The relative tight pressure gradient between the
Atlantic high pressure and the low over northern
Colombia will support moderate to fresh, at times
strong to near gale force winds in gusts. A tropical
wave is moving through the eastern Caribbean and will
induce some moisture leading to a passing to brief
shower during the morning hours. Dry weather will
eventually prevail. Otherwise, Saharan Dust will
linger in the Caribbean Area during the next few
days, reducing the visibility.

Slight seas are in place on the protected sites with
moderate seas on the south sites. Generally moderate
seas are in place over the east to northwest coastal
regions.
