The Caribbean Sea

Gale-force winds are pulsing over the south-central Caribbean off the coast of Colombia. Also, large northerly swell currently affecting the NE Caribbean passages will continue through today. See the special features section above for details.

A stationary front extends across the far northeast portion of the basin from 17.5N60W to Puerto Rico near 18N67W. Isolated showers are noted across portions of the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and the waters south of Hispaniola and east of Jamaica. The latest ASCAT data depicts strong tradewinds over the central Caribbean from 10.5N-18N between 69W-78W, with fresh trades elsewhere from from 10N-19N between 60W-80W. Low-topped scattered showers are noted across the far west Caribbean waters from 16N-20N west of 80W.

Winds to gale force will continue along the coast of Colombia through 1200 UTC this morning. Thereafter, the pressure gradient responsible for the high winds will slacken, allowing winds to diminish to strong levels into mid-week. Elsewhere, high pressure building southwestward toward the Caribbean will result in strong northeast to east winds over much of the central and eastern Caribbean through early this morning, before the high moves to the east and weakens. As a result, winds will diminish across most of the area. Long-period N swell will continue to create very large seas and hazardous marine conditions for the northeast Caribbean passages through today.

The cool air and clouds streaming down from the north over most of the area, clashing with the Caribbean clouds causing a lot of rain out at sea, made worse by the high level clouds from the SW.

Looks as if this morning will be a mixture of sunshine and cloud from the north, but the rain in the Caribbean could easily move in over land later today.
