Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front extends from the southeastern Bahamas southwestward to the Windward Passage and to near 19N83W. Atlantic high pressure stretches southwestward to just north of the northeastern Caribbean. The gradient between the high pressure and the front is leading to moderate to fresh east to southeast trades. Gentle to moderate northeast to east trades are elsewhere, except for fresh east trades north of 18N west of 85W, and gentle northwest to north winds south of 11N west of 80W. Wave heights are in the range of 4-6 ft, except for slightly lower wave heights of 3-5 ft north of 18N west of 75W and 2-3 ft from 11N to 15N between 72W- 76W and in the Gulf of Honduras.

Satellite imagery showers scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms over most of the sea east of about 80W, including Hispaniola and Puerto Rico. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are south of 17N west of 80W.

For the forecast, low pressure offshore the southeastern United States will drift westward, and move inland on Fri. High pressure will build westward in the wake of the low through Fri. The associated gradient will increase the trades to fresh to locally strong across the Caribbean Sea east of 80W starting Thu.

There was significant rain last night in north Guatamala, this morning a little bit of rain In Toledo. There is air pushing down from the north, deflecting and slowing down the Caribbean east winds, perhaps causing higher temperatures today.

Looks as if today will be similar to yesterday, but perhaps a little warmer, less wind, and a possibility of a little rain this afternoon, over the mountains.

Last Night 25 °C 78 °F Yesterday max. 33 °C 92 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
