Five Day Outlook from Rio Dulce

After the passage of the last tropical wave, here in Eastern Guatemala we are now in the midst of a moist unstable air mass that is causing intermittent rain and thunderstorms. We have about one more day of this before the next tropical wave arrives.

The next wave is located at 85W right now and marks the trailing edge of the moist air mass we are in. Behind that wave is a drier Saharan air mass which should bring drier days for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Then behind that is another wave followed by moist air that should bring significant amounts of rain on Saturday and Sunday.
