The Caribbean Sea

GOES-16 RGBs continue to show a thin layer of Saharan dust moving across most of the basin where strong deep layer wind shear prevails. This environment continue to suppress the development of significant convection in the region. However, abundant shallow moisture is across the basin supporting isolated showers and tstms within 90 nm off the S coast of Cuba. The monsoon trough supports similar convection within 120 nm off southern Panama. A tropical wave is in the W Caribbean lacking convection while an upper level low over the central basin support scattered to isolated showers in the vicinity of a tropical wave just W of the Mona Passage. See the tropical waves section for further details. Otherwise, fresh to near gale force winds in the south-central Caribbean are forecast to increase to gale force in the Gulf of Venezuela and off the coast of Colombia Wed and Thu, respectively. See the special features section for further details.
