Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A stationary front extends from central Cuba to the coast of Honduras. Scattered moderate convection is noted N of 18N and W of 78W in association with this boundary. Winds N and W of the front are fresh to strong out of the NE, with seas of 8 to 10 ft.

Elsewhere across the basin, mainly fresh E winds dominate, with an area of strong trades offshore Colombia, and locally strong trades just S of Haiti. Seas are 6 to 8 ft.

For the forecast, surface ridging N of the region will extend to the northern Caribbean into late week. This will continue to provide moderate to fresh trade winds across the eastern, central, and SW Caribbean. Pulsing strong to near-gale E winds will persist over NW Colombia offshore waters through Sat. E swell will continue to affect the tropical Atlantic and the eastern Caribbean waters through Wed night. A stationary front will linger in the NW Caribbean into Tue. Fresh to strong winds and rough seas will prevail behind the front into tonight, when conditions will slowly improve as the front weakens.

The fight for air space is on, the low level cloud over central Belize and off shore is coming down from the north, but the Caribbean winds are still coming in from the east, and there is a lot of high level fast cloud from the SW.

Looks as if today will continue to be very cloudy and cold, last night down to 18 °C 64 °F perhaps not much rain.

Last Night 18 °C 64 °F Yesterday max. 22 °C 72 °F Yesterday Rain 18.6 mm ( 0.73 " ) Over Night Rain 9.0 mm ( 0.35 " )
Humidity 83% Pressure 1020 mBar hPa
