The Caribbean Sea

An upper level cyclonic circulation center is about 100 nm to the WSW of Jamaica. Upper level cyclonic wind flow covers the Caribbean Sea from the Mona Passage westward. This is the same upper level cyclonic circulation center that has been within 700 nm to 900 nm or so from what is now Hurricane Laura, during the last few days. A surface trough is along 27N70W in the Atlantic Ocean, to Haiti. Precipitation: widely scattered to scattered moderate and isolated strong covers the Caribbean Sea from 20N southward from the Mona Passage westward.

A tropical wave is along 91W/92W, from 16N southward, moving W 15 to 20 knots. The tropical wave extends from Guatemala southward, into the eastern Pacific Ocean. The monsoon trough is along 11N73W in NE Colombia, northwestward beyond central Nicaragua, through southern Honduras, El Salvador, southern Guatemala, along the coast of Mexico near the Gulf of Tehuantepec, and beyond 17N102W, into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Precipitation: widely scattered moderate to isolated strong is between Guatemala and Mexico along 98W.

Atlantic Ocean high pressure will shift southward, gradually, through the next few days. Expect an increase of trade winds in the central and northeastern sections of the Caribbean Sea. A tropical wave is expected to move across the eastern Caribbean Sea from Thursday through Friday.

At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Laura was located near latitude 26.1 North, longitude 90.7 West. Laura is moving toward the northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h) and this general motion should continue today, and a north-northwestward motion is forecast tonight. On the forecast track, Laura should approach the Upper Texas and southwest Louisiana coasts on this evening and move inland near those areas tonight or Thursday morning. Satellite data indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher gusts. Laura is forecast to become a category 4 hurricane today, and is expected to be a major hurricane at landfall. Rapid weakening is expected after Laura makes landfall. Laura is becoming a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center and tropical-storm- force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km). The estimated minimum central pressure is 973 mb (28.73 inches).

That HURRICANE LAURA has really spun up very fast in the Gulf, it went from low Cat.1 to Cat.3 over night, still sending some of its high level out-pouring's over us. The easterly Caribbean winds have now been able to return. They are also bringing in significant ITCZ swell up activity, now touching Honduras.

Looks as if we will have variable weather today, even rapid changes, sun, cloud, and the possibility of some rain.
