The Caribbean Sea
The latest surface analysis depicts a rather weak pressure
gradient across the basin. Overnight ASCAT data highlighted
moderate to fresh trade winds over the central Caribbean and
fresh to strong southeast winds in the Gulf of Honduras. It
revealed moderate trade winds elsewhere across the basin. Mainly
fair weather conditions are in place across the basin, except for
isolated shower and thunderstorm activity that is occurring over
the far southwestern Caribbean along the coast of Panama. Wave
heights are in the 4-6 ft range across most of the basin, except
up to 7 ft in some locations in the south-central Caribbean.
For the forecast, fresh southeast winds will continue over the
northwestern Caribbean through the period, while fresh to strong
east to southeast winds continue in the Gulf of Honduras. Winds
will pulse to strong speeds over a small area near the coast of
Colombia during the afternoons and at night through Thu. Elsewhere,
generally moderate to fresh east winds will change little through
