The Caribbean Sea
The pressure gradient associated with a dominant surface high
pressure ridge over the central and western Atlantic is supporting
fresh to strong winds over the central Caribbean this morning.
Overnight scatterometer data shows small areas of near gale-force
winds near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela, as
a tropical wave is currently moving across the area. Wave heights
are 8-12 ft within these enhanced trades over the south-central
Caribbean. Elsewhere, moderate trades prevail across the remaining
waters. Some scattered thunderstorms are noted near the Gulf of
Honduras in association with another tropical wave.
A tropical wave near 73W will move across the central and western
Caribbean through Sun. Behind this wave, strong trade winds over
the south-central Caribbean will pulse to near gale-force speeds
tonight near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela.
Winds and seas will briefly diminish Sun and Mon, then increase
again by midweek as another tropical wave crosses the region.
Elsewhere, moderate to fresh trades will persist across much of
the area through this weekend. The tropical wave over the Gulf of
Honduras will continue moving across Central America through
