Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A sharp upper trough across eastern Cuba continues to support scattered overnight showers and thunderstorms from the southern peninsula of Haiti to Jamaica. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are also evident north of the monsoon trough off the coast of Colombia and eastern Panama. A weakened subtropical ridge north of the area continues to support a pattern of below average winds across the basin. Moderate trade winds are noted over the southeast Caribbean, with generally light to gentle trade winds elsewhere. Seas are 1 to 3 ft over the northwest Caribbean, and 3 to 5 ft elsewhere.

For the forecast, Tropical Depression Eighteen is well to the east near 10.5N 36.4W 1008 mb at 0900 UTC, moving W at 13 kt. Maximum sustained winds are 30 kt with gusts 40 kt. Eighteen will will continue to intensify as it moves across the Atlantic, becoming a hurricane near 13N47W by Sat afternoon, and reaching 55W east of the Leeward Islands by Mon. Marine interests in the Leeward Islands should stay aware of the expected track of this developing system. Meanwhile, moderate trade winds will persist over much of the Caribbean into early next week, becoming fresh over the south- central Caribbean starting Fri night as high pressure builds east of the Bahamas.

Eighteen has changed very little overnight and has maintained tropical depression status but could become a tropical storm later today, a hurricane over the weekend, and a Category three hurricane by Monday.

At 5 a.m. AST, the center of the Tropical Depression Eighteen was located over the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean about 1860 miles (2995 km) east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands. The depression is moving toward the west near 15 mph (24 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue through Friday. A slower motion toward the west-northwest is expected Friday night and continuing into the weekend.

Tropical Depression Peter is no more. The National Hurricane Center is also issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Rose, located about 1200 miles west-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

Elsewhere over the Atlantic basin a gale-force non-tropical low pressure system (the remnants of Odette) is located about 600 miles west-northwest of the westernmost Azores. This low is expected to be nearly stationary over cold waters through Thursday, but it could become a subtropical or tropical cyclone while it moves southward over marginally warmer waters on Friday and Saturday. Strong upper-level winds are expected to develop over the system during the weekend, which would likely limit its development. It has a medium (40 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a medium (60 percent) chance during the next five days.

Beautiful photo!

Strange weather at present, just sort of is, that is cloud around, but no significant movement of any air. Possibly a very slight movement up from the south, even the high level clouds are hardly moving, but there is rain out at sea off PG

Probably a mixed day, mainly cloudy, but with some sunshine, and a small chance of some rain showers.

The trough induced by the proximity of a cold front in the Gulf of Mexico, will give rise to a Thursday with storms in the Yucatan Peninsula.
