Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front over the Greater Antilles is inducing scattered moderate to locally strong convection over and near these islands.

Scattered moderate convection associated with the Pacific monsoon trough is occurring off the Panama and Colombia coasts, S of 12N.

The upper level wind flow that is in the Caribbean Sea from 70W westward is moving away from an upper level ridge, and toward an inverted trough. The trough is in the western sections of the Caribbean Sea, from the Yucatan Peninsula toward northern sections of Colombia.

Northerly swell previously generated by Hurricane Teddy and an early season cold front in the western Atlantic has arrived in Atlantic passages and will continue into Thu night. Mainly gentle to moderate trade winds will dominate the basin through the forecast period, with the exception of moderate to fresh winds near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela.
