The Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum (CariCOF) says during the next 3 months, the peak of the wet, heat, hurricane season is forecast to bring a notable increase in rainfall and wet spells, heat waves and tropical cyclone activity in the Caribbean Islands and in Belize.

In its latest Caribbean Climate Outlook publication, the Barbados-based organization said this would result in frequent disruptions of outdoor activities and raising water levels in soils, rivers and reservoirs.

According to CariCOF, as of July 1, severe or worse shorter-term drought has developed in western Hispaniola and the majority of the Leeward Islands.  Severe long-term drought has developed in western Cuba, southern Hispaniola, eastern Jamaica, the majority of the Leeward Islands, Martinique, St Lucia and St Vincent.

The report further states that short-term drought by the end of October, is not expected to be a concern and long-term drought might possibly develop or continue for parts of Belize and St Vincent.
