The Caribbean Sea

Hurricane Delta is in the northwest Caribbean. A vigorous upper-level low centered over the eastern Dominican Republic is inducing scattered moderate to strong convection to the south and southeast of the upper low, over much of the eastern Caribbean. Fresh trade winds and 3 to 5 ft seas are noted over the eastern Caribbean, within light breezes and slight seas over the southwest part of the basin. Winds and seas will diminish in the northwest Caribbean through Thu after Delta leave the area. Building high pressure over the northwest Atlantic will support moderate to fresh trade winds mainly over the south-central Caribbean by late in the week.
