Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical wave in the Atlantic, and one in the Caribbean.

Scattered moderate convection is noted within 100 nm of the coast of NE Honduras, Nicaragua and northern Costa Rica. A surface trough extends from the Yucatan Channel to northern Honduras, with no significant convection at this time. The surface trough is quite evident in a recent scatterometer satellite pass, showing broad troughiness over the Gulf of Honduras. The remainder of the Caribbean enjoys fairly tranquil weather conditions thanks to a drier environment. Satellite-derived wind data indicate fresh to strong trades in the south-central Caribbean, mainly within 170 nm of the northern coast of Colombia. Gentle to moderate trades are found in the rest of the basin. Seas of 3-5 ft are present in the central and eastern Caribbean, with the highest seas occurring in the south-central portion of the basin. Elsewhere, seas range between 1-3 ft.

For the forecast, Hurricane Sam will move to 13.1N 48.0W this afternoon, 13.5N 49.3W Sun morning, 14.0N 50.4W Sun afternoon, 14.7N 51.5W Mon morning, 15.4N 52.5W Mon afternoon, and 16.3N 53.7W Tue morning. Sam will change little in intensity as it moves to 18.0N 56.0W by early Wed. Meanwhile, moderate trade winds will persist over much of the Caribbean into early next week, while fresh winds prevail over the south-central Caribbean as high pressure builds east of the Bahamas.

AT 5 a.m. AST, the center of Subtropical Storm Teresa was located over the Atlantic Ocean about 155 miles (245 km) north-northwest of Bermuda. It is moving toward the west-northwest near 6 mph (9 km/h). A turn to the north is expected later today, followed by a northeastward motion after that.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
At 5 a.m. AST, the center of Hurricane Sam was located over the tropical Atlantic Ocean about 1150 miles (1885 km) east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands. Sam is moving toward the west-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h). A slower motion to the
west-northwest is expected over the weekend, followed by a turn to the northwest on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher gusts - a category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Sam is a small hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km). The estimated minimum central pressure is 973 mb (28.74 inches). Additional strengthening is forecast to take place, and Sam is expected to become a major hurricane later today.

Another area of concern will be found to the south of the Cabo Verde Islands. A new tropical wave is expected to emerge off the African coast by Monday of next week. As this tropical wave tracks westward through a favorable environment, a tropical depression or storm may form south or southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands around the middle and latter part of next week.

The easterly Caribbean wind is re-establishing but is resulting in scattered clouds and some small isolated rain showers. Not much high level around at present.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with a fair amount of clouds and a chance of the odd rain shower.
