Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

A Gale Warning is in effect for the coastal waters of Colombia. Recent satellite derived wind data provided observations of fresh to strong trades across the central Caribbean S of 16N, and fresh to locally strong winds over the Windward Passage, between Jamaica and eastern Cuba, and in the lee of Cuba. Seas are 9 to 13 ft over the south-central Caribbean, 9 to 10 ft S of Hispaniola, 8 to 9 ft in the Windward Passage and between Jamaica and eastern Cuba, 8 ft in the Gulf of Honduras, and 5 to 7 ft elsewhere.

Pockets of shallow moisture embedded in the trade wind flow are moving across the area producing isolated to scattered passing showers. The tail end of a frontal boundary over the Atlantic is producing some shower activity over eastern Cuba.

For the forecast, strong trade winds will continue over the central Caribbean Sea, with fresh winds elsewhere over the eastern Caribbean through Sat. Gale-force winds will pulse at night near the coast of Colombia through the forecast period. Winds will increase in the Windward Passage, lee of Cuba and Gulf of Honduras tonight 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 reach the Yucatan Channel by Sat evening, and move across the NW Caribbean on Sun, extending from eastern Cuba to the Gulf of Honduras by Sun evening. Fresh to strong N winds and moderate to rough seas are expected in the wake of the front.

Several Caribbean islands rattled by two earthquakes. In Gales Point they felt light shaking for about 20 seconds.

Generally steady easterly Caribbean winds, but with some patches of cloud, some caused by the high level from the NW. Humidity is high this morning and causing cloud to form over the mountains.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with significant clouds and the possibility of the odd rain shower.

Earthquakes on that Fault Line from South Cuba, through Cayman and down and across to Puerto Cortes and Puerto Barrious is a sideways sliding fault line and so does not cause Tsunamis.
