Fresh to strong SE winds continue north of Honduras in the NW
Caribbean, including Gulf of Honduras. Satellite imagery shows a
line of moderate showers, associated with the monsoon trough that

Colombia, along 10N between 76W and 79W. Isolated showers are
noted north of Venezuela in the SE Caribbean, and fair weather
conditions prevail elsewhere across the basin. High pressure north
of the area is supporting moderate to fresh trade winds, with
seas generally 4 to 5 ft, except north of Honduras, where the
stronger winds are producing 6 to 8 ft seas in the NW Caribbean.

over much of the basin this week. Fresh to strong SE winds will
