...Caribbean Gale Warning...

High pressure over the tropical Atlantic continues to build westward across the Caribbean, which will tighten the pressure gradient over the coast of Colombia. This will result in gale- force winds pulsing each night across this area and south-central Caribbean through Sun. A gale is presently in effect until 20/1500 UTC within 90 nm of the coast of Colombia with seas to 12 ft. Please refer to the latest High Seas Forecast product, under AWIPS/WMO headers FZNT02 KNHC/HSFAT2, or at website https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/MIAHSFAT2.shtml, for more details.

...The Caribbean Sea...

Recent scatterometer pass and surface observations indicate fresh to strong easterly trade winds over much of the basin, with strongest winds just north of Colombia. Scattered quick moving showers are moving with the trades over the basin. Dry air in the mid-to-upper levels of the atmosphere continues to dominate the region.

High pressure north of the region will maintain fresh to strong trade winds over mainly the central Caribbean and north of Honduras, with gales pulsing off Colombia most nights through Sun night. N to NE swell will build over Atlantic waters E of the Windward and Leeward Islands on Thu and continue through Sun.
