The Met-Service is keeping a close eye on a new weather system in the Caribbean

The National Meteorological Service is currently monitoring another weather system developing in the eastern Caribbean Sea. A hurricane reconnaissance mission conducted today on the area of low pressure revealed that it is without a well-defined center of circulation and remains disorganized. According to Chief Meteorologist Ronald Gordon, the system is being affected by strong winds and interactions with land masses in South America. He says that within this week the system is expected to intensify into a tropical storm, with the possibility of forming into a hurricane, bringing rains to the country next week.

According to Gordon, by all indications this weather system, known as “Invest 91 L”, is not expected to curve northward and have a similar path to Hurricane Ian. However, at this time he says the Met Service it not able to definitively predict the effects it will have on Belize.
