The Caribbean Sea

A strong cold front will reach western Cuba and the NW Caribbean on Thu, followed by fresh to strong N-NE winds. The front will extend from eastern Cuba northern Belize by Thu night. At that time, fresh to strong NE winds are forecast in the wake of the front and across the Windward passage. N swell will propagate into the NE Caribbean passages and Tropical N Atlantic waters today through Thu.

Pulsing winds to gale force are expected during the overnight and early morning hours near the coast of Colombia. Please, refer to the Special Features section above for details. Elsewhere, mainly moderate to fresh trades will prevail, pulsing to fresh to strong over the Gulf of Honduras through tonight, with seas building to 6-8 ft.

Shallow moisture embedded in the trade winds flow is seen across the basin producing isolated to scattered passing showers. Patches of low level moisture with possible light showers, carried by the trade winds, continue to affect parts of Honduras and Nicaragua.

A weakening frontal boundary will reach the northern Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola today bringing cloudiness and an increase in shower activity. In fact, satellite imagery shows the band of moisture associated with this front over the northern coast of Dominican Republic.

The Caribbean winds are being pushed up towards the Gulf. Nothing visible, but I suspect there is a cool air bubble over the Gulf and central Mexico, and now the western part of the Yucatan, causing the Caribbean winds to be blocked. I suspect nullschool is probably very wrong with its surface winds, although it is dated this morning.

Looks to me, as if today will be mainly sunny, after the fog has lifted in Cayo, with some clouds building later, but probably no rain.

It is and has been super windy (maybe 15 knots on Ambergris Caye. The sea is choppy and churned up as the wind has been high since yesterday afternoon. Temps are lovely and the sky is blue and clear.
