The Caribbean Sea
There are three tropical
waves moving across the basin.
Please refer to the section above for details on the tropical
wave moving across the basin.
Over the southwest Caribbean, the monsoon trough extends along
10N between 76W-83W. Scattered moderate convection is noted along
the trough mainly south of 10N. Scatterometer data depicts fresh
to strong trades prevailing across the south central portion of
the basin south of 18N between 70W-82W, while gentle to moderate
trades prevail elsewhere.
The Bermuda High north of the area combined with low
pressure N Colombia will continue to support fresh to strong NE
to E winds over the central Caribbean through most of the week.
Expect an increase in areal coverage of strong wind speeds
through Wed night, reaching as far north as Hispaniola adjacent
waters. Winds near the coast of NE Colombia and the Gulf of
Venezuela will pulse to near-gale force at times, through Thu
morning. Fresh to strong E winds will occur in the afternoons and
early evenings in the Windward Passage through midweek. Fresh to
strong winds are expected to pulse in the Gulf of Honduras Wed
night and Thu night. No tropical cyclone activity is expected
through the week.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
Tropical development is not anticipated through at least the end of this week, mainly due to a broad area of Saharan dust over much of the Atlantic basin.
There are a few waves moving westward through the basin, but none of those waves show any signs of organizing.
