By BBN Staff: Today, the National Meteorological Service of Belize and the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO)  issued advisory 1 informing the nation of a broad area of low pressure that is expected to form over the western Caribbean Sea during the weekend. 

The system is forecasted to move westward toward Central America early next week, and some development is possible if the low remains over water while moving near the coasts of Honduras, Guatemala, and Belize.

There is a 20 percent formation chance throughout the next 5 days.

NEMO says that if the prediction changes for the worse, considering all the factors, by Tuesday we might be facing a significant threat.
