Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

The western end of a weakening Atlantic cold front extends from 17N60W to 16N66W. Other than a few possible light showers, fairly quiet weather prevails across the basin. Fresh trades are occurring near the coast of Colombia and just off the S coast of Hispaniola. Moderate winds are found elsewhere over the central Caribbean. Gentle to moderate winds prevail over the eastern and western parts of the basin. Seas are 5-8 in the NE Caribbean passages due to large swell from the Atlantic. Seas are 6-7 ft offshore Colombia. Seas are 3-5 ft elsewhere over the E and central Caribbean, and 2-4 ft across the NW basin.

For the forecast, the weakening cold front over the eastern Caribbean is forecast to dissipate today. In the wake of this front, weak high pressure ridging north of the Caribbean Sea will allow for moderate northeast to east trade winds across the basin, except for fresh to pulsing locally strong NE to E winds offshore Colombia through Tue night. Then, winds will increase slightly across the basin during the middle of the week as high pressure builds to the east of Florida. Large long-period N to NE swell will continue to propagate through the NE Caribbean passages for much of the week.

On Ambergris Caye this morning we have occasional showers and a breeze from the East at 10 mph creating a calm sea state around our barrier reef. Today's expected high temperature is 85 f.

The easterly Caribbean winds are slow this morning, there are still some shower making clouds around, but less than recently. I think there is a change in the weather coming, I think we might be getting some cooler air pushing down from the north, but there is no evidence of that as yet.

Looks as if today will be a mixture of sunshine, cloud and scattered rain showers.
