Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

The gradient between high pressure in the Atlantic and lower pressure over South America is maintaining moderate to fresh easterlies in the central and eastern Caribbean. Winds are light to gentle in the NW Caribbean, where a surface trough is analyzed along 82W. Seas are 5 to 8 ft in the central and eastern Caribbean and 2 to 4 ft in the northwest Caribbean. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are observed in the SW Caribbean along the monsoon trough.

For the forecast, surface ridging over the western Atlantic will continue to support moderate to fresh trade winds across the east and central Caribbean through mid week, with fresh to strong winds pulsing off Venezuela and northwest Colombia. Winds and seas across the basin may increase through late week as the ridge strengthens and broad low pressure forms over northern Central America.

Looking ahead, a broad area of low pressure is expected to form over northern Central America by the end of the week. Winds and seas across the basin may increase through late week as this broad low pressure forms and the ridge north of the area strengthens. Moist onshore flow may also promote heavy rainfall across northern Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula by late week.

Possible cyclonic development off the coast of Quintana Roo

The population and maritime navigation of the Yucat�n Peninsula are advised to stay informed over the next few days, as during the weekend a possible cyclonic development is forecast off the coasts of Quintana Roo.

The GFS weather forecast model shows that over the next few days a broad area of clouds will develop with the potential for cyclonic development over the Northwest Caribbean Sea.

At the moment it is difficult to specify what its possible trajectory would be and what intensity it would have because there is still uncertainty among the other numerical models, as the days progress you will get a more accurate picture.

What will be likely for the states of the Yucat�n Peninsula is the severe thunderstorm watch over the weekend.

Being Quintana Roo and Yucat�n the most vulnerable states to flooding and dangerous surge.

It should be noted that the 2022 hurricane season for the North Atlantic which includes the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico officially starts on June 1st and will continue until next November 30th.

Still there is very little Caribbean air movement. There are many ITCZ (Inter Tropical Convergent Zone ) activity over Panama El Salvador and much of southern Central America now. . . The rainy season is coming, but not to us yet, but it is causing some cloud and again it caused some evening rain near our western border last night, and could again tonight.

Looks as if today will be very similar to the last few days, sun and cloud and little or no rain, except near the mountains. No rain on the radar.

Last Night 24 °C 76 °F Yesterday max. 35 °C 95 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
