The Caribbean Sea

Scattered moderate convection prevails across the northwest Caribbean including Cuba. This activity will gradually dissipate today. Moderate trades cover the basin most of the basin, except south of 15N between 68W-72W, where scatterometer data depicts fresh easterlies.

Fresh winds will prevail over the central Caribbean through Sun. Then winds will decrease as the high pressure north of the region weakens. Fresh winds over the Gulf of Honduras will pulse to strong speeds at night. Smoke and haze from ongoing fires in Central America will reduce visibilities near the Gulf of Honduras during the next several days.
