Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

An upper level trough extends from the central Atlantic southwestward to the eastern Caribbean and then westward to an upper level low center near 15N75W. Stable conditions generally prevail underneath of this troughing, except for very active convection described above associated with the tropical wave across the western Caribbean along 88W. Fresh to strong tradewinds dominate the central Caribbean south of 17N, strongest along the coast of Colombia and the Gulf of Venezuela. Seas of 7-10 ft are found across this area. Elsewhere moderate trades prevail across the basin.

The pressure gradient between weak high pressure over the SW N Atlantic and the eastward extension of the NE Pacific monsoon trough to Colombia will support fresh to strong tradewinds across the central basin through Fri. Strong trades will increase and expand across central portions over the weekend with the passage of a pair of tropical waves. Near gale-force winds are expected along the Colombia coastal waters and the Gulf of Venezuela Sat and Sun nights. Otherwise, moderate to fresh easterly winds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras and in the E Caribbean through Mon night.

A lot of high cloud around the western Caribbean and over much of Belize, causing rain in many parts. The easterly Caribbean winds are back and bringing the rain in, and several swellups over central Belize and other parts.

Looks like a cloudy day, with significant rain in many parts, more so in central and some southern parts.
