The Caribbean Sea

CIRA LPW and GOES-16 water vapor imagery at the lower levels indicate that mostly shallow moisture is across the Caribbean, except for the far W basin. In the W Caribbean, a tropical wave support showers and tstms off the coast of Nicaragua and Honduras while an upper level low support scattered heavy showers and tstms over adjacent waters of central Cuba. In the SW basin, the EPAC monsoon trough support numerous heavy showers and scattered tstms within 60 nm of the coast of Colombia and southern Panama. A second tropical wave moves over the E Caribbean, however lacking deep convection partly due to strong wind shear and Saharan dry air and dust moving across this region. For further information on the waves...see section above. Otherwise, ridging N of the area is supporting fresh to strong winds in the south-central basin. The trpcl wave over the W basin will move to the EPAC Sun night while a new wave enters the E Caribbean.
