The monsoon trough is along 07N/09N between 75W in Colombia and beyond the waters that are along the southern part of Panama, beyond 84W at the southernmost point of Costa Rica, and beyond into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Scattered strong rainshowers are along the coast of Colombia from 77W eastward, along the coast of Panama between 78W and 79W. Isolated moderate to strong rainshowers are elsewhere from 11N southward from 80W westward.

24-hour rainfall totals that are listed for the period that ended at 20/0000 UTC...according to the PAN AMERICAN TEMPERATURE AND PRECIPITATION TABLES...MIATPTPAN/SXCA01 KNHC...are 0.72 in Guadeloupe, and 0.06 in Curacao.

Strong surface high pressure north of the region will continue to support fresh to strong winds along the coast of Colombia and the gulf of Venezuela through Tue morning. Winds will diminish briefly, as a front passes to the north of the area. The winds will return again on Tuesday night, and continue through Thursday morning as a new ridge builds north of the area. Mixed NE and E swell over the Atlantic will continue to impact the waters east of the Lesser Antilles through Wednesday. Moderate to fresh winds will dominate the central and eastern waters the remaining of the forecast period.
