The Caribbean Sea
A Gale Warning remains in effect near the coast of Colombia
through early this morning.
Recent satellite derived wind data indicate fresh to strong trade
winds over most of the central Caribbean and in the Gulf of
Honduras. Strong to minimal gale force winds are noted near the
coast of Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela. Fresh to strong NE
to E are observed in the Windward passage, mainly N of 19N. Moderate
to fresh trades are elsewhere. Sea heights of 8 to 12 ft are near
the coast of Colombia, with seas of 6 to 8 ft across the remainder
of the central Caribbean, and in the Gulf of Honduras. Seas of 5
to 7 ft dominate the eastern Caribbean, with seas of 3 to 5 ft
elsewhere across the basin.
Shallow moisture, embedded in the trade wind flow, is noted
across the area producing isolated to scattered passing showers.
NE winds over the SW Caribbean are transporting these patches of
low level moisture into western Panama and Costa Rica where light
rain has been reported.
For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure
located just S of Bermuda and low pressure over Colombian will
continue to support fresh to strong trades over the south-central
Caribbean near the coast of Colombia through Fri night. Fresh east
to southeast winds will pulse to strong in the Gulf of Honduras
at night through Fri night. N-NE swell will dominated seas E of
65W through Thu. A N to S aligned trough is forecast to develop
along 75W and extend across the far SE Bahamas Mon through Tue.
On Ambergris Caye this morning it's sunny, warm, and windy. The East wind blowing at 20 mph is creating a rough sea condition around our barrier reef. Small craft caution is in effect for occasionally gusty winds and locally rough seas.
