The Caribbean Sea

Tropical Storm Zeta is in the northwestern Caribbean Sea. The tropical storm will continue in portions of the northern Yucatan Peninsula this morning. Heavy rainfall is expected across the Yucatan Peninsula, the Cayman Islands, and western Cuba today, which could lead to flash flooding in urban areas.

Previous convection over Central America from moist southwesterly flow over the area has diminished.

Away from the direct influence of Zeta, moderate to fresh trade winds are noted per scatterometer data across the remainder of the basin, with the exception of mainly light to gentle winds over the SW Caribbean.

A tropical wave has crossed the Lesser Antilles overnight and is followed by fresh to strong east winds. The wave will move across the eastern Caribbean through tonight, the central Caribbean through Wed night, and the western Caribbean by Thu night. Another tropical wave will approach the Lesser Antilles Wed night.
