The Caribbean Sea
A surface trough extends south of the Yucatan Channel from 22N81W
to 20N87W. A trough also extends across the Windward Passage. No
significant convection is noted across the Caribbean at this time.
Strong winds are noted off the coast of Colombia with seas to 8
ft. Light to gentle winds prevail elsewhere with seas 3 to 6 ft.
For the forecast, strong winds will pulse offshore Colombia early
this morning and tonight with mainly moderate trades expected
elsewhere. A cold front will enter the NW Caribbean tonight and
move across the southwest Caribbean by Sat night. Fresh to strong
north to northeast winds will follow the front with rough seas
across the western portion of the basin through the weekend. Fresh
to locally strong winds can be expected over the Windward Passage
Sun through Tue behind the front.
The cold air keeps coming down slowly, now diverting the Caribbean winds out at sea but still easterly over Belize, above the cool front air, causing a fair amount of low cloud and fog. The easterly Caribbean winds have a few heavy cloud patches, some causing rain.
Looks as if today will be rather varied, some sunshine in places, more as the fog lifts, but then more clouds developing and the chance of some odd rain patches, perhaps more by this evening.
