The Caribbean Sea

A sharp upper-level trough is over the northwest Caribbean, just east of the Yucatan Penninsula and north of Honduras. A surface trough is analyzed in this area, extending along 84W from 15N-22N. Scattered showers are noted from 16N-19N between 80W-86W. Isolated showers are noted across the remainder of the basin, moving quickly with the trades. Fresh trades continue across most of the eastern and central Caribbean, with strong trades near the coast of Colombia.

High pressure centered over the central Atlantic will maintain fresh to strong winds over the south central Caribbean through mid week, diminishing slightly by the end of the week as the high weakens. The highest winds are expected near the coast of Colombia at night.
