The Caribbean Sea

A 1034 mb surface ridge centered along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the U.S. is leading to an enhanced pressure gradient over the Caribbean between it and lower pressure over northern South America. This is inducing fresh trades across most of the basin, with areas of strong NE winds just offshore S of Cuba and Hispaniola, and the Windward Passage, and offshore Colombia. Convergent trade winds are producing scattered convection over the north-central and NW basin, otherwise dry conditions generally prevail. Seas are 4 to 7 ft, with some 8 ft seas in the areas of strong winds.

For the forecast, the continued tight pressure gradient will lead to moderate to fresh NE to E trades across the through Sat night, with areas of strong winds in the lees of the Greater Antilles, the Windward Passage, and offshore Colombia. Winds will then slowly diminish for the start of next week.

Strange weather, there is on the ENE Caribbean winds moving, but there appears to be other weather above, causing clashing and so there are many areas of small rain showers around. Parts of Belize have sunshine this morning others significant cloud.

Look as today will be variable, heavy cloud, light cloud patches and some isolated rain showers
