The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front from western Cuba to northern Belize is dissipating ahead of a cold front moving through the Yucatan Channel. Radar from Grand Cayman indicates a few showers are ongoing along these boundaries over the northwest Caribbean, moving to the northeast. Gentle to moderate N winds are noted over the northwest Caribbean, although winds are likely increasing near the Yucatan Channel. Seas are 2 to 4 ft over the northwest Caribbean. Farther south, strong trade winds are active off the coast of Colombia, mainly between Cartagena and Barranquilla, with 8 to 9 ft seas. Moderate to fresh trade winds and 5 to 7 ft seas are noted elsewhere across the Caribbean. Regional radar shows scattered showers moving quickly westward in the trade flow across the ABC Islands, as well as a few showers in the Windward Islands and Puerto Rico.

For the forecast, the cold front entering the Yucatan Channel will weaken as it moves across the northwest Caribbean today. The front will stall from eastern Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras tonight, then dissipate through Mon. High pressure building in the wake of the front north of the region will support the expansion of fresh to strong trade winds and building seas from off Colombia to cover most of the south- central and southwest Caribbean from Sun through Wed night. These winds may pulse to gale force mainly at night off Colombia starting Tue night.

The cool air from the north is pushing down stronger again, and is causing clouds over Belize to be coming down from the north, this is diverting the off shore Caribbean winds also from the NNE. There are high level clouds from the SW over most of the area and some also from the south over Honduras, and a trace of warmer air coming up from the south.

Looks as if today will remain very cloudy, some thin, some thick, which could cause some possible rain in places.
