Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There is a Gale Warning in the south-central Caribbean off the northern coast of Colombia.

Subtropical high pressure extends a ridge SSW across the Caribbean waters, which along with lower pressure in northern Colombia tightens the pressure gradient, thus supporting the continuation of mainly fresh trades across the eastern half of the basin along with 5-8 ft seas, except fresh to strong in the central Caribbean from 10N to 18N where seas are 6-10 ft. Gentle to moderate winds prevail in the NW Caribbean with locally fresh winds near the Gulf of Honduras. Seas are 2-4 ft in the NW Caribbean, locally to 5 ft near the Gulf of Honduras.

For the forecast, fresh to strong trade winds will continue over most of the central and eastern Caribbean through the forecast period. Winds will pulse at night to minimal gale-force near the coast of Colombia on Mon night and Tue night. Moderate to fresh winds will pulse in the Gulf of Honduras through midweek. A cold front is expected to approach the Yucatan Channel area on Thu enhancing winds/seas.

Cold front is not expected for the Yucatan Peninsula until January 26th. We can see in the most recent satellite image, from this Sunday, January 22, a cold front over the Gulf of Mexico, extending to the eastern states of Mexico; however, this is a cold front that will not advance much but to the north of Veracruz; it will be generating rain activities in the southern states, Veracruz, Chiapas, Tabasco, so in the rest of Mexico, the probability of rain will be very low, this is a cold front that will not reach the Yucatan Peninsula, Cuba, nor Central America for this Sunday; the weather will remain stable in a large part of the region with very low chances of rain for the Yucatan Peninsula, Cuba, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and in Central America low chances of rain for Guatemala except for the south where they can occur. Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, and with a little more chance of rain on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua and the central part of Costa Rica and Panama, especially in the afternoon. It is likely that a new front could reach the Yucatan Peninsula and the western part of Cuba on January 26, so far the forecast models suggest it.

The Caribbean winds being diverted by cool air pushing down, some now over southern Belize.

Looks as if today will be a mixture of sunshine and cloud, probably no rain, could be a little this afternoon.
