The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical wave in the Atlantic, and one in the Caribbean. A tropical wave has entered the eastern Caribbean and is described more above. Scattered thunderstorms are noted from Haiti westward to between Jamaica, with similar convection near the coast of NW Colombia, in the Gulf of Honduras, and also offshore southern Nicaragua. Moderate to locally fresh winds are in the Gulf of Honduras and south-central Caribbean, as well as through the Windward Passage. Gentle to moderate winds are elsewhere. Seas are 3-5 ft in the areas of strongest winds, and 2-4 ft elsewhere.

For the forecast, gentle to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas will persist into Tue over the Caribbean as a tropical wave moves across the eastern and central portions of the basin. Winds and seas will start to increase from east to west starting late Tue as high pressure builds north of the area in the wake of the tropical wave. Northerly swell will propagate through the Atlantic passages early on Tue and will gradually subside late Wed.

The NHC has begun to watch this broad Tropical Wave over the main development region in the Eastern Tropical Atlantic where some forecast models such as the GFS and ECMWF show this area of disturbance as an asset or strong tropical wave over the Eastern part of the Caribbean while other models such as UKMET and ICON insists that this wave will form as a tropical depression or storm but weak approaching slightly toward the Caribbean.

A tropical wave will approach the Caribbean this week and bring a better chance of rain and thunderstorms. It will then move toward the Bahamas. It is surrounded by Saharan Dust, which will help prevent heavy development.

The easterly Caribbean winds are back to normal, there was high level from the north that caused some over night rain, and there are still a few places of clashing winds and small patches of rain around.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with a flair amount of cloud around and a chance of rain.

A trough to the west of the Peninsula will maintain the potential for rains on the Yucatan Peninsula today. Another tropical wave is already over the Caribbean Sea.
