The Caribbean Sea
The monsoon trough extends from NW Colombia near 11N74W through
the Colombia/Panama border and into the eastern Pacific Ocean. A
middle to upper level trough extends from the central Tropical
Atlantic SW to the central Caribbean along 75W, producing fair
weather. At the surface high pressure centered across the NE
Atlantic extends W-SW to the southern Bahamas and is supporting
fresh to strong tradewinds across the south central Caribbean
south of 14N. Gentle to model trades prevail elsewhere. Widely
scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are seen within 120
nm of the coast of Nicaragua, and across the Yucatan Channel to
the Isle of Youth, Cuba.
The current Atlantic Ocean ridge will shift eastward and weaken,
diminishing winds and seas modestly tonight through Mon. Trade
winds will increase basin wide Wed night through Thu night as high
pressure builds across the W Atlc.
The first update from the National Hurricane Center for the 2021 Hurricane Season is today and the forecasts will continue until November 30. This used to be started the 1st of June, but due to storms each year in the month of May, the date was amended so that it starts the 15th of May.
So there will be more activity beginning today on our daily Tropical Weather Outlook, located here
