Departamento Meteorologico Aruba


An inverted trough extends from the Atlantic into the northern
Caribbean between eastern Cuba and Hispaniola and just to the east
of Jamaica from 27N72W to 17N78W. Isolated showers are continuing
across the northern and western Caribbean. Scattered to numerous
showers are moving across and south of Hispaniola. Scattered
showers are moving east- northeast across Puerto Rico and the
Lesser Antilles. Moderate to fresh trades are over much of the
eastern and central Caribbean. Strong winds south of 13N are
near the Colombia coast and light to gentle winds are in the
northwestern Caribbean. Mid to upper level ridging is centered
over Central America, providing subsidence across the basin.

High pressure east of Bermuda will support fresh to strong trade
winds off Colombia into mid week. The winds will diminish mid to
late week as the high pressure shifts east ahead of a cold front.
The front will move into the northwest Caribbean on Wednesday,
then stall and dissipate from eastern Cuba to eastern Honduras
through the latter part of the week.
