Earl made landfall into the Belize coastline early on Thursday morning August 4th, 2016 with winds of 80mph. It was starting to really get it's act together just prior to landfall.

Additional heavy rains will continue:




What remains of Earl may combine with a disturbance just off the SW Mexico coast and form a new storm S of Baja California. It still remains to be seen how these two disturbances interact and what forms. The NHC is currently giving this new system a 70% chance of development.


Here is the link from above image to what a Tehuantepecer is (I had not heard that one until now!):Tehuantepecer - AMS Glossary

I'll gather some photos from Belize and post this weekend. Belize city saw several feet of water storm surge. May not sound like too much but it's low lying on the coast, and if you had even just a few inches of water in your home or business you can imagine how much damage / repair cost that could be.

Great example of why we have a 'cone of uncertainty' where the cone marks the possible position of the center of the storm in the future...check out Tuesday August 2nd prediction cone with the actual meandering track of the storm as of Thursday:
