Monthly Rainfall Summary for April 2017

 

Introduction

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 April 2017 shows that with the exception of Central Farm over the west-central parts of the country, most other stations recorded rainfall well above their normal for the month. The most significant feature for the month was an upper level trough which produced strong and numerous thunderstorms on the 17th of the month. Showers and thunderstorms persisted on the following days but gradually decreased. The maps below show the total rainfall recorded at some key stations and how that total compares to the normal for the month of April. A similar comparison is shown by the bar graph that compares the recorded total for April 2017 againt the climatological norm for the month.
