The Caribbean Sea
The latest surface analysis depicts a rather weak pressure gradient across the basin. Overnight ASCAT data highlighted moderate to fresh trade winds over the central Caribbean and fresh to strong southeast winds in the Gulf of Honduras. It revealed moderate trade winds elsewhere across the basin. Mainly fair weather conditions are in place across the basin, except for isolated shower and thunderstorm activity that is occurring over the far southwestern Caribbean along the coast of Panama. Wave heights are in the 4-6 ft range across most of the basin, except up to 7 ft in some locations in the south-central Caribbean.
For the forecast, fresh southeast winds will continue over the northwestern Caribbean through the period, while fresh to strong east to southeast winds continue in the Gulf of Honduras. Winds will pulse to strong speeds over a small area near the coast of Colombia during the afternoons and at night through Thu. Elsewhere, generally moderate to fresh east winds will change little through Fri night.
