Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Deep layer ridging persists north of the basin. A tropical wave is analyzed between northeast Colombia and Haiti. The interactions between the tropical waves and the ridge are modulating the trade wind flow over the basin. Fresh winds are noted ahead of the tropical wave in the Gulf of Honduras. Trade winds off Colombia are temporarily suppressed by the wave axis position, but should increase through the morning. Moderate trades are noted elsewhere. Seas are 4 to 6 ft over most of the basin, with up to 7 ft in south central Caribbean. Scattered moderate showers and a few thunderstorms are active off eastern Panama close to the monsoon trough.

For the forecast, fresh trade winds will prevail over the south-central Caribbean through Sun, with locally strong winds expected to pulse near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela. Fresh to strong winds will pulse for the next several nights in the Gulf of Honduras region. The tropical wave over the central Caribbean will move across the western Caribbean through Sat night, accompanied by a modest increase in winds and seas. Another tropical wave will enter the eastern Caribbean by late Sat, and then across the remainder of the Caribbean through early next week. A third tropical wave may reach the eastern Caribbean by Mon.
