Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A moist pattern prevails across the Caribbean in the wake of Nana. Satellite-derived precipitable water values show very high deep layer moisture over most of the basin. Clusters of showers and thunderstorms are observed in a large swath from the southern Windward Islands to almost northeast Nicaragua. under diffluent flow aloft. Showers and thunderstorms are also active west of Grand Cayman and south of western Cuba, on the east side of an upper trough. The track of Nana has temporarily interrupted the usual trade wind patterns in the Caribbean. This is leaving the normally rainy southwest Caribbean mostly rain free. Fresh trade winds and 4 to 6 ft seas are possible off southern Hispaniola, but elsewhere gentle to moderate winds are noted, with light and variable breezes in the southwest Caribbean.

E swell in the northwest Caribbean will subside through the morning. The Caribbean will gradually revert back to its normal pattern over the next several days with moderate to fresh trade winds mainly over the central part of the basin.
