Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

Fresh to locally strong NE winds prevail across the Windward Passage, and near the south coast of Dominican Republic, mainly between Santo Domingo and Cabo Beata. Fresh trades prevail elsewhere across much of the eastern and central Caribbean. Gentle to moderate E winds are occurring over the NW corner of the basin ahead of a cold front moving across the eastern and southwest Gulf of Mexico. Seas are 6-8 ft over Colombia adjacent waters, and 5-7 ft elsewhere across the east and central portions of the basin. Seas of 3-5 ft are noted in the NW Caribbean, except in the lee of Cuba where seas are in the 1-3 ft range. Seas are 4-6 ft in the area N of Jamaica to the Windward Passage.

For the forecast, surface ridging north of the area will continue to support locally strong winds off the Colombian coast through Mon night. Similar winds are forecast across the Windward Passage, and south of Hispaniola through late today, returning across the Windward Passage Sat night through Sun night. Elsewhere, mainly moderate to fresh trades will prevail through the weekend, locally strong in the Tropical N Atlantic and through eastern Caribbean Passages through Fri. A weak cold front will approach the area on Fri and dissipate into the NW basin during the weekend, thus diminishing winds to gentle to moderate speeds early on Mon.

There appears to be a push from the Gulf, the Caribbean winds are being deflected slightly southwards, not much indication of high level winds. There is some rain about, in any place, but mainly in the south.

Looks as if today will be sun and cloud with a significant chance of some rain patches.
