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.
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.
Last Night 23 °C 73 °F Yesterday max. 28 °C 83 °F Yesterday Rain 0.6 mm ( 0.02 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) Humidity 85% Pressure 1015 mBar hPa
Present Condition: Mostly sunny throughout the country, a few widely scattered light clouds. Mostly clear in San Pedro. Relatively moist conditions linger over the area.
24hr Forecast: Sunny with cloudy spells this afternoon and tomorrow morning and cloudy skies at times tonight. Showers will be isolated, except for a few more over inland areas this afternoon and along the coast tomorrow morning.
Outlook: Between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday midday is for generally fair weather with only isolated showers.
