The Caribbean Sea

There are several tropical waves moving across the basin. Except for the Gulf of Honduras and adjacent waters between Panama and Colombia where scattered showers and tstms are observed, the remainder basin is under the influence of a Saharan Air Layer event, which is likely limiting visibility E of 80W.

The pressure gradient between the Atlantic ridge N of the area and lower pressure over northern Colombia will maintain fresh to strong trade winds in the south-central Caribbean through the weekend. Fresh to strong winds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras tonight and Wed night. A tropical wave over the western Caribbean will move out of the basin through tonight. Another tropical wave farther east in the central Atlantic will approach the eastern Caribbean by Thu night, and move across the central Caribbean during the weekend.
