The Caribbean Sea
A tropical wave is along 20N61W 14N63W 05N64W. Precipitation:
isolated moderate to locally strong is within 150 nm to the west
of the tropical wave from 05N to 07N. Widely scattered moderate
to isolated strong is within 300 nm to the north of Puerto
Rico and Hispaniola, in the Atlantic Ocean.
A 700 mb inverted trough extends from the SE Bahamas, through
the Caribbean Sea, to Colombia. The inverted trough
more or less coincides with the 73W/74W tropical wave.
Precipitation: isolated moderate to locally strong is in the
coastal waters of the Caribbean Sea side of Cuba from 81W
The monsoon trough is along 09N/10N from 74W in Colombia beyond
Costa Rica. Upper level cyclonic wind flow covers the SW corner
of the Caribbean Sea, from Colombia to Nicaragua, and into the
eastern Pacific Ocean. An upper level inverted trough extends
from Nicaragua southward.
A second tropical wave is along 73W/74W, from 22N southward,
moving westward 10 to 15 knots. Precipitation: widely
scattered to scattered moderate and isolated strong is in Haiti.
Scattered moderate to strong is within 90 nm on either side of
the monsoon trough, from Costa Rica to the 73W/74W tropical
wave. Widely scattered moderate to isolated strong is in the
coastal plains/the coastal waters of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. A
third tropical wave is along 84W/85W, from 19N southward.
Precipitation: isolated moderate is in the NW corner of the
Caribbean Sea, near the northern part of the wave.
The surface ridge that is in the W Atlantic Ocean will
strengthen from late Wednesday through Saturday. This will allow
the continuation of fresh to strong tradewinds in the south
central Caribbean Sea, increasing to near gale-force on Thursday
and Friday nights. Strong winds, building seas and very active
weather are expected in the NE Caribbean Sea and the adjacent
Atlantic Ocean, from tonight through Wednesday, as a tropical
wave moves across the area. These conditions will spread into
the central Caribbean Sea on Wednesday and Thursday. Strong
winds will pulse at night in the Gulf of Honduras from Friday
night through the weekend.
