The Caribbean Sea
There is a
Gale Warning in the south-central Caribbean. Latest scatterometer data depicts gale-force winds across the
south-central Caribbean within 90 nm of the Colombia coast. Fresh
to strong trades are noted in the Gulf of Honduras, across the
approach to the WindWard Passage, south of Hispaniola, southwest
of Puerto Rico and in the central Caribbean. Moderate to fresh
trades prevail elsewhere in the basin. Seas are in the 8-9 ft
range in the central Caribbean, the highest offshore of northern
Colombia, and mainly in the 5-7 ft range elsewhere. Fair weather
conditions prevail across the region, with quick-moving showers
embedded in the trade wind flow.
High pressure across the Atlantic will continue to
support fresh to strong trade winds over south-central Caribbean
through the forecast period, with winds pulsing to gale-force
near the coast of Colombia at night. Fresh to strong winds will
continue in the Gulf of Honduras through early Mon, and in the
Windward Passage through Tue night.
