The climate of Belmopan (Belize)
The city of Belmopan is located north of the Belize Highlands and has been the capital of Belize since 1970. The city became the capital because hurricane Hattie almost completely destroyed the former capital, Belize City in 1961. After this they started to build Belmopan which is located a bit further inland and is less likely to get hit by a hurricane. Whenever a hurricane hits Belize it is likely to have lost its destructive force before it reaches Belmopan. Because Belmopan is a relatively young city it doesnít have many residents; for a capital it is a small city. Belmopan only has 20,000 residents whereas the ancient city of Belize City is four times as big with 80,000 residents. Belmopan has a tropical climate with maximum temperatures of 27-32 degrees Celsius all year round. The dry period is from the second half of January till the second part of May. After this precipitation figures rapidly increase. June is the wettest month with almost 300 millimeters of rain. Relatively high humidity figures in June, July and August make things feel muggy. Temperatures during the night are pleasant, about 20 degrees Celsius.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
