The Caribbean Sea

A tropical wave is over the eastern Caribbean. Refer to the Tropical Waves section above for details. A broad surface trough is over the western Caribbean, analyzed from 20N78W to a 1007 mb low near 17N81W to 13N82W. Satellite imagery shows scattered moderate convection prevailing across the western Caribbean mainly west of 75W. Some slow development of this system is possible this weekend while the low drifts across the northwestern Caribbean. A mid to upper level trough extending over the Bahamas and Greater Antilles will help advect moisture northward as the week progresses. As a result, heavy rainfall is likely to spread over sections of Hispaniola and Jamaica later this week and into the weekend.

Large NNE swells generated from Leslie will continue to move through the Atlantic passages into the Caribbean during the next few days.
