Fresh to strong NW to N winds cover the NW Caribbean behind the front to the Yucatan Channel with seas to 8 ft. No significant convection is present over the remainder of the Caribbean. Tradewinds are fresh to strong across a large area of the south central Caribbean.

Fresh to strong trade winds will continue over the south-central Caribbean through Wed night. The winds will increase to, or near, gale force along the immediate coast of Colombia each night through Thu night. Moderate to locally fresh trade winds will prevail elsewhere. A strong cold front crosses the NW Caribbean from SE Cuba to NE Honduras. The front will stall and begin to weaken Tue morning. Strong high pres building over the western Atlc will increase the pressure gradient over the basin Tue through Fri. This will result in strong trades over most of the eastern and central Caribbean. Gap winds will affect the lee of Cuba, together with the Mona and Windward passages on Wed and Thu.
