Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Recent satellite derived wind data show moderate to fresh trades over the ABC Islands, near the entrance of the Gulf of Venezuela, and in the Gulf of Honduras, with mainly gentle to moderate winds elsewhere. Seas are 3-5 ft where the strongest winds are blowing with 1-3 ft elsewhere.

Showers and thunderstorms continue to flare-up over the Greater Antilles due to a combination of a tropical wave moving westward across the basin and an upper-level low currently located just S of eastern Cuba. A diffluent pattern aloft on the W side of the upper-level low is also helping to induce convection over most of Cuba and the NW Caribbean.

For the forecast, gentle to moderate winds will increase to moderate to fresh today, with strong winds pulsing during the overnights into the weekend offshore Colombia and in the Gulf of Honduras.

Nothing much has changed with 95L in the last day.

- Track and intensity remain uncertain
- Presently located about 2,000 miles East of Trinidad moving westward and expected to continue westward to west-northwestward over the next several days.

Showers and thunderstorms have changed little in organization in association with an area of low pressure located more than 500 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. In addition, earlier satellite derived winds indicated the system also lacks a well-defined center. However, environmental conditions are still expected to remain conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next couple of days. This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

There is definitely some mid-level air moving slowly up from the south. It is getting under the high level from the north and causing the north winds to produce a lot of fast moving cloud in the Caribbean.

Looks as if today will again, be mainly sunshine. There are a few clouds around and more will develop over the morning, but unlikely any rain, although could be a few thunderstorms this afternoon.

Storms are forecast in the Yucat�n Peninsula due to the influence of tropical wave 32 and our Mayan trough. Tropical wave 33 is coming on the weekend.
