Weather Forecast for Curacao and surroundings valid until Sunday evening 18:00 l.t., April 30, 2017.

Issued:
Saturday April 29, 2017 17:00 l.t. (21:00 UTC).

CODE YELLOW: PRECAUTION FOR SMALL CRAFT DUE TO FAIRLY ROUGH SEAS.

Weather:
Generally partly cloudy and mainly dry weather will prevail. Sunday morning, a short cloudy spell with a few light shower activity possible. Forecast high will be 32ºC, and the low will be 27ºC. Sunrise will occur at 06:17 and sunset at 18:49.

Easterly and moderate to fresh; force 4 to 5 (20 to 39 km/hr, 11 to 21 knots). Mainly during daytime, occasionally strong to near gale in gusts; force 6 to 7 (40 to 61 km/hr, 22 to 33 knots).

Synopsis:
Due to a tight pressure gradient across the Caribbean region this wind regime is generating a fresh to strong air flow over the island. A generally dry weather is also foreseen throughout this current weekend. On the other hand, the event of an occasional strong wind which leads to fairly rough seas, will continue today and on Sunday as well.

Sea conditions:
Generally moderate to locally fairly rough with waves of 1.5 and 2.5 meter (5 to 8 feet). The southern protected waters should have waves around 1 meter ( 3 foot). The highest waves are over the northern and eastern waters. Small craft operators should be carefully over these zones.

Special features:
None.

Outlook until Monday midday:
Variably cloudy, less breezy with a greater chance of a couple of morning showers.
