The Caribbean Sea

A tropical wave is along 69W, from 22N southward, moving westward at 15 knots. A 1007 mb low is analyzed along the wave axis near 15N69W. This disturbance is slowly becoming better organized, and a tropical depression is likely to form this weekend as the system moves westward into the western Caribbean Sea. The chance of tropical cyclone formation during the next 48 hours is high. Please the Special Features section above for more details.

A second tropical wave is about 240 nm west of the first wave along 73W, from 21N southward, moving westward at 10 to 15 kt. These two waves are expected to merge during the next 24 hours near 75W.

The eastern extension of the monsoon trough in the eastern Pacific Ocean is along 09N to 11N, from 73W in northern Colombia across Panama into Costa Rica. Widely scattered moderate showers are noted south of 13N southward and from 73W westward. Little change in the position of the monsoon trough in the SW Caribbean is expected through Sunday.

Developing low pressure along a tropical wave in the central Caribbean will shift westward into the western Caribbean, with widespread showers and thunderstorms expected. A tropical depression is likely to form this weekend as the system moves westward across the central and western Caribbean Sea. Heavy rainfall is possible in Central America early next week.
