Western Caribbean & Yucatan:

AN UPPER HIGH IS IN THE YUCATAN CHANNEL NEAR 20N85W
GIVING THE NW CARIBBEAN UPPER NE TO E FLOW.

SEAS ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING 7-9 FT IN NE/E SWELL BUT
SHOULD SUBSIDE TO 6-7 FT BY LATE THU.

Central & Eastern Caribbean:

THE UPPER LOW THAT WAS JUST N OF THE DOMINICAN
REPUBLIC HAS ELONGATED OVER THE PAST 6 HOURS AND NOW
IS AN UPPER TROUGH THAT EXTENDS FROM THE W ATLC ACROSS
HISPANIOLA INTO THE CENTRAL CARIBBEAN TO NEAR 15N76W.

10N82W.

STRONG SUBSIDENCE AND DRY UPPER AIR DOMINATE MOST OF
THE CARIBBEAN

SCATTERED SHOWERS S OF 17N BETWEEN 58W-65W.

AFRICAN DUST IS MOVING INTO THE FAR E CARIBBEAN GIVING
THE WINDWARD ISLANDS HAZY CONDITIONS.

VISIBILITIES HAVE BEEN REDUCED OVER THE SAME AREA DUE
TO WIDESPREAD DUST ORIGINATING FROM AFRICA. BARBADOS
