By Horace Palacio: The National Meteorological Service of Belize has reported that the morning’s moist and unstable conditions will continue to affect the region.
The day started sunny with intermittent cloudy spells, but as it progresses, residents, especially in the northern coastal areas, can expect a few showers and thunderstorms. These conditions are forecasted to shift towards the south and west by the afternoon. As night falls, the entirety of Belize should brace for showers and thunderstorms, with a significant concentration on the coastal areas.
For those venturing out at sea, current marine conditions reflect easterly winds at speeds of 5-15 knots. The sea remains relatively calm with a light chop, and waves are projected to reach between 2 to 4 feet. Mariners and coastal residents are particularly urged to exercise caution due to the advisories currently in place. A strong thunderstorm watch has been issued, warning of potential heavy rainfall, intense lightning, and damaging winds. Additionally, a small craft caution is active, alerting seafarers of gusty winds and the possibility of rough seas, especially in the vicinity of thunderstorms.
Temperature-wise, coastal areas will experience highs of 88°F (31°C) and lows of 78°F (26°C). Inland regions will be warmer with temperatures rising to 94°F (34°C) and dipping to 73°F (23°C) at night. The hills, however, will remain relatively cooler, with a high of 81°F (27°C) and a low of 67°F (19°C).
For those planning their activities according to tidal movements, today’s high tide was registered at 7:01 AM, with a low tide expected at 2:14 PM. Another high tide is anticipated at 8:19 PM. Tomorrow’s early risers can expect a low tide at 1:42 AM.
Sunrise was observed at 5:42 AM and the sun is set to retreat below the horizon at 5:45 PM. For lunar observers, the moon made its ascent today at 4:01 PM and is expected to set early tomorrow at 3:48 AM.
The outlook for Wednesday and its subsequent night points towards similar weather conditions, so residents should remain prepared.
Derrick Rudon, from the National Meteorological Service, urges Belizeans to remain cautious and updated with the latest weather updates.
