weather. Some showers and a few thunderstorms will occur over the sea and in the south and periods of rain will occur elsewhere.
That is a look at the weather, with information provided by forecaster Ronald Gordo at the Belize Weather Bureau.
