By Horace Palacio: After days of tumultuous weather, Belizeans woke up to a pleasantly subdued atmosphere today. The National Meteorological Service of Belize reports that conditions are becoming “less moist and less unstable” over the area, offering the country a much-needed breather.
According to the morning forecast issued at 6:00 AM, today is expected to be sunny with only a few cloudy spells. Rain showers or thunderstorms are predicted to be generally isolated, largely dissipating the continuous downpours the country has been experiencing. If there are to be showers or thunderstorms, these will mostly develop over the interior regions after mid-morning, and potentially affect coastal areas late tonight.
For those planning marine activities, the forecast is in their favor. The wind is blowing from the East-Northeast at a moderate speed of 5-15 knots. Sea conditions are characterized as “slight,” with wave heights ranging from 1 to 3 feet. This provides a stable environment for fishermen, boaters, and water sports enthusiasts to make the most of the day.
In terms of temperature, it is advised to stay hydrated and make use of sun protection. Coastal areas will experience a high of 90°F and a low of 80°F. Inland areas are expected to be hotter, with a high reaching up to 95°F, while the low may drop to 73°F. The hilly regions offer the coolest temperatures, with highs of 82°F and lows of 68°F.
For early planners, the outlook for Saturday into Saturday night seems to echo today’s conditions. The forecast suggests “mainly fair with only isolated showers or thunderstorms on Saturday,” although a few more showers may affect the coast Saturday night.
The tides for the day show a low tide at 9:53 AM, a high tide at 4:34 PM, and another low at 8:19 PM. The sun rose at 5:41 AM and is expected to set at 5:48 PM, giving locals just over 12 hours of daylight. The moon, meanwhile, will rise at 12:21 PM and set at 11:29 PM.
Forecaster Derrick Rudon notes that while the weather has become more stable, it is essential to keep an eye on meteorological updates, especially for those planning outdoor or marine activities.
With fewer disruptions from Mother Nature, it’s a day for Belizeans to reclaim their routines and relish the natural beauty Belize has to offer.
