Monthly Rainfall Summary for February 2017
Rainfall summaries are prepared by the Climate Section of the National Meteorological Service of Belize. The meteorological service maintains a network of over 25 rainfall stations that are situated across the country mainly in the agricultural areas. Rainfall is read at 9:00am each morning and this represents the rainfall for the previous 24 hours.
The rainfall summary for February 2017 shows that rainfall totals were below normal over northern parts of the country and well above normal in the south. The abnormally high rainfall over the south was caused by relatively moist conditions in that area during the month. The maps below show the total rainfall recorded at some key stations and how that total compares to the normal for the month of February. A similar comparison is shown by the bar graph that compares the recorded total for February 2017 againt the climatological norm for the month of February.
The next rainfall summary will be out before the middle of April 2017.
