The Caribbean Sea

High pressure over the Atlantic Ocean extends over the northern Caribbean. The pressure gradient from this high pressure and the low pressure in Colombia is giving way to fresh to strong winds in the central Caribbean north of Colombia to 18N, in addition to the Gulf of Venezuela. Seas are 6 to 10 ft in this area per recent altimeter data. Moderate to fresh winds prevail elsewhere, except gentle to moderate in the northern Caribbean north of 20N. Seas are 4 to 6 ft in the eastern Caribbean, locally higher through Atlantic passages due to prolonged NE swell, and 3 to 5 ft in the northern Caribbean north of 20N.

For the forecast, surface ridging north of the region will maintain fresh to strong NE to E tradewinds across the central and SW Caribbean Sea through at least Wed night, reaching near-gale off Colombia before sunrise today and again tonight. Moderate to locally fresh winds will prevail in the E Caribbean with gentle to moderate winds in the W Caribbean. Large, long-period N to NE swell will continue to move into the tropical Atlantic and through the Anegada Passage into the northeast Caribbean for the next several days. A cold front will dissipate as it pushes into the Yucatan Channel Sun night into Mon.

The easterly Caribbean winds are pushing the cool air bubble away now and there is now some of the mid-level cloud back in the Caribbean that can and was causing rain a week or so ago. There is also thin high level cloud from the SW.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, with significant cloud, some typical Caribbean clouds, some mid-level and some high level. There is a chance of the odd scattered rain shower , some already in the north.

Last Night 24 °C 75 °F Yesterday max. 30 °C 86 °F Yesterday Rain 0 mm ( 0 " ) Over Night Rain 0 mm ( 0 " )
