Fresh to strong trade winds will prevail in the south- central Caribbean Sea through Sat night. Winds will reach near gale force along the coast of Colombia at night through Wed night, then minimal gale force winds will be possible off the coast of Colombia each night Thu night through Sat night. Moderate to locally fresh trade winds will prevail elsewhere.


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

A cold front extending from 29N61W to 25N69W to just S of Andros Island in the Bahamas will reach from 27N65W to the southern Bahamas Wed, then stall and weaken from 26N65W to Turks and Caicos on Thu.
