The Caribbean Sea

A weakening stationary front extends from the Windward Passage to 19N80W to 16N85W. Isolated showers are noted along the front. Scatterometer data from Wednesday evening indicate that a surface trough is present in the NW Caribbean from 21N82W to 17N85W. Isolated showers are near the trough south of 20N. In the eastern Caribbean, radar and satellite imagery show isolated showers from 13N-15N between 67W-71W.

Fresh to strong trade winds will prevail across the south central Caribbean with nocturnal pulses to near gale force off the northwest coast of Colombia. These strong trades will expand north across the entire central Caribbean on Fri and Fri night. The weak frontal boundary across the west Caribbean will dissipate early today. The surface trough over the NW Caribbean will move to the Yucatan Peninsula later this morning. A cold front will enter the northwest Caribbean on Friday afternoon, and dissipate over the NW Caribbean during the upcoming weekend. Fresh to strong winds are expected west of the front on Sat. Large north swell will reach the Leewards on Sat, and spread south through the northeast Caribbean passages during the weekend.
