The Caribbean Sea

A dissipating cold front extends across the NW Caribbean Sea from 21N77W in central Cuba to near 20N88W in the northern Yucatan peninsula. Isolated showers and gusty north to northeast winds are associated with the front.

Broken to overcast low level clouds, and isolated showers, span the rest of the Caribbean Sea. The clouds and isolated moderate precipitation are moving with the easterly low level wind flow.

The dissipating cold front will move southward and weaken across the NW Caribbean through Saturday morning. Strong high pressure north of the area will support fresh to strong winds across the south-central Caribbean through Tuesday, with gale conditions expected near the coast of northern Colombia Saturday night. Large northerly swell will propagate through the NE Caribbean passages and into the Tropical N Atlantic waters through the weekend, with the largest swell expected Saturday night through Sunday night. A second cold front is forecast to approach the NW Caribbean on Monday.
