.SYNOPSIS...A surface trough extending from the Gulf of Honduras
to NW Honduras will drift W through Monday night. Scattered to 
numerous showers and thunderstorms over much of the western 
Caribbean will persist the next few days. This activity is 
capable of producing strong gusty winds and rough seas. A cold 
front is expected to move into the NW Caribbean on Wednesday, 
reach from near E central Cuba to NE Honduras Wednesday night, 
weaken as it reaches from eastern Cuba to NE Honduras Thursday 
and become a dissipating trough from eastern Cuba to developing 
low pressure over the Gulf of Honduras on Friday.
