The Caribbean Sea

A surface trough extends over the northeast Caribbean from 19N65W to 15N66W. Scattered showers are noted with this trough, moving westward into Puerto Rico. The latest scatterometer data depicts fresh to strong winds north of Colombia and the central Caribbean, including the Windward Passage. Gentle to moderate trades are noted across the remainder of the basin. Seas are ranging between 3 to 6 ft.

Fresh to strong winds will prevail over the south-central Caribbean through this weekend, with near-gale force winds developing each night near the coast of Colombia. Gale force winds are expected near the coast of Colombia by Thu night as high pressure builds north of the area. The surface trough over the NE Caribbean will shift westward and weaken today. Strong winds will persist in the Windward Passage and S of Hispaniola through Sun. Building high pressure over the NW Atlc will increase winds and seas over the NE Caribbean and E of the Leeward Islands Thu night into this weekend.
