A cold front will move in the NW Caribbean Sea on Wednesday evening. The front will reach from east central Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras by Thursday night; and then begin to weaken as it reaches from the Windward Passage to the Honduras/Nicaragua border by Friday afternoon; and from the central Dominican Republic to NW Haiti to 15N78W and to the Nicaragua/Costa Rica border by late Saturday.
