The Caribbean Sea
An upper level trough extending from the W Atlantic to the SW
Caribbean continues to support scattered showers and isolated
tstorms between the Isle of Youth and Puerto Rico, including the
Cayman Islands, Jamaica and Hispaniola. Showers and tstorms are
also noted along the N coast of Venezuela and Colombia. A recent
ASCAT pass shows gentle trades across the basin, with moderate
winds in the south-central Caribbean. Moderate to locally fresh
NE winds are in the Windward Passage. Seas of 2-4 ft prevail
over much of the basin, except 1-2 ft in the NW Caribbean. Swell
from Hurricane Sam is affecting the NE Caribbean passages from
the Mona Passage to the northern Leeward Islands. The swell will
begin to gradually subside later today.
For the forecast, tranquil trades will continue over the
Caribbean through today. As high pressure builds in behind
Hurricane Sam, winds are expected to become moderate to fresh
across the central and E Caribbean beginning Sat and continuing
through mid week.

The easterly Caribbean winds have some significant cloud, which has been causing some isolated rain and a fair bit of rain in Toledo earlier. The high level is from the ENE and caused clashing in the south.
Looks as if another sunny day with significant clouds, the present few rain showers clearing up shortly, but could still be a few later.
