The Caribbean Sea

There are two tropical waves in the Atlantic, and two in the Caribbean. An upper-level trough axis extending from the SE Bahamas across eastern Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras is supporting isolated showers and tstorms over the NW Caribbean, while earlier convection across Haiti and Cuba has ended. The east Pacific monsoon trough, situated over the SW Caribbean along 11N, is inducing scattered moderate isolated strong convection along it between 75W-77W, just off the coast of Colombia. Moderate trades prevail across the eastern and central Caribbean, locally fresh in the south-central Caribbean offshore of NE Colombia. Gentle to moderate trades are elsewhere. Seas are estimated at 4-6 ft over the south-central Caribbean and 2-4 ft elsewhere.

For the forecast, high pressure extending from the central Atlantic SW to the central Bahamas and will gradually weaken through Tue. A broad trough associated with a tropical wave along 61-62W will move westward across the eastern Caribbean today, reach 70W Sun night, move across the central Caribbean Mon through Tue, and across the western Caribbean Wed through Thu. This will yield mainly moderate to locally fresh trade winds across the basin thought late Mon. High pressure will begin to build in across the region behind the tropical wave Tue through Wed and bring a return to fresh to strong winds across the south central Caribbean.

Steady normal easterly Caribbean winds with some cloud, minor clashing up north causing a few small rain patches and a little coastal rain down south. The hurricane people think there could be a storm off Texas, that was due to the cloud coming down from the States over the past week, meeting high level winds from the SW, I don't think it will develop into anything, but their web site not working properly.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, with clouds developing during the morning, only a small chance or any rain.

Crown Weather:

A tropical wave now located over the eastern Caribbean is expected to push westward this coming week reaching the western Caribbean by about Wednesday. Once it reaches the western Caribbean, it is anticipated that this tropical wave may find itself in an environment that's favorable for development.

The model guidance are sort of lukewarm with their forecasts of development. Both the GFS model and the European model are hit and miss with its forecast of development with some forecast runs showing development in the Bay of Campeche and then the western Gulf of Mexico late this week.

At this point, this is something to not be overly concerned about, but it is something that I'll be keeping an eye on, just in case.

This Is What I'm Now Thinking For The Next One To Two Months Or So - I expect that the dry, dusty air across the tropical Atlantic will weaken over the next couple of weeks and give way to an increase in the organization of tropical disturbances pushing off of Africa. A large Bermuda High pressure system looks to set up leading to a potential path for any tropical systems to head either across the northern Caribbean or just north of the Caribbean and then towards the East Coast of the United States. My highest threat area for potential tropical storm/hurricane impacts for September and October continues to be an area from the eastern and northeastern Gulf of Mexico through the entire state of Florida and then up the entire East Coast of the United States as well as across Atlantic Canada.


A ropical wave approaches the Western Caribbean. It would be arriving on the peninsula between Monday and Tuesday.
