Matthew Has Left Guatemala

Tropical Storm, now Tropical Depression Matthew did not slow down and stop for a while in Belize as expected, which would have kept the storm in our area for at least another day.  During the night the storm kept moving, crossed the Peten, and is now over Palenque in southern Mexico.  It is expected to continue moving WNW and further away from us here in eastern Guatemala.

As is typical after the passage of such a storm we enjoyed a relatively fresh and cool afternoon yesterday and cool night last night.  Once the storm is out of the area, our heat and humidity will return along with thunderstorms.

Little rain, if any, is expected in Rio Dulce today (Sunday), tonight, and Monday, however expect heavy rain and thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday nights.
