Marine Conditions:

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 eastward.

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.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have a breeze from the East at 10 mph and a calm sea state around our Barrier Reef. The sky is overcast with passing thunderheads and patches of sunshine.

Beautiful is right!!!

The Caribbean winds are easterly, with only a few small clashing with any high level winds, causing just a few small swellups. That very significan line yesterday fizzled out before it got to Belize.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, but with clouds developing this morning and a chance of isolated rain showers.
