By Aaron Humes: The Caribbean including Belize is set for extremes in weather patterns at the peak of the wet, heat and hurricane seasons which are forecast to bring an increase in wet days and wet spells, heatwaves, and tropical cyclone activity across the region.
This is according to the Barbados-based Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum, as reported by the Jamaica Gleaner.
Its publication Caribbean Climate Outlook predicts that the potential for flash floods, long-term flooding, and cascading impacts, as well as, heat stress will be high to extremely high for the period August to October this year.
“Heat stress will peak during heatwaves of which several can occur anywhere throughout the period. The Guianas enter the dry season, which will help the floodwaters to recede in areas still affected. Yet, higher than usual numbers of wet spells will lead to slow improvements,” it added.
From April to June, parts of coastal Belize were significantly warmer than usual, and southwestern Belize now faces severe longer-term drought. The rest of Belize could possibly see drought redevelop up to November with periods of heavy or extreme rain decreasing as Belize approaches the dry season starting in February.
