The Caribbean Sea

Two tropical waves are moving across the basin.

The eastern Pacific monsoon trough extends in the extreme SW waters between eastern Panama and northern Colombia. Scattered thunderstorms are noted from 09N between 11N between 77W to 81W. Showers and thunderstorms are beginning to approach the Lesser Antilles as a tropical wave approaches the region.

Fresh to strong tradewinds are occurring in the central Caribbean. Mainly moderate to fresh trades prevail elsewhere in the basin. Seas are in the 8-10 ft range over the central Caribbean, and 4-6 ft over the remainder of the forecast waters.

For the forecast, Atlantic high pressure will combine with the Colombian low to support fresh to strong trades over the south- central Caribbean through Tue. Pulsing fresh to strong E to SE winds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras at night through Wed night. A tropical wave currently located along 78W will continue to move W across the Caribbean today and enhance shower and thunderstorm activity. Another tropical wave will reach the Lesser Antilles by this evening and increase the likelihood of showers and thunderstorms through Sun.
