Hurricane Beryl’s aftermath could bring rain to Guatemala

The agency explained, in continuous monitoring of the meteorological phenomenon in the northeastern Caribbean, through an information capsule, that if the path continues, there will be an increase in rainfall starting next Thursday.

He explained that the area with a low probability of developing hurricanes during the next eight days is still under observation, which does not affect the country’s weather conditions.

For its part, the National Disaster Reduction Coordination, which declared an orange alert (higher than green and yellow and before red), described it as necessary to pay attention to possible changes in Beryl’s path.

The hurricane category is expected to continue as it approaches Belize, potentially bringing clouds and moderate to heavy rains to eastern Guatemala, especially in the Caribbean and Petén regions, starting on Thursday, the 4th.

He explained that the effects are expected to increase in the days from July 5 to 7 due to the system, especially in the transverse band in the north, west and south of Petén and Valles de Oriente.
