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
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
