The Caribbean Sea

An 1026 mb high near the northwest Bahamas continues to support a NE to ESE trade-wind regime across the entire basin. Patchy trade- wind showers are seen south of the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Outside the Gale Warning area, strong to near-gale NE to ENE winds with 8 to 10 ft seas are present at the south- central basin. Moderate to fresh with locally strong ENE winds and seas of 5 to 7 ft are found over the north-central basin, including the Windward Passage. Fresh to strong E to ESE winds and 6 to 8 ft seas are occurring at the Gulf of Honduras. Mainly moderate ENE to ESE winds with 4 to 6 ft seas prevail for the remainder of the basin.

For the forecast, the 1026 mb high will maintain fresh to strong trades across the central Caribbean for the next several days. These winds should gradually decrease in both speed and coverage starting Sun. Fresh to strong NE to E winds will also occur in the Windward Passage and lee of Cuba through Sun. Strong to near gale E to SE winds in the Gulf of Honduras will continue through Sun morning. Looking ahead, large long-period N swell will impact the waters near Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands by Sun night.

When will it Rain in the Caribbean
When will it rain across the Caribbean? The dry pattern is locked in BUT that pattern will break down in two weeks. In the short-term, only isolated showers will be around. It will stay wet, however, in Guyana and Suriname. By early to mid-March, we'll see a more active pattern with at least the chance of scattered showers.

It looks as if there is or has been a cool air bubble moving past us, deflecting the Caribbean winds, but that is now passing over Cuba, not coming near us. There are patches of cloud out at sea and some have been causing rain earlier, but drying up now.

Looks as if today will be mainly sunny but with significant white clouds, no rain expected.

Drought & Dust Hit the Caribbean
The drought is getting worse, and dust is moving into the Caribbean. Water restrictions remain for many locations, including Jamaica. Some areas will see rain, mainly south of Trinidad and Tobago. With the dry pattern, water shortages will only get worse and cause issues with agriculture. I will monitor the situation closely.

EARTHQUAKE: There was an earthquake early this morning north of Anguilla and Saint Martin. It was a 4.5 magnitude, in the Atlantic. There was no tsunami threat.
