By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize City Emergency Organization (CEMO) has issued an advisory about a weather disturbance producing moist and unstable weather over Belize as reported by the National Meteorological Service of Belize (NMSB).
“Cloudy with some showers and thunderstorms mainly over northern and inland areas this afternoon,” said the NMSB in its midday 24-hour report on Friday.
“Tonight, some showers and thunderstorms will affect mainly coastal areas, moving generally from south to north. Tomorrow morning, a few showers and thunderstorms will linger over the north.”
CEMO said we should expect several outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms over the next few days and heavier activity is likely during the night time on Friday and Saturday.
“This poses a possibility of flooding over low-lying and flood-prone areas,” CEMO said.
“We urge all residents, especially those in Belize City, to remain alert and abreast of all-weather updates and developments shared over the course of the weekend,” CEMO advised.
The NMSB issued a small craft caution due to gusty winds and locally rough seas near showers and thunderstorms.
All this is being caused, according to the United States National Hurricane Center’s (NHC) midday forecast, by a surface trough over parts of Central America and the southern Yucatan Peninsula that is producing heavy rains over Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula during the weekend.
The NHC said in its midday report that the disturbance is causing heavy rains and thunderstorms as it moves into the Gulf of Mexico by late this weekend.
