Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Tropical Storm Eta is in the Caribbean. Convection in the western Caribbean west of 73W is due to Hurricane Eta and its interaction with an old lingering frontal zone. Clusters of scattered moderate to strong convection are over E Cuba and Hispaniola. An ASCAT pass showed moderate to fresh trades across the eastern and central Caribbean, east of 75W.

Outside of Eta, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to cover portions of the W Caribbean through the end of the week, while strong to near gale NE winds remain over the NW Caribbean through early Thu. In the central and E Caribbean, the trades will diminish by late Thu and remain weaker than usual for the next several days.
