The Caribbean Sea

A 1011 mb surface low is centered just east of the eastern tip of Jamaica near 19N76W. Widely scattered moderate convection is within 120 nm of the low. Scattered moderate to strong convection is elsewhere along the north coast of Hispaniola and Cuba. Scattered moderate convection is off the coast of N Colombia from 13N-15N between 71W-74W. Scattered moderate convection is inland over S Guatemala, El Salvador, W Honduras, and W Nicaragua. Scattered showers are over Costa Rica, Panama, N Colombia and the SW Caribbean S of 11N mostly due to the East Pacific monsoon trough. Latest scatterometer data depicts light to gentle winds across much of the basin.

Large northerly swell will continue to pass through the NE Caribbean passages through the remainder of the weekend. A strong tropical wave along 59W is likely to form into low pressure as it crosses the Windward Islands tonight through Sun, bringing gale conditions to portions of the area. There is a high chance that this feature will develop into a tropical cyclone through the weekend, and a high chance early next week as it moves WNW or NW through the E Caribbean.

Interests across the eastern Caribbean should monitor the progress of INVEST99L (now Tropical Storm Karen) and tropical storm watches and warnings will likely be required for portions of the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico later today.

Satellite, radar and surface data indicate that the area of low pressure located just north of Tobago is becoming better organized and is producing winds to near tropical storm force in the eastern portion of the system. Further development of this disturbance is expected over the next couple of days, and a tropical depression or tropical storm will likely form while it moves west-northwestward and then northwestward at 10 to 15 mph across the Windward Islands and over the eastern Caribbean Sea. The system is then expected to turn northward, moving near Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on Tuesday. Heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds are likely over much of the Leeward and Windward Islands during the next couple of days and will spread across Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands by Monday night or Tuesday. An Air Force Hurricane Hunter is scheduled to investigate the system this afternoon.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...
* Trinidad and Tobago
* Grenada and its dependencies

There is virtually no air movement near us, in any direction. There is a tiny bit of high level, causing a small swellup over the sea off PG but that is it.

Looks like today will be a hot sunny day. Easterly winds and some cloud should develop over the next few hours, but probably little or no rain. No rain on land this morning.
