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...

A ridge will dominate the Gulf waters into mid week producing mainly gentle to moderate winds and slight seas with the exception of moderate to locally fresh winds near the W coast of the Yucatan peninsula due to local effects. Looking ahead, the ridge will shift north starting mid week, ahead of a trough that will move westward across Florida and into the southeast Gulf.


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

The pressure gradient between the Atlantic ridge N of the area and the Colombian low will maintain fresh to strong trade winds in the south-central Caribbean through Fri. Fresh to locally strong winds are expected in the Gulf of Honduras Tue night. A tropical wave over the central Caribbean will reach the western basin tonight and move out of the basin through mid week. Another tropical wave farther east in the Atlantic will approach the eastern Caribbean by mid week, and move across the central Caribbean by late week.


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

Fresh southerly winds are expected over the waters north of 27N between 70W and 80W tonight due to the pressure gradient between high pressure to the east and lower pressure over Florida. Otherwise, expect fresh to locally strong winds off the northern coast of Hispaniola through the entire forecast period.
