The Caribbean Sea
A broad upper level trough has reflected at the surface
enhancing convection over Hispaniola and the central Caribbean Sea
between 68W-78W. Abundant moisture will persist over this area
through tonight, supporting locally heavy rainfall and possible
localized flooding for portions of eastern Cuba, Jamaica and
Fresh NE winds are noted over the NW Caribbean, mainly N of 18N.
Scatterometer data indicates that the Colombia low has moved
northward and is centered over water near 14N77W. Gentle winds
prevail near the low. Farther E, moderate to fresh trades are over
the E Caribbean, where seas are 4-6 ft. Seas are 4-5 ft in the NW
Caribbean, except up to 6 ft in the Yucatan Channel. Seas are 3-4
For the forecast, a stationary front extending from the Straits of
Florida westward to well north of the Yucatan Channel will remain
north of the basin through Thu evening. This will bring fresh NE
winds across the NW Caribbean through the remainder of the week.
Pulses of strong winds are expected across the waters S of Cuba
at night, tonight through Fri night.
The cool air bubble is rolling past the western Caribbean now, but it is still having effect and causing some cloud and some rain down south. The easterly Caribbean winds are trying to get round and over the cold bubble and return to normal. The met office think the weather clashing might intensify tomorrow.
Looks as if today will be a sunny day, but with significant cloud and a small chance of the odd rain shower.
Last Night 25 °C 78 °F Yesterday max. 34 °C 93 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0 ") Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
