Another heavy thunderstorms is predicted for Thursday. Last night it began after dark and rained through the night. This is happening across the country, though earlier in the day in Antigua and the capital. Honduras and Chiapas, Mexico are also getting intense rainfall.
Rain, rain, go away, say the weather forecasters about weather at Lake Atitlan Guatemala for June. The El Nino effect is projected to cause less rain, maybe even a drought, in June and July 2014, so we should have sunny skies this summer (which is really winter here).
The past two nights have colder than usual for this time of year. Wind was extremely gusty yesterday, leading to rough boat rides around Lake Atitlan. Definitely bring a light jacket, long sleeve shirt or sweater.
Lots of white caps, so batten down the hatches if planning to take a boat across Lake Atitlan as of noon today. The weather has turned a bit cooler the past few days, even though they have been quite sunny.
