The Caribbean Sea
A cold front is entering the northwest Caribbean Sea, extending
from western Cuba near 23N82W to just south of the Yucatan
Peninsula to across the northern Yucatan Peninsula. An earlier
ASCAT scatterometer pass showed fresh to strong northerly winds
already arriving behind the front, with seas up to 8 ft near the
A moderate pressure gradient across the south-central Caribbean
between high pressure east of Bermuda and a 1006 mb low over
northern Colombia is producing strong to near-gale force NE to E
trades in the south-central Caribbean. Seas are up to 9-10 ft in
the area of the strongest winds. Moderate to fresh trades are
noted elsewhere in the Caribbean sea, except light and variable
winds are mainly north of 18N between Haiti and 79W. Seas are 5-7
ft in the north-central and eastern Caribbean with mainly 3-5 ft
seas in the northwest Caribbean ahead of the front. No significant
deep convection is occurring over the Caribbean waters, but
patches of scattered showers are possible in the southwest and
south-central Caribbean, and deep convection is noted over inland
portions of northern Colombia.
The cold front will move across the northwest Caribbean today,
then stall and dissipate across the northwest Caribbean through
Sat. Fresh to strong winds will follow the front, persisting in
the Lee of Cuba and across the approach to the Windward Passage
through the weekend. High pressure in the Atlantic will support
fresh to strong trade winds in the south-central Caribbean through
early next week, with the highest winds near the Colombia coast.
Moderate to fresh trade winds will prevail elsewhere across the
east and central Caribbean.
The cool air from the north has taken over the area strongly. But there is a trace of easterly Caribbean winds, presumably above it, which are probably the main cause of all that cloud over northern Yucatan and Belize and Guatamala. There is just a trace of the fast, high level air over Honduras and Nicaragua.
Looks like today will be a mixture of cloud, heavy cloud and some sunshine, mainly in the north, and could be more rain in some places. With two different air movements, there is the chance of swellups and heavy rain showers.

The cold front continues to advance over the Gulf of Mexico and its reaching the Yucatan peninsula, the front favors cloudiness, with weak to moderate rains over the east and south of Mexico for today, April 2. The cold front will continue advancing over the western part of Cuba and the north of the Central American countries with weak to moderate rains, especially rains will occur over the northern part of Guatemala, Belize, and the northwestern part of Honduras. A cooling in temperatures is expected.
