The Caribbean Sea

The tight pressure gradient between high pressure centered in the NW Atlantic and lower pressure over Colombia is leading to moderate to fresh NE to E trades over much of the basin. With the high nosing SW toward the ridge, winds have increased to strong offshore Cuba and Hispaniola, in the Windward Passage, and offshore Colombia. Seas are 5 to 7 ft. Aside from scattered moderate convection associated with low level speed shear in the Gulf of Honduras, dry conditions dominate the Caribbean this morning.

For the forecast, the tight pressure gradient will prevail, causing moderate to fresh NE to E trades to continue through tonight, with areas of strong winds in the lee of the Greater Antilles, the Windward Passage, and offshore Colombia. Winds will then slowly diminish for the start of next week.

Strange weather, very strong Caribbean winds from the ENE, but no other higher air movements visible, but there are clearly other air masses causing very significant cloud and rain in many places. Small but sometimes very heavy rain patches in any place, particularly Toledo earlier this morning, and still temperatures up in the October temperatures.

Looks as today will continue like yesterday by less patches of heavy rain but still some anywhere, but more sunshine.

Last Night 23 °C 74 °F Yesterday max. 29 °C 85 °F Yesterday Rain 25 mm ( 0.98 " ) Over Night Rain 7 mm ( 0.28 " )
Humidity 84% Pressure 1016.5 mBar hPa
