The Caribbean Sea

A cold front enters the NW Caribbean from eastern Cuba near 21N77W to 16N85W and stalls from that point to northern Honduras near 16N87W. Scattered moderate convection is seen within 80 nm of this front mostly between 78W-84W. Scattered showers are also moving across the Windward Passage. An upper level ridge is bringing subsidence to the eastern half of the Caribbean which is inhibiting deep convection. The latest scatterometer data and surface observations depict fresh to strong northerly winds in the NW Caribbean behind the cold front with light to gentle trades across the rest of the basin.

The cold front will become stationary and weaken from the Windward Passage to northeast Nicaragua by early this evening. Fresh to strong northerly winds behind the front will shift southward to along and within about 180 nm east of the coast of Honduras this afternoon and tonight before diminishing to moderate to fresh winds on Monday to mainly moderate winds Monday night. A weak trough will drift westward toward the Leeward Islands through early next week. Low pressure on the north side of the trough is expected track northwestward across the northeast part of the Tropical N Atlantic waters Monday through early Wednesday.
