The Caribbean Sea

Two tropical waves are moving across the basin. An upper level trough extends from eastern Cuba southwestward to just east of northeastern Honduras. Water vapor imagery indicates plentiful moisture along and to the northwest of this trough, and it is where scattered showers are occurring. Scattered showers are also occurring over the southwestern Caribbean south of 12N between 80W-85W due to the interaction of a tropical wave, low-level wind speed convergence, and the eastern segment of the eastern Pacific monsoon trough that stretches east- northeastward to the far southwestern Caribbean along 09N.

A slighter tighter pressure gradient behind the tropical wave along 82W will help induce strong to near gale force northeast to east trade winds over the south-central Caribbean waters off the coast of Colombia and across the Gulf of Venezuela overnight. The strong trades are forecast to reach northward to 15N. Moderate to fresh trades will continue elsewhere through Fri, as little overall changes are expected with the present synoptic set-up through that period.
