The Caribbean Sea

A gale is along the coast of N Colombia. 10-30 kt tradewinds are over the remainder of the Caribbean Sea with weakest winds over the Yucatan Channel. Scattered showers are over the Caribbean S of 20N, moving W. In the upper levels, a ridge is over the Caribbean with axis along 81W. Strong subsidence covers the entire area suppressing deep convection.

High pressure north of the area will support fresh to strong trades across the central Caribbean through Thu night, pulsing to gale force off the coast of Colombia each night. High pressure will weaken north of the area Thu night, helping to diminish winds Fri and Sat. Long-period N to NE swell will move across the Tropical N Atlantic waters through Thu, then subside Fri and Fri night.
