Rainfall summaries are prepared by the climate section of the National Meteorological Service of Belize. The NMS of Belize maintains a network of over 25 rainfall stations that are situated primarily in the agricultural regions of the country. Rainfall is read at 9am each morning and this represents the accumulated rainfall for the previous day.
The rainfall summary for November 2017 shows that rainfall amounts were below normal across the country for the month. The bulk of the rains fell from around the 11th to the 15th and 19th to the 20th of the month where a moist northeasterly flow supported an increase in showers as high pressure ridges dominated the Northwestern Caribbean. The maps below show the rainfall totals at some key stations and how these totals compare to the normal for the month of November. A similar comparison is show by the bar graph.
