The Caribbean Sea

There are two tropical wave in the Atlantic, and none in the Caribbean. Enhanced by an upper-level trough near central Cuba, convergent trades are generating scattered showers south of Cuba and near Hispaniola.

The Atlantic ridge extending southwestward from the 1028 mb Azores High continues to channel NE to E trades across the entire basin. Fresh to locally strong NE winds and 6 to 8 ft seas over the south-central basin, just north of Colombia. Gentle to moderate ENE to E winds and seas at 2 to 4 ft exist at the northwestern basin. Moderate to fresh easterly winds and seas of 4 to 6 ft prevail for the remainder of the basin, including the Gulf of Honduras.

For the forecast, the Atlantic ridge north of the region will continue to support fresh to strong winds in the south-central and portions of the SW Caribbean through Sat, then gradually weaken through Mon. A broad tropical wave will enter the eastern Caribbean today, and the central Caribbean tonight/Sat.

The storm area, called INVEST 99L is moving into the Gulf, leaving dry air behind, so no rain on the Radar this morning, but significant cloud around, so with the easterly Caribbean winds, we will have a fair bit of cloud.

Looks as if today will be a mixture of sun and cloud for much of the day, but probably no rain. No rain on the Radar

Last Night 25 °C 76 °F Yesterday max. 29 °C 84 °F Yesterday Rain 38 mm ( 1.5 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) Humidity 91 % Pressure 1003 mBar ( 29.6" ) Very Low
