Advisory Issued for Tropical Storm Grace

The National Meteorological Services of Belize and NEMO issued an advisory today for Tropical storm Grace which was due west of Corozal Town this afternoon.  The storm is expected to continue its northward motion, making landfall in Mexico between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum late Wednesday and early Thursday as a category one hurricane.  The met service says while Belize will be on the calmer side of the system, showers and thunderstorms will increase over the northern half of the country on Wednesday night and persist through to Saturday. Flooding is possible in low-lying areas and winds are likely to become gusty and sea conditions will become rough later on Wednesday. A small craft warning will likely be in place.   A Tropical Storm or Hurricane Watch, or Warning is not required for Belize today, but the Met Office says they will continue to monitor the system.  Belize is approaching the peak period of the hurricane season, so viewers are reminded to review their Hurricane plan, and to make arrangements for early movement to safety should NEMO advise the public to evacuate for this or any other storm.
