The Caribbean Sea
T.S. Nana. is in the Caribbean approaching Belize.
A small upper level cyclonic circulation is centered off
southeast Cuba near new. This not only is providing northeast
shear on Nana, but is supporting a few showers between Jamaica and
Haiti. It is likely also supporting the tropical wave moving into
the central Caribbean, and its associated convection.
Moderate to fresh E winds are noted south of Cuba, with to 5 ft
seas. Gentle to moderate E winds are noted elsewhere north of 15N
with light breezes south of 15N.
For the forecast, high pressure building into the basin in the
wake of Nana will support moderate to fresh trades over the
central Caribbean through Sun with gentle to moderate breezes
