Gorgeous “Cold” Front Sweeps Over Belize
Last week, Belize set some new records for October with temperatures in the 90s (real feels/heat index levels over 110). Sun blazing, low winds, just incredibly warm for mid-October.
But Monday, the first “cold front” of the season blew in. The winds shifted – now blowing in from the north. Bringing lower humidity, a very brisk breeze, and dropping temperatures. Yesterday was in the upper 70s/low 80s – and the heat index was also in the low 80s. For Belize? That’s a serious temperature drop. Kids were sent to school in tightly zipped sweatshirts, adults brought out the long-sleeved shirts.
I SEE YOU ROLLING YOUR EYES! But temperature is relative. In Barrow, Alaska, locals celebrate the warmth of spring when temperatures first get above freezing (in June or July!)
On Ambergris Caye, the temperature ranges between 70 and 90F year-round. SO when the thermometer shows temps in the 70s? When everyone’s bottles of coconut oil solidify on their counter? (Coconut oil turns from liquid to solid at 77F) You can be sure Belizeans are getting out their jackets and rubbing their hands over bowls of hot chicken soup.
Absolutely beautiful. Here are some photos of the cold front yesterday in San Pedro, Belize.
Kids coming home from high school along Central Park Beach.
The closed Wild Mango’s Restaurant…a favorite spot that shut earlier this year.
I decided to keep walking south…passing Blue Water Grill Restaurant.
A friend of mine had taken a picture of the beach at Ramon’s Village Resort and their property is so pretty…
I had walked maybe 1/3 of a mile and…I wasn’t sweating! I haven’t felt this fresh and clean in months!
And their gorgeous curvy dock. Dive boats were coming in from the morning dives, visitors were walking around in flip flops and bathing suits…no clue that this was a cold front.
One that looks like it might stick around all week. Enjoy!
