The Caribbean Sea

Upper level troughing extends over much of the NW Caribbean Sea. Scattered showers are in the Yucatan Channel. Broad upper level ridging is over the central and eastern Caribbean with westerly upper level flow, leading to fair weather east of 70W.

A surface trough is nearly stationary along 77W. Scattered moderate to strong convection is seen from 12N-17N between 74W- 79W. The trough will drift slowly into the western Caribbean over the next several days. A large cyclonic gyre is expected to develop over this area by Friday. Large NNE swell generated from Leslie will pass through Atlantic passages into the Caribbean.
