Will the Developing Weather Make Its Way to Belize?

Ronald Gordon

According to the Chief Met Officer, while they are better able to predict the movement of the system, meteorologists have not been able to calculate the intensity of the weather system.  At the moment, the system near South America remains somewhat unpredictable.

“All indications are that it should be in that area of Nicaragua and Honduras around late Sunday and then after that move across and then would affect us on Tuesday.  We don’t know yet how strong it will be and when it reaches there, we do realize that in terms of hurricane path prediction there has been improvement, but when it comes to intensification there is still a lot of work to be done there.  So systems can intensify rapidly depending on the conditions.  So we are not certain how strong it will be and depends on how strong it will be the impact could be different for us.  A stronger system moving slower across Nicaragua and Honduras, as we had with ETA and IOTA, will tend to dump more rainfall across the country.  So all this is indicating that there is a lot of uncertainty in regards to the system at the moment, which means that we have to be extra vigilant and monitor it closely.  Within the coming days, we are hoping that as more information becomes available we are going to be more certain of what the impacts will be on this country, if it does come our way.  And like I said, all indications are that the system will not be re-curving northward, as we had with Hurricane Ian recently.  The forecast track is for the system to move westward and across Central America.”


We will have more on the weather, as well as the tropical outlook for Belize on tonight’s forecast.
