Synopsis.....A stationary front just NW of the Yucatan Channel will begin to
drift NW-N and
gradually dissipate Thu. Another cold front will move into the far NW Caribbean
late Fri,
gradually stalling after reaching eastern Cuba to Nicaragua Sun. The remnants of
the
front will linger roughly along 80W for the start of next week. Fresh to strong
N winds
will follow this next cold front as it moves across the NW Caribbean. Otherwise,
a weak pres gradient across the basin will lead to generally moderate
tradewinds.
NE swell will impact the Atlantic as well as Caribbean passages Fri through
the weekend and into early next week.
