The Caribbean Sea

An upper level low is centered over W Cuba near 22N84W. Scattered showers are over the Straits of Florida, the Yucatan Channel, and W Cuba. Broad upper level ridging is over the central and eastern Caribbean with westerly flow.

The tropical wave along 76W is the primary weather producer in the Caribbean Sea. See above. Furthermore, the eastern extent of the E Pacific monsoon trough is producing widely scattered moderate convection over Costa Rica, Panama, and N Colombia.

Moderate to fresh winds will persist in the central and eastern sections of the Caribbean Sea through Tuesday morning. Gentle to moderate winds will dominate the entire basin during the remainder of the period. A surface low pressure center is forecast to develop off the coast of Nicaragua on Thursday, and it is expected to track NNE to the NW corner of the Caribbean Sea next weekend.
