The Caribbean Sea
A cold front stretches from western Cuba to Belize. Scattered
moderate to isolated strong convection is noted from 16N to 22N W
of 83W. Elsewhere across the basin, generally moderate trades and
dry conditions prevail. Sea are 2 to 5 ft.
The monsoon trough is along 09N from the Costa Rica-Panama border
to northern Colombia. localized winds N of this trough offshore
Colombia are fresh to strong. Seas in this zone of higher wind are
6 to 8 ft.
High pressure N of the area will support fresh trades into
tonight over the south-central Caribbean, with pulses to strong
off NE Colombia. Gentle to moderate winds will prevail elsewhere.
A weak cold front in the far NW Carribbean will stall tonight from
Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras, then dissipate Tue. Moderate to
fresh NE winds are likely behind this front.
The cool air has stopped coming down and the easterly Caribbean air has taken over, so clashing from that causing a blanket of cloud over most of the Yucatan, made heavier by the high level cloud from the SW. This is all causing a lot of rain, presently all out at sea, by moving in towards us. ( The rain picture 3 hours old )
Looks as if today will be almost entirely cloudy for most and a high chance or rain showers later today.
