The Caribbean Sea

High pressure centered off the northern Bahamas is supporting fresh to strong winds and seas 6 to 8 ft off the coast of Colombia from the Guajira Peninsula to off Cartagena. Fresh to strong trades are also likely across the Gulf of Venezuela. Fresh trade winds and 4 to 6 ft seas are observed elsewhere across the south central Caribbean, with gentle to moderate trades and 2 to 4 ft seas elsewhere in the basin. Regional radar shows a few low-topped passing showers over the northwest Caribbean, west of the Cayman Islands. But no significant shower or thunderstorm activity is noted elsewhere. Dense smoke from forest fires and agricultural burning in Central America is reducing visibility over the Gulf of Honduras and near the Yucatan Peninsula. This smoke is dense at times, especially in the western Gulf of Honduras off Guatemala. Little change in the pattern is expected through the week.

Surface ridging over the western Atlc will maintain fresh to strong trade winds over the S central Caribbean, and moderate to fresh winds over the remainder of the basin through Fri night, except for the NW Caribbean, where gentle to moderate winds are expected. Smoke from forest fires in Central America will reduce visibilities over the Gulf of Honduras and near the Yucatan Peninsula.
