The Caribbean Sea

The GFE model for 250 mb shows that a ridge extends from a southern Yucatan Peninsula anticyclonic circulation center, to a anticyclonic circulation center near 15N70W, beyond Trinidad in the SE Caribbean Sea. Broad upper level anticyclonic wind flow spans the entire area. Comparativel drier air is apparent in water vapor imagery across the entire Caribbean Sea.

Rain showers are possible, in broken low level clouds, to the east of the line that runs from 21N82W 17N82W 13N74W, and from 11N to 16N from 79W westward.

Strong E to SE winds will pulse at night over the Gulf of Honduras through Saturday night. A ridge across the western Atlantic will maintain fresh to strong trade winds over the south central Caribbean through Sunday. Moderate to fresh trades are expected elsewhere through Saturday.
