Sea Surface Temperature (°f): 86
Outlook: For Friday and Friday night is for showers or thunderstorms to be isolated.
Sargassum Forecast from June 23 to June 30: Satellite imagery continue to show high sargassum contents over our area and as a result the chances of sargassum landing on beaches across the country will remain high during the next few days. San Pedro has a high probability and a major impact.

The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical wave moving across the central Caribbean and a second wave approaching the Leeward Islands.

Fresh winds are within 135 nm to the south of Hispaniola, and within 150 nm to the east of the tropical wave. Fresh winds also are within 60 nm to the north of Hispaniola between 71W and the northern part of the Windward Passage. The sea heights range from 4 to 6 ft within 350 nm to 450 nm on either side of the tropical wave. The monsoon trough is along 10N/11N between 74W in Colombia, and beyond NW Costa Rica, into the eastern Pacific Ocean. Scattered showers prevail along the trough.

A ridge of high pressure to the north of the area, combined with the low pressure that is in Colombia, will continue to support fresh to strong trade winds in the south central Caribbean Sea, and in the Gulf of Honduras, through this morning. The ridge will shift northward, loosening the pressure gradient, with a modest decrease in the wind speeds in these areas. A tropical wave, that is moving across the offshore tropical Atlantic Ocean waters, will interact with an upper level trough, which will enhance convection with locally higher winds and seas.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

There remains no organized tropical systems in the Atlantic basin at this time. However, there are a few areas of concern in which we are monitoring for possible tropical development over the next few days.

A strong tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms about 150-200 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. With moderate to strong wind shear in place across the region, tropical development seems unlikely with this wave as the wind shear should continue to prevent the thunderstorm activity from better organizing. Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds will impact the Lesser Antilles Friday and Saturday as this wave moves through the region.

Another area of concern will be located near the Azores Friday into the weekend. A non-tropical low pressure system is developing to the north of the Azores and is expected to move slowly southward over the next few days. As it moves southward, it will encounter some slightly warmer waters, which may allow this low pressure area to gain some strength. As a result, there is a low chance for subtropical development over the weekend near the Azores.

And finally, a strong tropical wave will emerge off the coast of Africa later today. While ocean waters are only marginally conducive for tropical development, wind shear is expected to be light in this part of the basin over the next few days. As a result, a small tropical depression or storm could form over the weekend or early next week as it moves westward through the open waters of the eastern and central Atlantic.

In the long-range, we continue to monitor for possible tropical development around the middle to end of next week in the far northwest Caribbean Sea or southwest Gulf of Mexico.

Vortex at high levels over Cuba and a new tropical wave arriving in the Caribbean, will join this weekend to leave more rains in the region.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical wave with cyclonic potential in the Atlantic. Models trying to track the cyclonic system that could emerge from Africa to the Caribbean Islands for the next few days. Not something concrete, this might vary, but we should still watch out.

WOW! gorgeous photo!!!

The easterly Caribbean winds have a little cloud in them, there has been scattered rain in quite a few places over night, mainly due to high level swellup activity over Guatamala, bringing wet high-level over Belize, that rain has almost stopped now.

Looks as if today will me more cloudy than yesterday and a higher chance of some rain.
