The Caribbean Sea

Gale-force winds are noted over the south-central Caribbean off the coast of Colombia. Also, large northerly swell is expected for the northeast Caribbean passages on Sunday. See the sections above for details.

Strong to near gale tradewinds prevail across the remainder of the basin west of 70W. Moderate trades are east of 70W. Isolated showers are seen near the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola as well as the adjacent waters. Isolated showers and tstorms are also seen over the Gulf of Honduras. The central Caribbean is experiencing relatively dry air due to mid-level ridging over the region. Elsewhere, a cold front that extends from the SE Bahamas to the Dry Tortugas is spreading cloudiness and showers along the north coast of Cuba.

The pressure gradient between strong high pressure centered over the SE U.S. coast and low pressure over NW Colombia will continue to support gales off the coast of Colombia through Sun morning, with gale force winds again pulsing Sun night. This gradient will tighten further as the high surges south through tonight, leading to strong to near gale force winds over much of the central and northeast Caribbean into Sun. For most areas, winds and seas will diminish Mon and Tue, but a cold front will move into the NW Caribbean Mon evening, bringing strong N winds to areas W of 80W into Tue night.

Rain and more rain over night and continuing into this morning due to the clashing of the easterly Caribbean clouds with the higher Pacific clouds from the SW causing swellups, but no lightning. The present band of rain will probably continue across central and north Belize over then next few hours, there could be more later.

Looks as if rain bands may continue to come in during the day, mainly effecting central and north Belize.
