The Caribbean Sea

GOES-16 satellite imagery shows that dense Saharan dust covers central and western Caribbean. The dry and stable air mass that accompanies the dust is helping to bring hazy conditions to the area, and is suppressing convection over these areas. The dust is a little less dense over the eastern Caribbean. There is enough moisture to support low topped tradewind showers across the eastern Caribbean.

Strong to near gale force winds prevail over the south central Caribbean. Fresh to strong winds prevail across the Gulf of Honduras. Moderate to fresh winds prevail across much of the rest of the Caribbean, except in the lee of Cuba where light to gentle winds prevail.

Fresh to strong trades will prevail across the south central Caribbean through the remainder of the week and weekend. Winds will pulse to near gale force off the coast of Colombia each night through Sun night with seas building to 12 ft and higher during the strongest winds. Fresh to strong winds are expected to continue across the Gulf of Honduras through Sat night.
