Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

The cold front in the NW Caribbean has stalled and is now located from eastern Cuba through the Cayman Islands. Scattered moderate convection is noted W of 80W S of the front, with isolated strong thunderstorms off the coast of Nicaragua. Along and north of the front, strong NE winds are ongoing with seas of 8 to 9 ft.

Scattered moderate convection is along the monsoon trough at 10N from 73W to Costa Rica. A tight pressure gradient between lower pressure along the N coast of Colombia and higher pressure N of the Antilles is creating some strong NE to E winds off the coast of Colombia. Elsewhere in the basin, generally moderate to fresh trades prevail.

The stationary front in the NW Caribbean will weaken into tonight, then dissipate Fri. Fresh to strong winds and rough seas will prevail NW of this front through tonight. Fresh to strong winds will also occur through Fri across the south central Caribbean as high pressure moves E into the western Atlantic. Looking ahead, another cold front may approach the Yucatan Channel Sat night.

Even though the Atlantic hurricane season has officially come to an end, additional tropical development is possible through the end of December. One disturbance over the Caribbean that is close to land could become the next Atlantic tropical depression or storm, according to AccuWeather meteorologists. An area of showers and thunderstorms AccuWeather meteorologists have been monitoring since last week is showing signs of life.

Satellite images showed that the feature had a weak circulation Tuesday into Wednesday. There was another indication that potential development could occur, according to AccuWeather meteorologists. High-level clouds over top of the system were visible on satellite imagery -- a sign that air was rising near the disturbance's poorly-defined center.

If a complete cyclonic wind pattern develops about a center, a depression could be dubbed. If a clear center is established and winds reach 39 mph or greater, a tropical storm would be born.

On Wednesday, part of the disturbance's weak circulation was over land, but much of the system remained offshore over the southwestern Caribbean. Until the system fully moves over land, the risk of development will continue.

"There is a short window in which this system in the southwest Caribbean has a chance to become a depression or even short-lived tropical storm before it moves over land over Central America Thursday afternoon," Dan Kottlowski, AccuWeather's top hurricane expert, said.

The next storm to develop will be given the name Kappa, the next letter in the Greek alphabet.

Still a lot of cloud around, looks like there is some sun in much of the south and some in Corozal. The easterly Caribbean winds are still bringing patches and areas of cloud and there is still some high level from the SW clashing, causing some rain, but that is mainly of the north coast at present.

Looks like today will be warmer than yesterday and some patches of sunshine, but could also be some patches of rain, presently more likely in the north.
