The Caribbean Sea
Strong winds continue within 90 nm of the Colombian coast, due to
the tight gradient between high pressure N of the basin and a 1007
mb low over N Colombia. Seas are 7 to 9 ft in this region.
Elsewhere across the basin, moderate to fresh NE to E trades
dominate, with seas of 3 to 5 ft, and no convection.
For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure in
the central Atlantic and the Colombian low will support near gale
conditions to pulse nightly through mid-week. Generally moderate
to fresh trades will prevail elsewhere. A cold front may approach
the NW Caribbean by Wed night.
