The Caribbean Sea

There are two tropical waves in the Atlantic, and two in the Caribbean. Aside for the convection in the SW Caribbean Sea discussed in the Tropical Waves section, the remainder of the basin enjoys tranquil weather conditions. A weak high pressure regime also across the western Atlantic is supporting moderate to fresh easterly trade winds across the central and SE portions of the basin and the Gulf of Honduras. Seas in these waters are 3-5 ft. Elsewhere, light to gentle trades and seas of 1-3 ft prevail.

For the forecast, weak high pressure resides across the W Atlc to the north of Puerto Rico along 27N, and is producing a very modest pressure gradient across the basin. Two tropical waves across the Caribbean, along 75W and 81W, are inducing scattered to numerous thunderstorms across the SW Caribbean to the west of 75W this morning. These waves are expected to gradually merge by Wed as the continue moving westward. Expect very active weather with and ahead of these tropical waves today across the SW Caribbean and coastal Nicaragua, then shifting westward across Central America and the Gulf of Honduras tonight through Wed night. High pressure will strengthen modestly to the north of the region behind the tropical waves Tue night through Fri to gradually bring a return of fresh to strong trade winds across the south-central basin.

A tropical wave currently located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea is forecast to move across Central America during the next few days and emerge over the Bay of Campeche, where an area of low pressure could form on Friday. Some gradual development of this system is possible while it moves northwestward over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico through the weekend. It has a near zero chance of formation during the next 48 hours and a low (20 percent) chance of formation during the next 5 days.

The tropical wave will start to affect us Wednesday has a small chance of becoming a tropical cyclone after it has crossed us and emerge in the Gulf of Mexico.

Development before it reaches us is highly unlikely. However, it will bring heavy rainfall starting tomorrow, increasing in the night into Thursday then decreasing thereafter. Flooding is likely over the usual low-lying and flood prone areas"
