EARL ashore in Belize

Thursday 4th August 2016

Hurricane EARL has moved ashore into Belize and is weakening albeit still a tropical storm. It will weaken further as it tracks across the southern Yucatan today. Despite weakening, EARL will produce heavy rainfall and flooding. By Friday, it is expected to track near the southern Bay of Campeche bringing heavy rain and gusty winds to the area but may as yet miss the Bay entirely and continue to weaken ashore. Unknown quantity as yet.

Disturbance twenty is now just 100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and moving west at 15 knots. The disturbance will move across the Leeward Islands today and tomorrow producing scattered showers and stormy conditions but not likely to develop.

Disturbance twenty one is about 920 miles east of the Lesser Antilles also moving west at 15 knots. It will produce enhanced showers and thunderstorms across the Lesser Antilles over the weekend but also looks set to fail to organise itself further.

Stand by for foul weather in Belize and southern Mexico.
