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 July 2017 show that rainfall amounts were well below normal over the north as well as over the mountainous region (Baldy Beacon area) while other parts of the country saw normal to above normal rainfall. The month started out quite wet for the first week or two and then the mid-summer drought set in around mid-month causing the rest of the month to be relatively dry. The maps below show the rainfall totals at some key stations and how these totals compare to the normal for the month of July. A similar comparison is show by the bar graph.
