The Caribbean Sea
Gale-force winds are noted over the south-central Caribbean off
the coast of Colombia. Also, large northerly swell is expected for
the northeast Caribbean passages on Sunday. See the sections above
Strong to near gale tradewinds prevail across the remainder of
the basin west of 70W. Moderate trades are east of 70W. Isolated
showers are seen near the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico and
Hispaniola as well as the adjacent waters. Isolated showers and
tstorms are also seen over the Gulf of Honduras. The central
Caribbean is experiencing relatively dry air due to mid-level
ridging over the region. Elsewhere, a cold front that extends from
the SE Bahamas to the Dry Tortugas is spreading cloudiness and
showers along the north coast of Cuba.
The pressure gradient between strong high pressure centered
over the SE U.S. coast and low pressure over NW Colombia will
continue to support gales off the coast of Colombia through Sun
morning, with gale force winds again pulsing Sun night. This
gradient will tighten further as the high surges south through
tonight, leading to strong to near gale force winds over much of
the central and northeast Caribbean into Sun. For most areas,
winds and seas will diminish Mon and Tue, but a cold front will
move into the NW Caribbean Mon evening, bringing strong N winds to
areas W of 80W into Tue night.
