The Caribbean Sea
The gradient between high pressure in the Gulf of Mexico and
lower pressure over Colombia is supporting moderate to fresh E-
NE winds in the central and NW basin, including the Windward
Passage. Locally strong NE winds are occurring offshore
Colombia. Winds are gentle in the eastern Caribbean. Seas are
generally 3-5 ft across the majority of the basin, except 5-7 ft
offshore Colombia and 6-8 ft NE swell in the Mona and Anegada
For the forecast, large long-period northeast swell across the central
Atlantic will continue subsiding today before building again
early this week as another swell event reaches the region. High
pressure north of the Caribbean is allowing for gentle to
moderate northeast to east trade winds across the basin, except
for fresh to strong pulsing northeast to east winds offshore
Colombia during the forecast period.
