EASTERN PACIFIC AND SPREADING IT OUT ACROSS THE
CARIBBEAN AND CENTRAL ATLANTIC. THIS MOISTURE IS
DRYING OUT AS IT TRAVELS EASTWARD.

THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS EXPECTED TO BECOME STRETCHED
HORIZONTAL FROM PUERTO RICO/VIRGIN ISLANDS TO

Western Caribbean & Yucatan:

A FAIRLY WEAK UPPER HIGH IS LOCATED IN THE EPAC NEAR
9N91W. MOIST FLOW AROUND THIS UPPER HIGH IS GENERATING
SHOWERS AND ISOLATED TSTMS OVER COSTA
RICA...NICARAGUA...HONDURAS AND EL SALVADOR WITH A
STREAK OF UPPER LEVEL CLOUDS SPREADING TOWARDS THE E
CARIBBEAN.

HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE WEST ATLANTIC IS SUPPLYING FAIR
WEATHER ACROSS THE NORTHWEST CARIBBEAN. HIGH PRESSURE
WILL BUILD SOUTHWARD THIS WEEKEND TO MAINTAIN FAIR
WEATHER ACROSS THE REGION.

Central Caribbean:

STRONG SUBSIDENCE EXISTS WEST OF 74W NORTH OF 17N AND
OVER THE ANTILLES.

AT THE SURFACE...A 1015 MB LOW IS CENTERED 30 NM

A SFC TROUGH LIES SOUTHWESTWARD OF LOW TO 16N71W AND
NORTHEASTWARD OF THE LOW INTO THE ATLANTIC. SAN JUAN
DOPPLER RADAR SHOWS THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION OF THE
SYSTEM WITH SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS SPIRALING AROUND THE CENTER...MOST OF
THE ACTIVITY IS OFFSHORE OF PUERTO RICO. SOLID
MODERATE RAIN WITH EMBEDDED TSTMS IS MAINLY LOCATED
WITHIN 175 NM TO THE NE OF THE CENTER.

THIS AREA OF RAIN THEN MOVES WESTWARD OVER HISPANIOLA
WITH THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING ON THE WINDWARD SIDES OF
THE MOUNTAINS DUE TO THE ENHANCED LIFT FROM THE LOCAL
OROGRAPHY.

THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS LIKELY TO MEANDER AND
DISSIPATE IN THE NEXT DAY OR SO.

Eastern Caribbean:

OVER PORTIONS OF THE E CARIBBEAN UNSETTLED WEATHER IS
LIKELY TO CONTINUE AS A REMNANT TROUGH WILL HANG IN
THE AREA OVER THE NEXT DAY OR SO.
