The Caribbean Sea

A tropical wave is entering the eastern Caribbean. Refer to the section above for details. A broad surface trough along 81W is associated with a broad area of low pressure located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Satellite imagery shows scattered moderate convection prevailing between 70W-86W. This convection is enhanced by an area of upper-level diffluence. Some gradual development of the broad low pressure area is possible late this week and this weekend while the low drifts generally in a northward direction. A deepening mid to upper level trough over the northern Caribbean and Greater Antilles will help advect moisture northward as the week progresses. As a result, heavy rain is likely to spread over sections of Hispaniola and Jamaica later this week and into the weekend.

Broad mid-level ridging is over the east Caribbean with associated westerly upper level flow leading to generally quiet weather conditions east of 70W.

Large NNE swell generated from Leslie will pass through the Atlantic passages into the Caribbean waters.
