The Caribbean Sea

There is a gale warning in effect for the south-central Caribbean. A dissipating stationary front extends across the northwest Caribbean from central Cuba to north-central Honduras. Moderate to fresh NE winds and 3 to 5 ft seas are noted over the northwest Caribbean. Gale force winds and 8 to 10 ft seas are noted off Colombia. Moderate to fresh trade winds are ongoing elsewhere across the southeast and south- central Caribbean, with 5 to 7 ft seas. Regional radars indicated isolated showers across the Windward Islands, the ABC Islands and Puerto Rico. Scattered showers are likely in the eastern part of the Yucatan Channel.

For the forecast, A stationary front reaching from eastern Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras will dissipate this morning. High pressure building in the wake of the front north of the region will bring increasing winds and building seas over the southeast and south- central Caribbean, with winds pulsing to gale force off the coast of Colombia mainly at night through mid week. Fresh to strong NE winds are also expected in the lee of eastern Cuba tonight through Wed night.

The Caribbean winds are from the NNE and bringing cool air down with them. There are two high level winds, the SW over the whole of the Yucatan and the other SSW from Honduras. They caused a very significant swellup over Guatamala last night but that has now dissipated with little or no rain in Belize. There is a lot of cloud around, some sun in Toledo.

Looks as if most of today will be cloudy, some heavy cloud, a little sun in a few places, a significant chance of some rain later today.

Mainly Caribbean cloud around, some high level. . . The chunky cloud over the mountains do not appear to be moving at all, they could be causing some rain.
