The Caribbean Sea

A rather weak pressure gradient is noted across the basin under very dry aloft as indicated by the strong subsidence signal in water vapor imagery. These means there is considerable lack moisture in the Caribbean, with the exception of the SE part, including the coast of South America, where scattered to broken low clouds with possible isolated showers are present. The TPW satellite animation detects this moisture. Overnight scatterometer data shows moderate to fresh east winds south of 14N and between 61W-78W, with the exception being a small area of strong northeast to east winds along and near the coast of Colombia. The scatterometer shows gentle to moderate east winds elsewhere, except for a pocket of fresh winds over the eastern part of the Gulf of Honduras.

Winds over the basin will gradually increase through the middle of next week as high pressure rebuilds over the western Atlantic. Fresh to strong winds will pulse each night during the forecast period beginning Sat night over the Gulf of Honduras and especially along the coast of Colombia. Fresh to strong northeast winds are expected through the Windward Passage Mon night and again Tue night.
