Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical waves in the Atlantic, and two in the Caribbean.

A moderate pressure gradient from a surface ridge north of the Caribbean to lower pressure over northern South America is supporting fresh to strong E trades over the central Caribbean. Scatterometer satellite pass from overnight showed moderate to fresh E trades in the NE Caribbean and Gulf of Honduras. Elsewhere in the basin, gentle to moderate breezes are noted. Seas are 8 to 10 ft over the central Caribbean and 4 to 6 ft elsewhere. Outside of the convection associated with the tropical waves, dry air prevails across the basin, resulting in fairly tranquil weather conditions.

For the forecast, fresh to strong trades over the central Caribbean will continue through early Mon. Expect trades to become fresh to locally strong Mon through Wed. Fresh winds will pulse in the Gulf of Honduras on Wed.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

There are currently no organized tropical systems found across the basin at this time and none are expected to develop through at least early next week. Dry, dusty air continues to dominate the open Atlantic and no significant features support any development in the Gulf of Mexico or Caribbean.

While the entire basin remains quite tranquil for now, tropical waves coming off the African coast are starting to clear away some of the dry, dusty air and provide a boost of tropical moisture to the main developmental region of the basin. This trend is expected to continue into the middle of August, with the chances for tropical development increasing as a result during that time.
