...Gale Warning in the South-Central Caribbean...

Fresh to strong trade winds will continue in the south-central Caribbean through Wednesday night and increase to at or near gale-force near the coast of Colombia each night. For additional information on all of these warning areas, please read the High Seas Forecast product under the AWIPS/WMO headers HSFAT2/FZNT02 KNHC.

...The Caribbean Sea...

Quiet weather prevails across the Caribbean. Only typical patches of low clouds and isolated showers exist in a few spots. The trade winds are strongest over the central Caribbean. A Gale is presently ongoing along the coast of N Colombia.

Fresh to strong trade winds will continue over the S central Caribbean Sea through Wednesday night and increase to near gale or 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 will enter the NW Caribbean Sea later this morning, then move SE and extend from central Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras tonight. The front will weaken but still extend from SE Cuba to the NW and N central coast of Honduras on Monday night, and then start to weaken and drift N from Cuba westward from Tuesday morning until Tuesday night. Fresh to strong NW to N winds and seas to 8 ft are expected W of the front, from Sunday morning until Monday night. Strong high pres building over the western Atlc will increase the pressure gradient over the basin Tue through Thu. As a result, strong winds will affect almost all of the eastern and central Caribbean during this time frame.
