The Caribbean Sea

A 1011 mb surface low is centered just east of the eastern tip of Jamaica near 19N76W. Widely scattered moderate convection is within 120 nm of the low. Scattered moderate to strong convection is elsewhere along the north coast of Hispaniola and Cuba. Scattered moderate convection is off the coast of N Colombia from 13N-15N between 71W-74W. Scattered moderate convection is inland over S Guatemala, El Salvador, W Honduras, and W Nicaragua. Scattered showers are over Costa Rica, Panama, N Colombia and the SW Caribbean S of 11N mostly due to the East Pacific monsoon trough. Latest scatterometer data depicts light to gentle winds across much of the basin.

Large northerly swell will continue to pass through the NE Caribbean passages through the remainder of the weekend. A strong tropical wave along 59W is likely to form into low pressure as it crosses the Windward Islands tonight through Sun, bringing gale conditions to portions of the area. There is a high chance that this feature will develop into a tropical cyclone through the weekend, and a high chance early next week as it moves WNW or NW through the E Caribbean.
