The Caribbean Sea
A broad area of low pressure located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea and is producing an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Development, if any, of this system is expected to slow to occur during the next several days while it drifts west-southwestward or westward across the southwestern Caribbean Sea.
Elsewhere, a 1011 mb low pressure area is noted in the southwest Caribbean north of the Panama Canal near 11N80W. Scattered moderate and isolated strong disorganized convection is noted within 180 nm in the southeast semicircle of the low. Development, if any, of this system is expected to slow to occur during the next several days while it drifts west-southwestward or westward across the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Regardless of tropical cyclone formation, areas of heavy rain are possible during the next several days from Nicaragua southward across Central America and into Colombia. These rains could cause new flooding concerns, especially across previously inundated areas.
