...CARIBBEAN SEA & LOCAL REGION...

A tropical wave moved in the local region
westward bringing along some moisture and
unstable air. This can induce a passing
to brief shower during this forecast
period with also a slight risk of thunder.

Otherwise, Saharan Dust is present in slight
concentrations; however, a significant increase
in concentration can be expected during the
next day, resulting in a reduction in visibility
and air quality. People with respiratory
sensitivities are advised to be aware of
this.

Marine conditions: Smooth seas are in
place on the protected or sheltered
sites. Tranquil seas are noted on the
south sides. Moderate seas are in place
over the east to northwest coastal
sections with seas around 4 to 6 feet,
locally 7 feet.

Operators of small vessels must exercise
caution on the east to northwest coastal
sections.
