The Caribbean Sea

Two tropical waves are moving across the basin.

The eastern Pacific monsoon trough extends from SE Panama to northern Colombia. Scattered moderate to strong convection is noted along the monsoon trough south of 13N between 74W to 83W.

Fresh to strong tradewinds were detected by the latest scatterometer pass in the south central Caribbean. The strongest winds extend from the coast of Colombia north to 14N between 70W and 77W. Mainly moderate to fresh trades prevail elsewhere in the basin. Seas of 4-6 ft throughout the basin, except 6-9 ft near the area of strong winds off in the south central Caribbean.

For the forecast, high pressure extends from the E central Atlantic W-SW to central Florida and will weaken north of the area through early Sat before building back Sun through Tue. This ridge will combine with lower pressure over Venezuela and Colombia to support pulsing fresh to strong trades over the S central Caribbean and Gulf of Honduras during the weekend through Tue. Fresh to strong trades, scattered tstms and squalls will follow a tropical wave along 70W tonight as it moves W across the Caribbean through Sun.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Latest satellite imagery shows that Potential Tropical Cyclone 3 remains poorly organized as much of the convection is still displaced well to the east of the low-level center. As this potential tropical cyclone drifts slowly northward, it will gradually become better organized, and we expect it to become a tropical depression Friday morning. Some additional strengthening is likely Friday afternoon as the system continues moving northward. It will likely become a tropical storm prior to reaching the central Gulf Coast late Friday or Friday night; the next name on the list is Claudette.

Elsewhere, there are a few tropical waves currently found across the basin. These waves are near 81 west, 59 west and 38 west. These tropical waves are moving westward at generally 10-15 mph. The wave near 81 west will move into the southern Gulf of Mexico Friday and may help to further the potential tropical development of Potential Tropical Cyclone 3.

A lot of mid-high level cloud around, there was a swellup down south, but that is dying out now.

Looks as if today will be mainly cloudy, but with some sunshine in places, there could be some rain this afternoon.
