By Horace Palacio: Belizeans can expect a blend of sun and clouds today as relatively moist and unstable conditions linger over the region, according to a morning update from the National Meteorological Service of Belize. While the morning started with isolated showers and thunderstorms primarily offshore, more are predicted over inland areas in the afternoon.
By nighttime, the skies are set to turn cloudier, with showers and thunderstorms increasing in frequency and intensity. These conditions are particularly expected in the southern regions and along the coast.
Mariners are advised to tread with caution. Although the morning began with calm winds at 0-10 knots, shifting to an East-Southeast direction later in the day at 5-15 knots, the sea state remains slight with waves between 1-3 feet. Near heavy showers and thunderstorms, gusty winds and locally rough seas can be expected, warranting a small craft caution.
Temperature-wise, the coastal areas will experience a warm day with highs of 90°F (32°C) and lows around 78°F (24°C) during the night. Inland temperatures are predicted to be hotter with highs reaching 95°F (35°C) and dropping to a cooler 73°F (23°C) at night. Those in the hilly regions can expect a relatively mild day with highs of 81°F (27°C) and lows of 68°F (20°C).
Adding to the cautionary note, the National Meteorological Service has issued a strong thunderstorm watch. This means that there is potential for thunderstorms to intensify, producing heavy rainfall, intense lightning, and damaging winds. Residents and visitors are advised to stay vigilant and prepared.
Looking forward, Tuesday is anticipated to have cloudy skies with occasional showers and thunderstorms, primarily inland during the day and almost everywhere by night.
Today’s sunset is expected at 5:46 PM, while tomorrow’s sunrise will brighten the skies at 5:42 AM. Those interested in lunar timings, the moon is set to rise at 3:13 PM today and will set early tomorrow morning at 2:44 AM.
The forecast was provided by Crystal Rosalez from the National Meteorological Service of Belize. As always, residents and visitors are encouraged to stay informed and take necessary precautions when engaging in outdoor activities or marine ventures.
