Synopsis for Caribbean Sea and Tropical N Atlantic from 07N to
19N between 55W and 64W
1126 PM EDT Wed May 18 2022
.SYNOPSIS...Surface ridging over the western Atlantic will
continue to support moderate to fresh trade winds across the
east and central Caribbean through Thu, with fresh to strong
winds pulsing off northwest Venezuela through early Thu morning.
Winds and seas across the basin will increase Thu night into the
weekend as the ridge strengthens and broad low pressure forms
over Central America. The strongest winds are expected to be over
the northwest and south-central Caribbean during this period.
Looking ahead, winds and seas will start to diminish over the
eastern and central Caribbean early next week as the low weakens.
