The Caribbean Sea

A mid-level ridge over the Bahamas and Greater Antilles is producing subsidence and very dry air over the Caribbean Sea north of 13N, as shown by GOES-16 water vapor channels. In the SW Caribbean, satellite imagery shows scattered moderate showers and tstorms south of 12N between 75W-84W. Some showers also persist in the far SE Caribbean between Bonaire and the southern Windward Islands.

Earlier ASCAT data indicated fresh to strong E to SE winds in the Gulf of Honduras, with moderate to fresh trade winds elsewhere. Seas are 3-5 ft across most of the basin, except 5-8 ft in the Gulf of Honduras and 1-3 ft south of Cuba and in the far SW Caribbean.

For the forecast, fresh to strong SE trade winds will continue in the Gulf of Honduras through Wed night due to the pressure gradient between the Atlantic ridge and lower pressures over Central America. Moderate to fresh E trades will continue elsewhere across the basin through at least Fri night.

There is some easterly Caribbean air movement over at least the northern part of Belize, but there is some mid-level air movement up from the south and high level coming over from the west.

Looks as if today will be hot and sunny, and with some haze, no rain expected this morning, could be a swellup this evening.
