The Caribbean Sea

A cold front extends across the western Caribbean from 19N75W to 18N78W, then weakens to near the coast of Nicaragua. Scattered showers are within 60 nm of the front and near the coast of Nicaragua. Moderate to fresh northerly winds are noted across the western Caribbean west of 77W, while moderate trades prevail elsewhere. Behind the front a surface trough is noticeable extending from the Yucatan Peninsula to 17N84W, with scattered moderate showers near the trough into the Gulf of Honduras.

The cold front is weakening and slowing down and will stall from eastern Cuba to the E coast of Honduras later tonight, then dissipate by Mon night. Strong high pressure will build in the wake of the front N of the area by mid week. This will result in strengthening trade winds across the Caribbean and Tropical N Atlantic waters. Gale force winds will affect the waters near Colombia beginning Thu night.

The Cold air from the NNE is still coming down, but, at the same time, the easterly Caribbean winds are coming in and crossing over the cold air. Resulting in thick cloud and a little rain last night, still some rain out at sea. The cold air over the southern States is moving eastwards, or sort of rolling past, allowing the Caribbean winds to start to take over again.

Looks like much of today will be thick cloud, a small chance of rain near the coast, but mainly just heavy clouds, perhaps a few glances of sun in the north.

The cold air still coming down from the NNE and the Caribbean winds from the east. Yet the surface wind is from the SW, but reducing and will later be replaced by the easterly Caribbean wind. The clouds, caused by the conflict are thinning in places, so there will be increasing glimpses of sunshine later.
