The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front extends from western Cuba to just south of the Yucatan Channel to north of Cozumel, Mexico. Fresh to strong winds are north of the boundary while seas of 7-10 ft in N swell are spilling through from the Gulf of Mexico. Scattered showers are possible near the front. A surface trough is generating scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms across the northwestern and west-central basin, including the Gulf of Honduras. Moderate to fresh trades dominate the remainder of the basin. Seas are 4-7 ft in the central Caribbean, 2-4 ft between Cuba and Jamaica, and 3-6 ft elsewhere. Gentle to moderate monsoonal winds with 3 to 5 ft seas prevail near Panama.

For the forecast, the pressure gradient between high pressure in the central Atlantic and lower pressure in the SW Caribbean will support moderate to fresh trade winds during the next several days, pulsing to strong in the central Caribbean this weekend. The stationary front near the Yucatan Channel will gradually dissipate through Sat. Fresh to strong NE winds will prevail north of the front across the Yucatan Channel through early Sat, while seas build across the far NW Caribbean through Fri night. Increasing winds and seas may impact the NE Caribbean including Atlantic Passages early next week.

Present Condition: Mostly clear in the north, becoming cloudier in the south. Mostly clear in San Pedro, a few clouds are about. The weather out to sea is moving a bit closer. The stationary front Chacnict� (num. 9) will continue to produce precipitation today, as well as cool winds and high tide off the coast. Moist and unstable conditions linger across the country. A small craft caution remains in effect for locally rough seas near heavy showers and thunderstorms.

24hr Forecast: Mostly cloudy this afternoon with a few showers, periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms around the country this afternoon, increasing tonight, especially over the southern districts.

Outlook: Between Saturday afternoon and Sunday midday is for a few showers and isolated thunderstorms to continue affecting the country.
