The Caribbean Sea

A tropical wave is moving across the far western Caribbean, and a portion of this wave is entering Central America.

The eastern Pacific monsoon trough combined with diffluence aloft continues to enhance convection over portions of Panama and the waters of the southwest Caribbean from the coasts of Panama and Costa Rica northward to 13N and eastward to 78W. Plenty of moisture will persist over the extreme southwest Caribbean, Panama and Costa Rica through the weekend. Elsewhere, fresh to strong winds prevail over the central Caribbean. These winds will diminish across most of the basin by tonight.
