Climate:
Belize has consistently warm and humid tropical weather with pronounced wet and dry seasons.

The rainy season typically runs (June - December) and the dry season from (January - May). Rainfall is heaviest in the coastal areas of the far south.

Average high temperatures in the coastal regions reach into the mid 70s throughout most of the year, and a bit higher inland. Much higher temperatures in the offshore islands are commonplace, with cooler conditions the norm in the mountains of the south.

Belize is occasionally the victim of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane season, and the most recent one to hit the country (Hurricane Greta) caused severe damage along the southern coastal areas in 1978.

In fact, after Hurricane Hattie devastated the central coastal area of the country in the early 1960s, the subsequent destruction of Belize City was the catalyst for the relocation of the capital to the inland city of Belmopan.
