The Caribbean Sea

There is a gale warning for off the coast of Colombia. A mid to upper-level trough axis extends across the eastern Caribbean this morning, with scattered showers and thunderstorms noted in radar imagery downstream of the trough over Puerto Rico, USVI, and the NE Caribbean offshore waters. Overnight scatterometer data revealed a large area of fresh to strong winds across the south-central Caribbean. Altimeter data from 23/0600 UTC showed 7-10 ft seas in this region. Fresh to strong winds are also occurring through the Windward and Mona passages, as well as south of Hispaniola. Fairly benign marine conditions prevail across the NW Caribbean under the influence of deep-layer ridging.

A high pressure ridge across the western Atlantic will maintain fresh to strong winds over the south-central Caribbean through the week. Gale force winds off the coast of Colombia early this morning will diminish today, then pulse to gale force again tonight. Fresh to strong winds will continue through the Windward Passage and south of Hispaniola through tonight, then diminish slightly through midweek. Short-period NE swell across the waters east of the Leeward Islands will subside Tue into Tue night. Fresh to locally strong winds will pulse at night in the Gulf of Honduras Tue night through Fri night.

The easterly Caribbean air has patches of significant cloud, that could bring a few patches of scattered rain later, more likely in the south. There is a trace of higher air moving up from the south, which has been helping some clouds to form. Typical clouds already starting to form over land, no rain at present.

Looks like another sunny day, with scattered clouds developing, a small chance of some rain showers later in the south.
