Tropical Weather Discussion
Caribbean Sea Gale Warning: A tight surface pressure gradient,
that exists between surface high pressure in the western Atlantic
Ocean, and lower surface pressure in northern sections of South
America, should continue to support winds pulsing to minimal
gale force near the coast of Colombia through early next week.
The resultant wave heights with the gale force NE to E winds are
forecast to range from 12 to 16 feet, except building to 12 to 18
ft Mon. Please read the latest NHC High Seas Forecast under
AWIPS/WMO headers MIAHSFAT2/FZNT02 KNHC for more details.
...The Caribbean Sea...
Patches of broken to at times overcast low clouds with isolated
showers are quickly moving westward across the western and central
Caribbean N of about 14N, including waters adjacent to the
southwest tip of Haiti and waters just east and west of Jamaica.
Similar clouds with brief passing isolated showers are noted
over portions of the eastern Caribbean. Over the eastern
Caribbean, the moisture coverage has decreased since yesterday as
very dry air aloft has moved into that portion of the sea.
A tight pressure gradient between a high pressure system that is
in the western Atlantic Ocean, and lower pressure in northern
sections of South America, will continue to support pulsing winds
of minimal gale force near the coast of Colombia through early
next week. Fresh to locally strong trade winds are expected
elsewhere across the Caribbean Sea. The high pressure will be
reinforced by a stronger high pressure system on Mon. The stronger
system will bring increasing winds and building seas across the
eastern and central Caribbean Sea, and the Tropical N Atlantic
waters possibly into the middle of next week.
