The Caribbean Sea
A Gale Warning is in effect for the south-central Caribbean near
the coast of Colombia.
The most recent satellite derived wind data provide observations
of strong to near gale force winds near the coast of Colombia,
and fresh to strong winds across the Windward passage and in the
Gulf of Venezuela. Elsewhere moderate to fresh trades prevail.
Seas are 8-11 ft within about 90 nm of the coast of Colombia, and
6-8 ft over the reminder of the south-central Caribbean,
including the Caribbean waters of eastern Panama. Seas of 4-6 ft
are noted elsewhere across the east and central Caribbean, with
mainly seas of 3-5 ft in the NW part of the basin.
A line of showers with embedded thunderstorms crosses the Windward
passage and extends across northern Jamaica in association with
the remnants of a frontal boundary. NE winds between the Bahamas
and Cuba are transporting some low level clouds with possible
showers across eastern Cuba. Elsewhere, shallow moisture embedded
in the trade wind flow will continue to move across the basin
producing isolated to scattered passing showers.
For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure
building across the W Atlantic and the Colombian low will support
pulsing winds to minimal gale force across the south-central
Caribbean, particularly within about 90 nm of the coast of
Colombia at night. Seas will build to 10-12 ft with these winds.
These marine conditions are expected tonight and Thu night. The
aerial extent of the fresh to strong trades will increase today
and persist through Fri, covering mainly the waters between 70W
and 80W. Generally moderate to fresh trades will prevail
