The Caribbean Sea

A cold front extends over the northwest Caribbean from eastern Cuba near 22N82W to the Yucatan near 19N88W. Scattered thunderstorms are within 60 nm of the front. Strong N winds follow the front with rough seas, with light to gentle winds and slight seas ahead of it. Farther south, strong to near gale- force winds are in the Colombia offshore waters and in the Gulf of Venezuela. Seas are 8-12 ft in this area. Moderate to fresh easterly winds prevail across the rest of the basin with 4-7 ft seas.

For the forecast, surface ridging N of the region will extend to the northern Caribbean through the middle of next week. This will continue to provide moderate to fresh trade winds across the eastern, central and SW Caribbean. Pulsing strong winds will persist for the Gulf of Venezuela and NW Colombia offshore waters through Wed night. NE and E swell will continue to affect the tropical Atlantic and the eastern Caribbean waters through Wed. A cold front extends from eastern Cuba to the Yucatan with fresh to strong winds and rough seas following it. The front will reach from central Cuba to the Yucatan later today and stall across the area through Tue. Fresh to strong winds with rough seas will follow the front through Mon, where conditions will slowly improve as the front begins to weaken.

Very complicated weather this morning. We will certainly have a White Christmas, but white clouds and rain.
The regular easterly Caribbean winds and clouds are actually still crossing over Belize, but the cool air from the north is full of cloud and coming down stronger from the NNE, and there is high level winds from the SW, but to complicate things further, the is warmer mid-level cloud coming up from the south.

Looks like a real mess today, clouds, rain, clouds.
