Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There are three tropical waves in the Atlantic, and two in the Caribbean.

The most recent scatterometer data provided observations of fresh to strong winds across most of the east and central Caribbean with fresh to locally strong NE winds across the Mona and Windward passages, and in the Gulf of Honduras. Seas are 8 to 10 ft near the coast of Colombia. Convection across the basin is related to the tropical waves.

For the forecast, fresh to strong trade winds will dominate most of east and central Caribbean through midweek, with seas in the 8 to 10 ft range. Fresh to locally strong winds are also expected in the Windward passage through tonight. A tropical wave over the eastern Caribbean Sea is expected to form a broad area of low pressure over the southwestern Caribbean later this week.

Continuing to increase the odds of cyclone development. Today will tropical wave 28 is in our area. Pay attention to the wave in the Eastern Caribbean and the future formation of a Central American Giro.

Today is a bit similar to yesterday, the Caribbean winds coming in from the east, with some significant cloud patches, presently central Belize and extreme north, but there is high level coming down from the north and there has been a large area of ITCZ swell up over most of southern Belize this morning, with a lot of heavy rain. But it has brought the temperatures down.

Today
Patches of rain are still in the south and more isolated areas will affect much of Belize from time to time, presently south and central, later some north areas.

Tonight
Probably continuing with some rain over night.

Crown Weather:

Increasing Likelihood Of Tropical Development From The Northwestern Caribbean Into The Southern Gulf Of Mexico Late This Week Into This Weekend

An active tropical wave located over the eastern Caribbean today is expected to reach the western Caribbean by late this week where itíll find a favorable environment for development. This means that I think that a tropical depression or a tropical storm will very likely develop in the northwestern Caribbean on Friday or in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico on Sunday.

Beyond this, the track of this system is going to hinge on the strength and orientation of a high pressure ridge over the southeastern United States. The trend over the last 24 hours is for weaker ridging near Texas and a ridge that sits near the Carolinas. This means that potentially this tropical system could be steered further north than what was thought yesterday. So, a hurricane threat to the Texas coast and possibly parts of the Louisiana coast is possible around Monday or Tuesday of next week.

While the model guidance are in very good agreement in forecasting tropical development in the northwestern Caribbean around Friday. The model guidance, however, still disagrees as to its exact track once it moves into the Gulf of Mexico.

I think that there is a 90-plus percent chance that we will have tropical development in the northwestern Caribbean by late Friday or early Saturday. This means that the eastern Yucatan Peninsula will probably be affected by tropical storm conditions throughout Friday into Friday night.

I also think that there is a 90-plus percent chance that we will have a strengthening tropical storm and then a strengthening hurricane that heads west-northwestward across the southern Gulf of Mexico and then the western Gulf of Mexico from Saturday afternoon to Monday morning.

Where this system makes landfall early next week is going to hinge on the strength and position of an upper level high pressure ridge that will be located over the southeastern United States. The western extent of this ridge is going to be very important in determining whether this system will head directly west-northwestward into eastern Mexico or be turned to the northwest and thus become a threat to some part of the Texas coast or even some part of the Louisiana coast early next week.

Another factor thatís going to be very important is the exact location of where this potential system forms. If it forms in the area from the southwestern Caribbean to near the northern coast of Honduras and coast of Belize, I think itís likely itíd be guided towards a landfall in eastern or northeastern Mexico. On the other hand, if this system forms near the northeastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, it could be guided further north in the Gulf of Mexico leading to a potential impact to some part of the Texas coast or the Louisiana coast.

My thinking, at this point, is that the most likely track is for this system to develop into a tropical storm near the eastern Yucatan Peninsula on Friday and then move across the northern Yucatan Peninsula. From there, I think itís most plausible that this system will make landfall somewhere between northeastern Mexico and the middle Texas coast on Monday of next week as a hurricane.
