Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is a tropical wave moving across the eastern Caribbean. A weakening upper trough extends from over the Windward Passage to W Panama. Subsident northerly flow on the west side of this feature has suppressed the convection across the basin. Surface ridging north of the area is maintaining fresh trades over the southern Caribbean, reaching 25 kt off of Colombia. Gentle to moderate trades are noted across the basin. Seas range between 3-6 ft, with seas 7-8 ft north of Colombia.

A weak high pressure ridge across the western Atlantic will maintain fresh to strong trade winds in the south-central Caribbean through Thu before increasing there Thu night and Fri. Locally strong winds are expected tonight across the Gulf of Honduras, followed by pulses of fresh winds through midweek. Expect increasing winds, seas and active weather over the Tropical N Atlantic waters today through Tue with and behind a tropical wave that will cross the Lesser Antilles and the eastern Caribbean.
