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.

The Caribbean winds coming in from the ESE, with a lot of cloud out at sea, a trace of warmer air coming up from the south causing a line of heavier cloud over southern Belize and probably some rain.

Looks as if today will have a fair amount of sunshine and clouds, with some causing a few scattered showers.
