The Caribbean Sea

A gale warning has been issued for the S-central Caribbean Sea. Earlier scatterometer satellite passes indicated a large area of strong trade winds between these pressure fields over the south central Caribbean, reaching near gale force off the higher terrain along the coast of northeast Colombia. Seas are generally 8 to 9 ft in the area of strong trade winds over the south central Caribbean, reaching as high as 11 ft off Colombia in the area of near gale force winds. Elsewhere moderate to fresh trade winds prevail with 3 to 5 ft seas. No significant showers or thunderstorms are evident on satellite imagery or regional radar, other than a few passing trade wind showers in the eastern Caribbean.

The strong winds will continue across the south-central Caribbean through Tue night, pulsing to minimal gale force near the coast of Colombia at night Sun through Tue. A cold front will enter the NW Caribbean this afternoon.
