Marine Conditions:

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 elsewhere.
