Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

The pressure gradient between strong high pressure of 1032 mb centered SE of Nova Scotia and lower pressure in NW Colombia and in the south-central Caribbean continues to support fresh to strong trade winds across the central and eastern Caribbean Sea. The strong winds are mainly confined to the Windward Passage, off southern Hispaniola and especially in the south-central Caribbean. Strong to gale-force winds are occurring off NW Colombia as detailed in the Special Features section. Outside of the Gale Warning area, seas are 7-11 ft. Moderate to locally fresh easterly winds are evident in the remainder of the basin long with seas of 4-7 ft. Isolated showers moving quickly in the trade wind flow are possible E of 69W and also from 12N to 15N W of 69W.

For the forecast, the aforementioned strong high pressure N of the area will help sustain fresh to strong trade winds in the central Caribbean through tonight, then across the south-central portion of the sea through early Thu. Afterward, a new area of high pressure that will build over the western Atlantic in the wake of a cold front will help maintain fresh to strong trade winds in the central Caribbean through Fri night. Winds will pulse to gale-force off the coast of Colombia at night through the period. Fresh to strong NE to E winds will also occur in the Windward Passage and lee of Cuba this morning, then again from Wed afternoon through Fri night. Fresh to strong trade winds and high seas prevailing east of the Leeward Islands will diminish today.

The easterly Caribbean winds are still being slightly deflected southwards and there are still traces of the cool air from the north around, the clash causing rain in the south.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny, but with significant clouds in the south and some rain.
