The Caribbean Sea

A weak pressure pattern prevails across the Caribbean waters. Light to gentle winds and seas of 1-3 ft prevail across much of the Caribbean waters.

For the forecast, the weak pressure gradient across the Caribbean basin will continue to lead to tranquil marine conditions today. A cold front across the NW Atlc will move SE through early Wed before stalling from near 25N65W to the Straits of Florida. High pressure building in the wake of the front will bring a return to moderate trade winds to the Caribbean tonight through Tue and then moderate to fresh winds late Wed.

The Atlantic basin remains dormant with currently no organized tropical systems and no tropical development expected through at least the end of the week.

We are monitoring an expansive, tropical wave drifting to the west at 5 mph. This tropical wave, according to increasing model guidance, is hinting at possible cyclone development and or impacts in the upcoming week, October 21-23, 2021. However, as of Sunday, October 18, 2021 evening, the model signals for cyclone development are weaker.

The tropical season still has several weeks left as it runs through the end of November, so more tropical activity is possible farther down the road, but for the time being, all is quiet in the Atlantic.

The high level winds over Honduras are now working their way to being over Belize, and causing rain showers out at sea and in some coastal locations. The easterly Caribbean winds are still fairly light. Presently, a fair bit of fog or low lying clouds around, which will burn off as the sun gets hotter. No more cold front, that is gone.

Looks as if today will be a mixture of clouds and sunshine, with a high chance of the odd rain shower anywhere.
