Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front stretches from eastern Cuba to the Mexico- Belize border. This front will dissipate later today. Scattered moderate convection exists within 90 nm N of the front, with light to gentle winds N of the front and overall moderate trades over the remainder of the basin. A cluster of moderate convection is noted within 150 nm S of Haiti, otherwise no significant shower or thunderstorm activity is located in the Caribbean. Seas average 4 to 7 ft, highest in the south-central basin.

The monsoon trough extends from northern Colombia near 11N73W, across southern sections of Panama, and into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Convection previously associated with this trough has diminished overnight.

Generally moderate trades will prevail over the basin through late week, with nightly pulses of strong winds expected off the Colombia coast. A stationary front from eastern Cuba to near Tulum, Mexico will dissipate this morning. A cold front will enter the Yucatan Channel tonight and linger in the NW Caribbean through the weekend. Fresh to strong trade winds can be expected toward the end of the weekend and into early next week for the central and eastern Caribbean.

The high level winds and cloud are dominating the north areas and presumably causing significant rain patches up there, particularly over western Cuba. But further south, there is the slower moving easterly Caribbean winds with small mounts of cloud, probably no rain anywhere this morning. Presently, I am not seeing much change likely to happen during the day.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, with patches of cloud, probably little or no rain.

Still no signs of a cold front as such coming down, but the Caribbean east winds have got very slow, and there is perhaps a trace of air moving down from the NW. . . The end result is cloud is building over most of Belize. . . The say this could develop into thunder storms.. . They might be right, but at present there is not much indication of that happening, but things could change as the cloud builds more.
