The Caribbean Sea

The GFS model for 250 mb and water vapor satellite imagery show a trough that extends from NW Cuba, into the west central Caribbean Sea, to the northern coast of Colombia. Precipitation: no significant deep convective precipitation is apparent in satellite imagery.

Comparatively drier air in subsidence is apparent in water vapor imagery, nearly everywhere, except from 17N northward from 80W westward. Rainshowers are possible, in broken to overcast low level clouds, in the trade wind flow.

24-hour rainfall totals that are listed for the period that ended at 11/0000 UTC, according to the PAN AMERICAN TEMPERATURE AND PRECIPITATION TABLES, MIATPTPAN/SXCA01 KNHC, are: 0.42 in Guadeloupe, and 0.06 in Curacao.

High pressure, that is centered to the north of the area, will allow for strong to near gale-force winds to continue across the entire area through at least Tuesday. Gale-force winds are expected to continue in the south central Caribbean Sea through Tuesday night, then pulse to gale-force again on Wednesday night. Large sea heights will continue across the region into Thursday.

The easterly Caribbean winds have quite a few small chunky clouds, but also some much larger, but higher areas of cloud. These have been cause the odd lines of rain over Belize for the last couple of days and it looks as if this is still happening. The serious line of rain over the southern US appears to have now reduced, no indication of a cold front coming down at present.

Looks like today will be mainly sunny, but with significant clouds from time to time and a chance of small rain showers anywhere.
