For Wednesday and Wednesday night is for cloudy skies with some showers, a few thunderstorms and periods of rain over most areas.
Sargassum Forecast from June 23 to June 30:
Satellite imagery continue to show high sargassum contents over our area and as a result the chances of sargassum landing on beaches across the country will remain high during the next few days. San Pedro has a high probability and a major impact.
Tropical Weather Outlook:
Tropical cyclone formation is not expected in the North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico during the next 48 hours.

The Caribbean Sea
Convection in the basin is associated with tropical waves. Winds are generally moderate to
fresh across the basin, with an area of strong east winds in the
southern central Caribbean N of Colombia. Another area of locally
strong winds is occurring in the Gulf of Honduras. Seas in the
basin are generally 4 to 6 ft, but an area of 7 to 9 ft seas are
observed where winds are strongest, off the Colombian coast.
Convection that had been associated with the eastern Pacific
monsoon trough that stretches across Costa Rica and into the far
SW Caribbean to around 74W at the coast of Colombia has
Winds and seas will increase today as high pressure to
the northern builds toward the area. A tropical wave located over
the central tropical Atlantic Ocean is producing disorganized
showers and thunderstorms. Some slow development of this
disturbance is possible after the middle of the week while the
system moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 kt, likely
reaching the Lesser Antilles by Wednesday night, and Puerto Rico
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
There is a robust tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic that is producing a small cluster of showers and thunderstorms. This wave is moving westward rather quickly, at about 20 mph. At this pace, it can reach the Lesser Antilles from Wednesday into Wednesday night. There can be some gradual development with this as it tracks across the Atlantic, and it is possible that this can gain enough organization to become a tropical depression prior to reaching the Lesser Antilles, but there is not much support for significant strengthening then. This can at least bring gusty showers and thunderstorms across the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday and Wednesday night, then across the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Thursday.
Another tropical wave, currently found to the southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands, will be monitored later this weekend for signs of development when it gets east of the Lesser Antilles. However, support for tropical development with this wave remains rather low at this time.
