The Caribbean Sea
There is a gale warning for off the coast of Colombia. A 500-mb trough persists over the eastern Caribbean this morning, with isolated showers noted in radar imagery near the Leeward Islands and over the NE Caribbean offshore waters. At the surface, a ridge across the subtropical western Atlantic is maintaining moderate trade winds across much of the basin, with fresh to strong winds over the south-central Caribbean and through the Windward Passage. Gentle to moderate winds prevail across the NW Caribbean. Seas are running 8-11 ft within the strongest winds near the coast of Colombia, and less than 8 ft over the rest of the basin.
A high pressure ridge north of the area will maintain fresh to strong trades over the south-central Caribbean through this week. Marginal gale force winds near the coast of Colombia will diminish later this morning. Gale force winds are possible offshore of Colombia once again Fri night and Sat night as high pressure builds over the subtropical Atlantic. Fresh to strong NE winds through the Windward Passage and south of Hispaniola will diminish later today. Fresh to locally strong winds will pulse at night in the Gulf of Honduras tonight through Sat night.
