Western Caribbean & Yucatan:

STRONG TRADE WINDS ARE DIMINISHING A LITTLE IN THE W
CARIBBEAN.

THE CHANCE OF RAIN SHOULD BE ON THE INCREASE IN
CENTRAL AMERICA N OF 10N LATER TODAY INTO SUNDAY AS
MOISTURE INTERACTS WITH A FORMING UPPER TROUGH OVER
THE REGION.

ARE FORECAST FOR A GOOD PORTION OF THE AREA E OF 80W
WITH PLENTY OF FAST-MOVING TRADE WIND SHOWERS.

Eastern Caribbean:

WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS/TSTMS ARE OCCURRING FROM
15.5N-17.5N E OF 63.5W DUE TO MOISTURE FROM THE LOW

A MID/UPPER LOW IS SITTING NEAR 15N58W AND REFUSES TO

THE INCLEMENT WEATHER OUT OF THE AREA.

TROUGHING ASSOCIATED WITH THE UPPER LOW SYSTEM
CONTROLS THE AREA E OF 70W WHILE MID/UPPER RIDGING
