The Caribbean Sea
An area of scattered moderate convection is present offshore near
the border of Nicaragua and Honduras, from 13N-17.5N between
82W-85W. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are noted
between Cuba, the Cayman Islands, and Jamaica, likely due to some
weak upper level divergence. Scattered moderate convection is
noted over portions of western Colombia and Panama. Mainly
moderate winds prevail over the Caribbean. The exceptions are
fresh to locally strong winds in the Gulf of Honduras and from the
coast of Colombia to 13.5N, with light to gentle winds south of
11N. Seas are in the 2-4 ft range over the NW Caribbean, and 3-6
ft elsewhere in the basin.
For the forecast, fresh to strong winds will pulse in the south-
central Caribbean and Gulf of Honduras. Moderate to fresh trades
will prevail elsewhere, except light to gentle south of 11N. A
weak tropical wave in the eastern Caribbean is helping to induce
scattered showers and thunderstorms. The wave will reach the
western Caribbean Sun. The next tropical wave will move into the
eastern Caribbean Mon through Tue night. Scattered showers and
thunderstorms are expected over the southwestern Caribbean through
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
There are currently no organized tropical features in the Atlantic basin, and none are expected to develop through at least the next couple of days. These quieter conditions may not last much longer.
A broad area of rotation in the midlevels, sometimes called a gyre, is developing near Central America and the nearby waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean. This gyre is causing an increase in shower and thunderstorm activity across Central America into southern Mexico. As of now, the threat of development appears to be over the Eastern Pacific Ocean with the chances of development in the Caribbean r Gulf of Mexico remaining quite low through the weekend and early next week.
All interests in Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico should be prepared for flooding downpours and some gusty winds through the weekend, regardless of whether or not a tropical system forms.
