The Caribbean Sea
Recent scatterometer data depicts moderate to fresh trade winds
across most of the eastern and western parts of the basin, with
fresh to strong trades south of Hispaniola to Colombia and
western Venezuela. Seas are estimated to be 6 to 9 ft over the
eastern and central Caribbean, with 4 to 6 ft in the northwest
Caribbean. High pressure north of the area is allowing for dry
conditions to prevail, aside from scattered fast-moving showers
embedded in the trade wind flow in the central Caribbean.
High pressure north of the area will maintain fresh
to strong trade winds across the central and eastern Caribbean
through the middle of next week. By that time, winds off
Colombia will pulse to near gale force at night, with gales
possible Wed night/early Thu. SE winds will increase in the Gulf
of Honduras on Wed night/early Thu also as a strong cold front
approaches from the Gulf of Mexico. Large north swell will
continue to affect the tropical N Atlantic waters, to the east of
the Lesser Antilles, through the middle of next week.
Present Condition: Mostly clear, light clouds in the south. Mainly fair conditions continue with a slight increase in shower activity expected for tomorrow night.
24hr Forecast: Mostly sunny during the daytime and clear to partly cloudy tonight. Showers will be isolated.
Outlook: Mainly fair conditions with only isolated showers expected for Monday afternoon. Then, a few showers will develop over northern and inland areas Monday night and spread to the coast by Tuesday morning, decreasing.
