The Caribbean Sea
There are several tropical
waves moving across the basin.
Over the southwest Caribbean, the monsoon trough extends along
10N between 76W-82W. Scattered moderate convection is noted along
the trough mainly south of 11N. Scatterometer data depicts fresh
to strong trades prevailing across the south central portion of
the basin south of 16N between 71W-82W, while gentle to moderate
trades prevail elsewhere.
The Bermuda High north of the area combined with lower pressure
over N Colombia will continue to support fresh to strong easterly
winds over the south-central Caribbean through most of the week.
Expect an increase in speed and areal coverage from Mon night
through Wed night while reaching as far west as the Hispaniola
adjacent waters. Fresh to strong E winds will occur in the
afternoons and early evenings for the next several days in the
Windward Passage. Fresh to strong winds are expected to pulse in
the Gulf of Honduras by Thu. No tropical cyclone activity is
expected through midweek.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
There are no organized systems in the Atlantic basin at this time. While there are a few tropical waves crossing the basin, tropical development is not anticipated through at least early this week, mainly due to a broad area of Saharan dust over much of the Atlantic basin.
The broad upper-air low pressure system in the southwestern Atlantic that we have been keeping an eye on for the past few days still seems unlikely to develop, though it is producing a few clusters of rain and thunderstorms. While this area will be monitored for signs of tropical or subtropical development, computer guidance continues to suggest that development will not occur as there remains limited shower and thunderstorm activity at this time.
