Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is one tropical wave in the Atlantic, and one in the Caribbean.

Scattered moderate to strong convection is seen across the waters of Venezuela S of 12N between 65W and 69W, and extend well inland. Otherwise, the remainder of the Caribbean Sea is dominated by a dry stable environment that is suppressing any deep convection. A sharp upper level trough extending across the central Bahamas to Honduras is supporting widely scattered moderate convection N of 16.5N between 73W and 76.5W.

A weak pressure regime results in moderate trade winds prevailing across the Caribbean, except for light to gentle winds in the SW Caribbean. Seas are 3-5 ft in the NW, south-central and southeastern Caribbean, while 1-3 ft seas are found elsewhere.

For the forecast, the weak pressure gradient across the regional Atlantic and Caribbean will lead to gentle to moderate trade winds and light to moderate seas through Wed. A deep layered trough is expected to develop across the central Caribbean Tue through Thu and will induce scattered thunderstorms across the basin E of 74W during that time. Fresh to locally strong trade winds and increasing E swell will move into Tropical Atlantic waters behind a tropical wave Tue night, and gradually shift into the far eastern Caribbean Wed night through Thu night.

The influence of a tropical wave that will cross the south of the region, will favor some light to moderate rains in the peninsula.

The easterly Caribbean winds are back in full control, but there is a blanket of cloud hovering over central Belize, slight traces of high level from the north, but there is a new high level coming across the Gulf from the NW, that could cause rain in the next few days.

Looks as if today will be sunny with some cloud for most of Belize, but remain over cast in central for some time, little or no rain.

Crown Weather:
Caribbean Sea Tropical Development Is Possible This Weekend Into Next Week

There's the very real potential for a tropical system to become a problem in the Caribbean Sea beginning this weekend and especially during next week. Both the deterministic model guidance and the ensemble model suite are pointing to the area around the central Caribbean Sea just south of Hispaniola will be the spot to watch for development.

The question then becomes what is going to be the catalyst for this potential development? It actually seems the development stems from a tropical wave that's now located to the east of the Windward Islands near about 50 West Longitude. It looks like this tropical wave will reach the southeastern Caribbean at the very end of this week and then reach the central Caribbean Sea at around the beginning part of next week.

There are a couple of concerning trends in the guidance since I last wrote late last week - The first is that there seems to be a trend towards more ridging over the western North Atlantic next week, which could allow for any tropical system to move towards the northwestern Caribbean Sea. The second trend seen in the latest guidance is for an increasingly more favorable environment for both development and strengthening next week in the western and northwestern Caribbean Sea.

Given that the Caribbean Sea is a climatologically favored spot for tropical development this time of year and that the upward motion pulse of the Madden Julian Oscillation is now located in the Atlantic Basin, I do think that it's actually fairly likely that we are going to see tropical development in the Caribbean Sea as soon as this weekend and probably more likely next week in the area around the central Caribbean Sea.


Weather analysis shows tropical wave approaching south of the Peninsula. Another tropical wave is approaching from the Central Caribbean.
