Easterly and gentle to fresh; force 3 to 5 (12 to 39 km/h, 7 to 21 knots). Mainly during daytime or in showers, occasionally strong to near gale force in gusts; force 6 to 7 (40 to 61 km/h, 22 to 33 knots).
The combination of a westward moving tropical wave and an upper-level disturbance was located early this morning over the eastern Caribbean Sea and it will approach our region later today and tonight. These systems will cause a few periods with more clouds with locally a couple of showers today and especially on Friday. Furthermore, the pressure gradient will continue to be unusually tight in our region for this time of the year and that will result in a rather windy condition across the area throughout the remainder of this week.
Moderate to fairly rough with wave heights of 1.5 to 2.5 meters (4 to 8 feet). Due to locally fairly rough conditions boaters and swimmers should take account of this (Code Yellow) and not venture far from shore.
Significant tropical weather systems:
