Screen_Shot_2014-10-23_at_7.51.32_PMAt 3:00pm today, the National Emergency Management Organization issued advisory number one on Tropical Depression No. 9 which was situated at the Bay of Campeche, West of Belize. NEMO reported that the depression had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour.

 

Movement was towards the east-southeast at 5 miles per hour. As the system crosses the landmass of the Yucatan Peninsula, coming from the West towards Belize, it is expected to weaken. The intensity forecasts are pointing to a much weakened circulation over Belize Friday morning. The release states that showers, heavy at times, along with some outbreaks of thundershowers, will greatly increase the risk of flooding over the next 4 to 5 days.

 

NEMO advises the general public to make plans for blustery and squally weather conditions and flooding possibilities. The Belize Weather Bureau in its 6 pm forecast says that cloudy to overcast skies with some outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms will affect the central and northern parts of the country tonight and on Friday. Westerly to south-westerly winds at between 5 and 15 knots will produce light choppy sea conditions. But gusty conditions near showers and thunderstorms will make the sea locally rough.  Therefore operators of small craft on the coastal areas of Belize are being advised to exercise caution in rough seas. The wet and showery conditions will continue into Saturday; but hey conditions will start improving on Saturday.
