The Caribbean Sea

A Gale Warning is in effect for the coastal waters of Colombia.

Recent satellite derived wind data provided observations of minimal gale force winds near the coast of Colombia, with fresh to strong winds blowing across the remainder of the south-central Caribbean. Moderate to fresh NE winds are in the lee of eastern Cuba, and also across the rest of the east and central Caribbean. Seas are 8 to 12 ft over the south-central Caribbean, with the highest seas near the coast of Colombia. Seas of 5 to 7 ft dominate the remainder of the east and central Caribbean, with seas in the 3 to 5 ft range in the NW Caribbean.

Pockets of shallow moisture embedded in the trade wind flow are moving across the area producing isolated to scattered passing showers, more concentrated between Haiti and Jamaica, and in the Gulf of Honduras.

For the forecast, strong trade winds will continue over the south-central Caribbean Sea, with fresh winds elsewhere over the eastern and central Caribbean through the forecast period. Minimal gale-force winds will pulse at night near the coast of Colombia during the majority of the forecast period. Seas will build to 12 or 13 ft during the strongest winds. Winds will increase in the Windward Passage, lee of Cuba and Gulf of Honduras later today through late this week, pulsing to strong at night. Strong easterly winds will also pulse off southern Hispaniola and occasionally in the eastern Caribbean through the forecast period. Looking ahead, a cold front will approach the Yucatan Channel on Sat morning, and move across the NW Caribbean through Sun morning. Fresh to strong N winds and moderate to rough seas are expected in the wake of the front.

The easterly Caribbean winds are back in control, but there is some high level winds from the WNW which are clashing with the Caribbean winds to form many off shore and on shore clouds and sone patches of rain.

Looks as if today will be largely cloud, with some sunshine and a high chance of the odd rain shower.
