The Caribbean Sea

There is a surface trough over the Leeward Islands. An upper-level low is located over the Virgin Islands near 18N63W. This upper-level low could also be helping to enhance showers and thunderstorms in the area.

In the far southwest Caribbean, scattered moderate to isolated strong convection is noted south of 11N between 76W-82W, to include portions of Panama, due to the East Pacific monsoon trough.

High pressure north of the area is supporting fresh trade winds over most of the region. A trough over the Leeward Islands will move through Puerto Rico through late today, and to the north of Hispaniola through Wed. E swell will cover the tropical north Atlantic through mid week. Strong northerly winds and building seas will follow a cold front entering the Yucatan Channel late Wed. Fresh northerly winds and seas to 8 ft will spread across the northwest Caribbean into Fri behind the front, then diminish Fri into Sat the front stalls and weakens from eastern Cuba to eastern Honduras.
