The Caribbean Sea

A large cyclonic gyre, also known as a Central America Gyre, defined by a broad area of low pressure that covers Central America and the western Caribbean. Within this gyre, a surface trough is analyzed from 20N81W to a 1006 mb low near 15N83W to 11N84W. Satellite imagery shows scattered moderate to isolated strong convection across the central Caribbean between 70W-83W. Some slow development of this system is possible this weekend or early next week as the system drifts northwestward across the northwestern Caribbean and the southern Gulf of Mexico. A mid to upper level trough extending over the Bahamas and Greater Antilles will help advect moisture northwestward over the next several days. As a result, heavy rainfall is likely to spread over portions of Hispaniola, Jamaica, Cuba, the Yucatan Peninsula and Central America Friday through early next week.

A tropical wave is over the eastern Caribbean. Refer to the Tropical Waves section above for details. Large NNE swell generated from Leslie will continue to pass through the Atlantic passages into the Caribbean through the end of the week before subsiding.
