The Caribbean Sea
Isolated showers are possibly occurring near the N coast of
Honduras and over portions of the east-central Caribbean, with
the trade wind flow. Otherwise, GOES-16 mid-level water vapor
imagery shows dry air and subsidence over the eastern and central
Caribbean. Strong winds are occurring in the south-central
Caribbean near the coast of Colombia. Moderate to fresh winds
prevail elsewhere over the central Caribbean, to the south of
Jamaica and Hispaniola. Moderate trades cover the eastern
Caribbean as well as the Gulf of Honduras. Gentle E winds are
found elsewhere in the northwestern Caribbean. Seas are 6 to 9 ft
in the south-central to southwest Caribbean, 4 to 5 ft in the E
Caribbean and 2 to 4 ft in the NW portion of the basin.
For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure
north of the area and low pressure over Colombia will support
pulses of fresh to strong trade winds across the central Caribbean
through Sun. The Gulf of Honduras will experience nightly pulses
of fresh winds through Sun night. Gentle to moderate winds will
prevail elsewhere through Fri before increasing slightly this
weekend. Fresh to strong winds will pulse over the weekend in the
Windward Passage, south of Hispaniola and in the lee of Cuba.
Present Condition: Partly cloudy including in San Pedro. A slightly moist airflow is moving over the area.
24hr Forecast: Some cloudy spells during the daytime and cloudy at times tonight. A few showers will occur mainly over southern areas. Elsewhere, showers will be isolated.
Outlook: For Friday afternoon through to midday on Saturday is for a few showers and isolated thunderstorms developing, increasing over southern areas on Friday night and then over most areas on Saturday morning.
The GOES-East - Central America Satellite is down this afternoon.... or it would be showing here!
