The Caribbean Sea
An upper-level trough extends from 25N65W to Haiti to Jamaica. To
the southeast of this upper-trough, ample moisture is present
along with persistent shower and thunderstorm activity. These
showers and thunderstorms are affecting eastern portions of the
Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Scattered
showers and thunderstorms extend across the eastern Caribbean from
the coast of Venezuela to Puerto Rico between 63W-70W.
A Central American Gyre has formed in the southwest Caribbean.
GOES-16 Total Precipitable water clear shows large scale rotation
associated with the gyre. A surface trough is analyzed through the
developing gyre from 18N79W to 13N80W. Scattered showers and
isolated thunderstorms are noted from 10N-18N between 70W-84W,
although little to no showers are occuring north of 15N and west
of 80W. This gyre, or broad low pressure area, will slowly shift
W toward central America through early next week. Enhanced showers
and thunderstorms are expected to persist over the southwest
Caribbean. Another surface trough is located from northwestern
Honduras to northern Belize. Scattered showers and thunderstorms
are over Belize, northern Guatemala and the Yucatan Peninsula.
To the south, the monsoon trough extends over the SW Caribbean Sea
from 12N73W to 12N80W to the coast of central Nicaragua. Scattered
moderate convection is occurring over Nicaragua and waters west of
81W and south of 14N.
NE swell from Hurricane Leslie will affect Caribbean passages
through tonight. Expect moderate trade winds to prevail across
the eastern Caribbean Sea through tonight. Mainly moderate to
fresh trades will prevail across the basin for the start of next
week. The tropical wave associated with the remnants of Nadine is
expected to reach the Lesser Antilles early next week.
