Outside the Gale Warning area, strong to near-gale NE winds and seas of 8 to 11 ft are present in the central basin. Moderate to fresh winds dominate the remainder of the basin, with seas of 6 to 8 ft. Locally strong E to SE winds have developed in the Gulf of Honduras.

Easterly Caribbean winds firmly in control. But they are being deflected over the Gulf by another cool air bubble approaching the Gulf, caused by a low pressure tight swirl over central north USA.

Looks as if today will e very much like yesterday, mainly sunny, but with white clouds.

Windy Caribbean
The Caribbean is windy and gusty winds will get stronger this weekend. We have Gale Warnings for parts of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and Eastern Pacific. Plus, and old front will drive in spotty showers.

A new front will bring cooler nights this weekend to Cuba, Mexico, Belize, The Cayman Islands, Honduras, and Jamaica.
