A Break from the Rain

It looks like we're going to get a break from the rain, at least for a couple of days, maybe more. The last tropical wave that came through here dropped a huge amount of rain in Rio Dulce, even by local standards. The river level rose markedly and the color of the water finally changed to "rainy season color" from silt washed down the Polochic by the heavy rains.

Due to unstability of tropical air at this time of year it's always possible for local storms to occur, especially late afternoon and early evening when the temperature decreases, but it looks like no significant rain until at least Friday evening.

There are two disturbed areas out in the Caribbean that could develop and bear watching but are too far away to affect us right now.
