Heavy Rains Over Guatemala

The tropical disturbance discussed in the previous post developed into a tropical depression before moving inland across Belize and over Northeastern Guatemala. The system is expected to move west-northwest very slowly so there's the possibility of a lot more rain for Guatemala, Belize, and Southeastern Mexico. It is not expected to strengthen as a cyclone as long as it remains over land so high winds are not expected except possible local strong thunderstorm winds.
