By Aaron Humes: The 9 a.m. Saturday advisory on Tropical Storm Julia puts its center closer to the coast of Nicaragua with maximum sustained winds at 65 miles per hour, moving west at 21 miles per hour.
According to Chief Meteorologist Ronald Gordon, “Latest forecast track is taking Julia further south. As a result dissipation over central America is becoming less likely. Looking like TS Julia will survive the trip across Nicaragua and enter the Pacific. Also speeding up with landfall on Nicaragua looking more like late tonight into early Sunday morning.”
Gordon continues that the storm’s threat to Belize remains the same, in the form of heavy rainfall and flooding. Latest model forecast shows about 2 to 4 inches today, he said, and about 4 to 6 inches tomorrow, Sunday. Locally higher amounts are possible.
Julia still has the potential to strengthen into a hurricane before landfall.
Belizeans are encouraged to continue listening to the latest advisories from the National Meteorological Service and National Emergency Management Organization and make plans accordingly.
