Belize Weather

Belize experiences only wet and dry seasons and they can be classified specifically by months. Actual weather conditions change every year, but once the pattern starts, weather becomes very predictable.


Belize experiences little rainfall during January. Only in the uplands of the Maya Mountains have rainfall of about nine to 10 inches. The northern area of the country may experience less than 10 inches of rain. In the southern area, Mayan bean crops are starting to mature, while the northern area sugar cane harvests are in full blossom.


February tends to have the most consistent of weather conditions in Belize. The winds are quite dry and blow steadily. Morning showers come from the coastlines–steady, but not very often. Rainfall falls to about six inches during this month in Toledo, while the rest of the country gets only about an inch.


The weather for March is quite similar to February except in the northern part of the country, which experiences much less rain, and sometimes, almost none. Winds start to die down during this month. Thunderstorms start to threaten the land over Maya Mountains. This is the month when farmers start to harvest their crops.


Rainy season starts during this month and harvest is in full swing.


The rainy season is in full force and almost every part of the country is assured of some rain fall. In some areas, the rain is stronger. This is also the stormy season, with the south experiencing more frequent rain than the north.


Rain continues to pour and becomes heavier during this month. Winds start to build up once again. With the consistency of the rain and strong sunshine, this is the best time to start growing the crops.


Rainfall is a bit less compared to June, but everything else with regard to weather conditions is quite similar to the previous month.


Rainfall starts to relent and the dry season starts. The dry weather conditions may last for only a few weeks.


September sees the winds start to die down. Evening and night rains are common.


Northern cold winds start to pick up and meet the warm winds of the tropics, bringing rain. Cooler days start during this month.


This is the coldest month of the season. Not only do the cold winds from the north blow the strongest, breeze from the coast comes in as well. Rain continues to fall.


December marks the start of dry season and planning starts for the planting season.
