The Caribbean Sea
A surface trough extends across the central Caribbean from just
west of Haiti to a 1009 mb low near 17.5N76W, and southeastward
to near 13N74W. These features and related convection denote a
broad area of low pressure associated with former tropical cyclone
Isaac. Abundant moisture and atmospheric instability, that is
Father enhanced by the tail-end of a central Atlantic deep layer
trough that extends to Haiti and to near 17N85W, remains
entrenched across the central Caribbean and much of the eastern
Caribbean. This is resulting in scattered moderate to strong
convection from 16N to 18N between 75W and 76W, including the
eastern portion of Jamaica. Scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms are elsewhere between 65W and 80W, while isolated
showers and thunderstorms are east of 65W. The broad area low
pressure remains disorganized. Only slow development will be
possible during the next day or so due to proximity to dry air and
land interaction with Jamaica. By Wed, environmental conditions
are forecast to become less conducive for re-development to
occur. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains and gusty
winds will be possible over portions of Hispaniola, Jamaica, and
eastern Cuba during the next couple of days while the system moves
west-northwestward to westward toward the northwestern Caribbean
Sea. Gentle trades are west of the trough and low, while gentle to
moderate trades are elsewhere east of the trough. The central
Atlantic tropical wave will move across the tropical waters east
of the Windward Islands Tue and Tue night, and through the east
Caribbean on Wed and Thu accompanied by fresh to strong trades and
