The Caribbean Sea

There is a tropical wave affecting the Caribbean Sea.

Scattered showers and isolated tstorms are elsewhere north of 15N between the Virgin Islands and Haiti. Upper-level ridging and subsidence are covering much of the central Caribbean.

The surface trough over Hispaniola will continue to move west- northwest, bringing enhanced rainfall to Hispaniola through today. The rains will affect eastern and central Cuba through early Saturday. A Caribbean tropical wave along 80W will reach Central America Fri. A tropical wave along 55W will move across the Tropical N Atlantic and eastern Caribbean through Sat night. Fresh to strong trade winds are expected in the south central Caribbean through Sat morning. A tropical wave in the Atlantic along 38W will reach the Tropical N Atlantic early next week.
