The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front passes through 22N70W in the Atlantic Ocean, cutting across Cuba, to 25N86W in the SE Gulf of Mexico. Precipitation: isolated moderate to locally strong is from 18N to the stationary front between 60W and Hispaniola. Isolated to widely scattered moderate and isolated to locally strong is in the interior and coastal waters areas of Cuba.

The monsoon trough is along 10N/12N, from 73W in northern Colombia beyond Costa Rica, into the eastern Pacific Ocean. The GFS model for 250 mb, and the water vapor satellite imagery, show a trough that extends from the south central Caribbean Sea, toward the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea and central Panama. Precipitation: isolated to widely scattered moderate and isolated to locally strong is from 15N southward from 70W westward.

Northerly swell previously generated by Hurricane Teddy and an early season cold front in the western Atlantic will continue through Atlantic waters and Caribbean passages through this evening. Mainly moderate trade winds will dominate the basin through the forecast period, with the exception of fresh, possibly locally strong, winds near the coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela.
