Marine Forecast valid from 26/01/2021 to 27/01/2021

SYNOPSIS...The combination of a high pressure system north
of the Caribbean and a low over north Colombia will support
moderate to fresh, at times strong trade winds across the
region during the next day or two. Occasional gusts can
reach near gale force during this period. Moisture in the
region has increased, supporting some widely scattered
showers across the region. Otherwise, Saharan dust will
induce slightly hazy skies during the next few days.

Moderate seas on the South side and moderate to locally
fairly rough on the east to northwest coastal regions
are expected. Moderate long period northerly swells
will affect the regional waters during the next few
days, making for above normal seas on the east to
northwest coastal regions.
