Marine Conditions:

The Caribbean Sea

There are two tropical waves in the Atlantic, and two in the Caribbean.

An upper level trough off the SE United States extends to the NW Caribbean Sea allowing for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms from the coast of Colombia to Hispaniola, between 71W and 76W. A surface trough extends from southern Florida to the Gulf of Honduras and a few shallow showers are seen near the trough axis. The rest of the basin remains fairly quiet outside of the tropical wave in the E Caribbean previously described in the Tropical Waves section. Fresh trades were noted overnight within 150 nm of the coast of NE Venezuela, including the waters surrounding the ABC islands. Moderate or weaker trades prevail elsewhere. Seas of 3-5 ft are occurring in the E, central and SW Caribbean, while 1-3 ft are present elsewhere.

For the forecast, a tropical wave along 65W is approaching the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. This wave will continue to bring active weather across the extreme NE Caribbean and adjacent Atlc waters today. Northerly swell will subside across the regional Atlc and Caribbean passages through tonight. Low pres is expected to develop E of the southern Bahamas on Thu and drift eastward into the weekend. This will weaken the pressure gradient across the Caribbean basin leading to tranquil marine conditions.

The Atlantic basin has no organized tropical systems at this time.

There is a surface trough of low pressure producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos, and the southeastern Bahamas. Development of this system, if any, would be slow to occur during the next couple of days due to unfavorable environmental conditions while the disturbance initially drifts northward, then accelerates eastward by Thursday. By the end of the week, further development is unlikely as the disturbance is expected to interact with a frontal system. It has a low (10 percent) chance of formation during the next 48 hours and five days. Regardless, locally heavy rainfall is possible over portions of Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos, and the southeastern Bahamas during the next day or two.

The easterly Caribbean winds are starting up again. There has been ITCZ activity on the Pacific coast, and Honduras, putting out high level cloud our way. This appears to have been clashing with high level winds from the north, resulting in a stationary area in the Caribbean.

Looks as if today will again be mainly sunshine, once the fog has burnt off and clouds developing during the morning, a slightly higher chance of some rain showers.
