The Caribbean Sea
There is an
active wave in the central Caribbean Sea.
A strong wind surge continues across most of the central Caribbean
tonight behind the robust tropical wave along 80W. Seas are 8-11
ft across much of the area. Winds are moderate to fresh in the
eastern Caribbean with 6-8 ft seas. Winds are gentle to moderate
in the NW Caribbean with 3-5 ft seas.
For the forecast, the tropical wave along 80W will continue
moving quickly westward across the western Caribbean through Mon
night, followed by the surge of strong winds and high seas. Winds
and seas will begin to diminish over most of the basin early Tue
through mid week as the tropical wave moves west of the area. Another
tropical wave will move across the northeast Caribbean Tue and
across the central Caribbean Wed and Thu. Winds and seas will
increase again Thu over the south-central Caribbean as high
pressure builds north of the area following this tropical wave.
