Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

An upper level cyclonic circulation center is centered over Hispaniola, with a mid-level trough evident along 72W/73W. Scattered moderate and isolated strong convection is noted from 12N-16N between 69W-78W. Additional scattered moderate and isolated strong convection is noted over western Venezuela and Lake Maracaibo as well as portions of northern Colombia. Very heavy rainfall yesterday and overnight may support localized flash flooding as long as the convection persists. Refer to products issued by your local weather service office.

Earlier scatterometer data indicated moderate to fresh trades across much of the basin, except light and variable winds in the SW Caribbean Sea in the vicinity of the monsoon trough.

Fresh to strong trades will pulse in the central Caribbean later this morning through Sat, with moderate to fresh trades continuing elsewhere. Trades will diminish basin-wide by the end of the weekend into early next week as high pres N-NE of the area weakens.
