The Caribbean Sea
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are in the
southwestern Caribbean, more concentrated near and along the
coast of Panama. Generally tranquil weather conditions prevail
elsewhere. The pressure gradient between high pressure north of
the Caribbean and lower pressures across northern South America
is maintaining moderate to fresh trade winds in the central and
eastern Caribbean, including the Windward Passage as noted in
recent partial ASCAT data passes. Seas in these waters are 4-7
ft. Gentle to moderate easterly breezes are in the northwestern
Caribbean, except for mainly fresh east winds in the Gulf of
Honduras and near the adjacent Bay Islands. Seas in the waters
described are 2-4 ft.
For the forecast, Atlantic high pressure will maintain moderate
to fresh trade winds across the central and eastern Caribbean Sea
through Thu afternoon. Winds will pulse to strong speeds at
tonight and Wed night south of Hispaniola and in the Windward
Passage. Beginning on Thu evening, fresh to strong northeast winds
will develop in the lee of Cuba, in the Windward Passage and
continue south of Hispaniola. These winds will spread a good
distance to the southwest over the western and central Caribbean
areas through Sat night as strengthening high pressure shifts
offshore the mid-Atlantic region. Long-period north swell
propagating through the Tropical N Atlantic waters will slowly
subside through Wed night.
