The Caribbean Sea

A modest stationary front reaches south-southwestward from the western end of Cuba to near the coast of Belize. Scattered showers are noted up to 60 nm along either side of this feature. Outside the Gale Warning area, strong to near-gale ENE winds and seas of 8 to 10 ft are evident at the south-central basin. Fresh to strong ENE to E trades with 5 to 8 ft seas exist at the north-central basin. Gentle to moderate NE to ENE trades and seas at 4 to 6 ft prevail for the rest of the basin.

For the forecast, near-gale to gale ENE winds at the south- central Caribbean will decrease to between fresh and strong by noon. They are going to pulse back to gale force this evening, and Sat evening. Meanwhile a cold front will progress eastward across western Cuba through Sat, then gradually dissipate near central Cuba Sun evening. This feature is expected to cause fresh to strong with locally near-gale easterly winds near the Windward Passage and south of Cuba and Hispaniola late this afternoon though Mon. A stationary front continues from the cold front to near the Belize coast, causing showers and thunderstorms through Sat before dissipating by Sat night.

The weather is dominated by a strong ESE Caribbean winds, with clouds, and high level clouds all over the area from the SW, causing heavy clods over most of Belize this morning and probably for much of the day in most areas. Despite all this cloud, there is not a lot of rain about, but some light drizzle.

Looks as if today will be mainly cloudy, only a few glimpses of the sun, and probably only a little rain patches.
