MARINE FORECAST FOR SEAS AROUND CURAƇAO:

Synopsis:
During the next 24 hours a temporary increase of the humidity at the lower to
mid-levels of the atmosphere will favor clouds to increase over the local area
that could induce a light shower, mainly during the morning hours. Furthermore,
a greater air pressure difference will account for stronger winds over the
southern Caribbean.

Partly to temporarily mostly cloudy with a chance of a light isolated shower.

Visibility:
30 to 50 kilometer.

Easterly and moderate to fresh; force 4 to 5 (20 to 39 km/h, 11 to 21 knots). A
few occasional gusts to strong; force 6 (40 to 50 km/h, 22 to 27 knots).
