The Caribbean Sea

The GFE model for 250 mb, and the current water vapor satellite imagery, show an anticyclonic circulation center near 14N94W, in the eastern Pacific Ocean, about 150 nm ESE of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec of southern Mexico. Broad upper level anticyclonic wind flow spans nearly all of the Caribbean Sea. An upper level trough extends from the island of Dominica in the eastern Caribbean Sea islands, to a cyclonic circulation center that is in Gulf of Venezuela. Comparatively drier air is apparent in water vapor imagery across the entire Caribbean Sea.

Precipitation: Rainshowers are possible in areas of broken low level clouds, to the east of the line that runs from the Yucatan Channel to 15N80W to 13N70W.

High pressure north of the area will maintain fresh to strong winds near Colombia through Sun. Fresh to strong winds are also expected in the Gulf of Honduras at night through Wed. Smoke from agricultural fires in Central America could reduce visibility near the Yucatan Peninsula and offshore of Belize and Honduras.
