The Caribbean Sea

Westerly flow aloft is transporting mid to upper level moisture from Central America through Cuba, Windward Passage and Hispaniola. Scattered showers are noted over the northwest Caribbean waters mainly north of 15N and west of 75W. Moisture is forecast to persist across Cuba, Hispaniola, and adjacent waters this weekend enhancing the likelihood of some convective activity, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours. Subsidence and relatively dry weather cover the remainder of the basin. The Saharan Air Layer product from CIMSS shows that this is partially due to some African dust that has reached this area.

Fresh winds will prevail over the south-central Caribbean, while moderate winds will continue over the eastern Caribbean and gentle winds over the northwest Caribbean. Fresh to strong winds will continue over the Gulf of Honduras Sat through Wed night.
