The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical wave in the Caribbean Sea. The majority of convection in the Caribbean is associated with the tropical wave described in the Tropical Waves section above, but convergent trades winds are leading to scattererd moderate convection in the NW Caribbean, including the the vicinities of Hispaniola, Cuba, and Jamaica.

The eastern extending of the eastern Pacific monsoon trough is along 9N from Panama to Colombia. Convection in the vicinity of this trough is primarily associated with the aforementioned tropical wave.

Fresh to strong NE to E trade winds, and wave heights that range from 7 feet to 9 feet, are in the south central Caribbean Sea. The comparatively fastest wind speeds are offshore NW Colombia and in the Gulf of Venezuela. The comparatively highest wave heights are offshore NW Colombia. Moderate to locally fresh trade winds and wave heights that range from 4 feet to 6 feet are elsewhere.

The Bermuda-Azores High located N of the area combined with the Colombian/Panamanian low will continue to support fresh to strong winds in the south-central Caribbean to the end of the week. Moderate to fresh trade winds and moderate seas are forecast across the waters near the Lesser Antilles through tonight. Similar wind speeds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras each night through Fri night.

The easterly Caribbean winds have patches of cloud, some significant, mainly in central and north areas, but there is fast high level winds from the NNW clashing over Belize, causing several small swellups and rain.

Looks as if the south will have a fair bit of sunshine, central and north les sun much more cloud and some rain periods.

Last Night 26 °C 80 °F Yesterday max. 33 °C 91 °F Yesterday Rain 5.0 mm ( 0.2 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
