The Caribbean Sea
Gale-force winds are pulsing over the south-central Caribbean off
the coast of Colombia. Also, large northerly swell currently
affecting the NE Caribbean passages will continue through today.
See the special features section above for details.
A stationary front extends across the far northeast portion of the
basin from 17.5N60W to Puerto Rico near 18N67W. Isolated showers
are noted across portions of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and
the waters south of Hispaniola and east of Jamaica. The latest
ASCAT data depicts strong tradewinds over the central Caribbean
from 10.5N-18N between 69W-78W, with fresh trades elsewhere from
from 10N-19N between 60W-80W. Low-topped scattered showers are
noted across the far west Caribbean waters from 16N-20N west of
Winds to gale force will continue along the coast of Colombia
through 1200 UTC this morning. Thereafter, the pressure gradient
responsible for the high winds will slacken, allowing winds to
diminish to strong levels into mid-week. Elsewhere, high pressure
building southwestward toward the Caribbean will result in strong
northeast to east winds over much of the central and eastern
Caribbean through early this morning, before the high moves to
the east and weakens. As a result, winds will diminish across most
of the area. Long-period N swell will continue to create very
large seas and hazardous marine conditions for the northeast
Caribbean passages through today.
