The Caribbean Sea

There are two tropical waves currently impacting the eastern Caribbean. Relatively dry air covers the central and NW Caribbean. Deep- layered ridging is over Cuba. A 1016 mb surface high is analyzed near 23N83W. Scattered showers and tstorms cover portions of the SW Caribbean and Central America, including the waters near eastern Honduras and northern Nicaragua as well as the waters north of western Colombia and eastern Panama. The latest ASCAT pass from Sunday evening depicts moderate to fresh trades in the south-central Caribbean.

Moderate to fresh trade winds will dominate much of the basin. Long period northerly swell will starting pushing through Atlantic passages by early Tue. A tropical wave entering the central Caribbean will move through the western Caribbean by late Tue, and west of the basin by mid week. Scattered thunderstorms and gusty winds accompany another tropical wave currently impacting the Lesser Antilles. This wave will move through the eastern Caribbean today, across the central Caribbean through mid week, and into the western Caribbean by late week. Looking ahead, low pressure developing east of the area will move toward the Atlantic offshore waters of the Leeward Islands by late Fri, possibly as a tropical cyclone.
