The Caribbean Sea
Upper level anticyclonic wind flow covers much of the Caribbean
Sea, except for the southeastern corner of the area. An upper
level trough extends from the Atlantic Ocean, across the central
sections of the eastern Caribbean Sea, into eastern Venezuela.
The GFS model for 500 mb and for 700 mb shows broad anticyclonic
wind flow over the northwestern half of the Caribbean Sea. Broad
cyclonic wind flow, associated with an inverted trough, covers
the southeastern half of the Caribbean Sea.
The monsoon trough extends across northern Colombia and eastern
Panama into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Precipitation: isolated
showers are within 240 nm to the southeast of the monsoon trough.
Fresh to strong trade winds in the central Caribbean Sea and the
Gulf of Honduras will diminish this weekend, as central Atlantic
Ocean high pressure shifts eastward. A small area of fresh to
strong winds will persist near the coast of Colombia.
