Marine Weather Discussion for the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Tropical North Atlantic from 07N to 19N between 55W and 64W and the Southwest North Atlantic including the Bahamas


...GULF OF MEXICO...

High pres across the W Atlc extending SW to the eastern Gulf will maintain fresh to strong SE winds across the western Gulf through Fri. High pres will become more E to W aligned along about 30N over the weekend to produce moderate to fresh E to SE wind flow across most of Gulf. Smoke from fires in southern Mexico will maintain hazy skies in the western Gulf and Bay of Campeche the next few days.


...CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLANTIC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN 55W AND 64W...

High pres across the W Atlc will maintain fresh to strong tradewinds across most of the south central Caribbean and the Gulf of Honduras through Thu night before wind diminish modestly through the weekend. Developing low pres across the eastern Pacific and Central America may produce very active weather across the SW Caribbean Fri through the weekend. A Central American gure has begun to develop along the Pacific coasts frmo Costa Rica to El Salvador. As this feature become better defined in the next several days, the tradewind flow across the SW Carib will become interupted and weakened, and very active weather will likely prevail across the SW Carib and adjacent coastal zones. Models even suggest additional sfc low development associated with this along Carib coastline next week.


...SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS...

A cold front will sink south across the northern waters this afternoon through Fri before stalling E to W along about 25N late Fri then gradually dissipating. High pressure N of the front will sink S to along 30N by Fri night and persist through the weekend. A broad inverted trough will persist N of Hispaniola through Fri.
