Marine Conditions:


Phoenix Resort in San Pedro

The Caribbean Sea

Generally stable atmospheric conditions prevail across most of the basin due to sinking motion induced by a middle level trough extending from the Leeward Islands to Colombia. Scattered showers and a few small clusters of thunderstorms are seen across the southwest Caribbean south of 13.5N and west of 75W associated with a tropical wave moving across the basin. A narrow ridge across the western Atlantic to the central Bahamas is supporting moderate to fresh trade winds across the basin, except fresh to strong winds across south central portions and the Gulf of Honduras. Seas are 4 to 6 ft except 7 to 8 ft across south-central portions, north of Venezuela and Colombia.

For the forecast, a weak Atlantic ridge to the west of 55W will maintain a modest pressure gradient and moderate to fresh trade winds across most of the Caribbean basin throughout the week. Fresh to strong winds are expected across the south-central Caribbean, including the Gulf of Venezuela, mainly at night through Fri night. Fresh winds will pulse each night through the end of the week across the interior Gulf of Honduras. Atlantic high pressure will strengthen north of the area over the upcoming weekend to produce fresh to strong trades across much of the basin.

An area of low pressure is forecast to form just to the south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec later this week. Some development of this system is possible thereafter while it moves little or drifts northward. It has a near zero chance of formation in the next 48 hours and a low (20 percent) chance of formation in the next 5 days.

GFS model guidance continues to show possible tropical formation June 12-19, 2022 in the Western Caribbean Sea. Although the GFS model has been extraordinarily consistent with possible tropical development next week, other model guidance runs have NOT suggested any tropical formation and or influence from the Caribbean gyre. If tropical formation occurs, the next designated name is Bonnie.

The Caribbean winds are back properly, but there is also several mid-level and high level thing clouds around and a few swellups. So there have been small scattered showers in many places earlier this morning some continuing.

Looks as if today, and possibly the next few days will be a mixture of sunshine, cloud and scattered rain showers.

Last Night 26 °C 79 °F Yesterday max. 33 °C 92 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) Over Night Rain 2.3 mm ( 0.1 " )

A tropical wave in the south of the country and instability in higher levels of the troposphere will leave another afternoon of storms in several areas of the Peninsula. Another tropical wave is arriving tomorrow.
