The Caribbean Sea

There are three tropical waves in the Atlantic, and none in the Caribbean. An upper level low over central Cuba is supporting several clusters of showers and thunderstorms from the Windward Passage to near Grand Cayman to off western Cuba. No significant shower and thunderstorm activity is observed elsewhere. Weak ridging north of the area is maintaining mostly moderate to fresh trade winds across the eastern and central Caribbean, with 4 to 6 ft seas. Gentle to moderate E winds are evident over the northwest Caribbean, where seas are 3 to 5 ft. A scatterometer satellite pass from yesterday evening indicated fresh to strong NE to E winds reaching the northern approaches to the Windward Passage. The same scatterometer pass did not show strong winds pulsing off Colombia at the time of the pass, but subsequent ship observations indicated 25 to 30 kt pulsing off Colombia during the early morning.

For the forecast, moderate to fresh winds and slight to moderate seas are expected across the area through late Sun, except for pulsing fresh winds every evening over the waters off Colombia. Looking ahead, winds and seas will build over the south-central Caribbean early next week following a tropical wave moving across the basin.

For folks who wonder why the Atlantic is so calm in the last few days, we first see a lot of dust activity from the Sahara and dry air together with the combination of the suppressed phase which greatly affected the formation of thunderstorms, rains and from tropical development. Dust from the Sahara is normal for these times.

But we will see by mid-August if the cyclonic formation is activated, because as of today we are entering what is the positive phase or favorable MJO, which will help the formation of tropical wave activity and storms to conclude the hurricane season.

The easterly Caribbean winds have some small areas of cloud in them, and there is high level from the NW which is causing some clashing and rain areas, mainly in the north.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, with clouds building and a small chance of rain showers.
