The Caribbean Sea
Weak high pressure centered north of the area over the northern
Bahamas dominates the pattern across the Caribbean Sea. Earlier
scatterometer and altimeter passes confirmed the presence of fresh
to strong northeast winds and seas of 7 to 9 ft off the coast of
Colombia with moderate to locally fresh trades and 5-7 ft
prevalent across the remainder of the south- central Caribbean,
including the Windward Passage. Elsewhere, seas of 3-5 ft are
noted, with the exception of the far eastern part of the basin
where gentle to moderate trades are observed.
For the forecast, winds and seas will increase through mid week across
the central Caribbean and the Gulf of Honduras as high pressure
near the Bahamas builds.
On Ambergris Caye this morning it's windy and the sky is overcast. The 18 mph wind from the East is creating a rough sea condition around our barrier reef. Today's high temperature is predicted to be 86 f.
