The Caribbean Sea

There is a tropical wave along 70W. The pressure gradient between the Azores high and lower pressure associated with the tropical wave is supporting moderate to fresh winds across the eastern half of the basin, with fresh to strong winds occurring over the south-central waters. Seas range between 5 and 7 ft. Gentle to moderate E to SE winds are over the NW Caribbean, except in the Gulf of Honduras where winds pulse to fresh to strong.

The 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 Thu night. A tropical wave along 70W will continue moving west across the central Caribbean today.
