Tropical Weather Discussion

...The Caribbean Sea...

A dissipating stationary front continues from the 1013 mb low pressure center that is near 26N70W, to SE Cuba and 20N78W. A surface trough also extends from the 1013 mb low pressure center to 24N71W and 22N73W in the SE Bahamas. A surface trough, the remnants of an already-dissipated front, is along 18N83W 17N86W, to the Gulf of Honduras. Widely scattered moderate to isolated strong rainshowers are from 18N southward to Honduras between 83W and Mexico and Belize.

The monsoon trough is along 08N/09N between 76W in Colombia and 83W along the southern coast of Panama. Upper level anticyclonic wind flow spans the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea. A middle level inverted trough covers the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea. 700 mb NE wind flow also is moving across the SW corner of the area. Isolated moderate rainshowers are from 12N southward from 82W westward.

A surface trough, the remnants of a dissipating stationary front, is just north of the Gulf of Honduras along 17N83W to the southern coast of Belize near 16N88W. This elongated area of low pressure continues to support scattered rainshowers with thunder, as well as fresh to strong winds. The trough is forecast to prevail in this region through Sun morning. Strong high pressure building N of the area is supporting fresh to strong winds along the coast of Colombia. These winds and associated seas will prevail through early Tue as the center of high pressure shift eastward across the NW Atlc waters.

While nearly the entire tropical Atlantic basin remains unperturbed, there is a small chance that an area of low pressure located southwest of Bermuda and to the east of the Bahamas could develop into a tropical feature in the western Atlantic this week. However, this remains very unlikely to occur due to persistent strong shearing winds aloft, which will continue to inhibit any development.
