Skies will be mostly cloudy. There is a very slight chance of scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms, especially during the early morning, late night hours. Winds will be moderate and easterly in direction at 10 mph to 30 mph or less. Seas will be  moderate to calm at 2 to 4 ft. or higher. The air temperatures will range from the high 70sºF to the mid to high 80s ºF or 26°C to 27ºC. Ocean water temperatures are 80°F to 82°F or 26ºC to 27ºC.






The Tropical Weather Outlook
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:1. Gulf of Mexico - Weak high pressure will prevail over the NE Gulf through Mon. A weak cold front will reach the NW Gulf Mon night...then stall and dissipate in the northern Gulf through Tue night. Seas will remain 3 ft or less across most of the basin through Thu.
2. Caribbean Sea - High pressure building over the western Atlantic will support moderate to fresh trades in the S central Caribbean and gentle to moderate trades elsewhere through Mon night. A tropical wave along 59W will cross the Lesser Antilles today. A tropical wave and low pressure near 39W will cross 55W Tue and move across the Windward Islands into the E Caribbean Wed. A tropical cyclone may develop from this system in the west-central Atlantic before reaching the Lesser Antilles.

4a. A tropical wave in the east Tropical Atlantic extends its axis from 14N34W to a 1011 mb surface low centered near 07N35W, moving west near 20 kt over the past 24 hours. This wave coincides with a 700 mb trough noted in model guidance and is embedded within a surge of moisture as seen in TPW imagery. Scattered moderate convection has developed in the vicinity of these features extending from 06N-14N between 35W-42W.
4b. A tropical wave in the west-central Tropical Atlantic extends its axis from 22N57W to 12N58W, moving west near 15 kt over the past 24 hours. The wave coincides with a 700 mb trough depicted in model guidance and is embedded within an surge of moderate moisture as seen in TPW imagery. Isolated moderate convection prevails along the southern portion of the wave's axis south of 14N between 57W-60W.
4c. A tropical wave extends from the southern portion of Mexico into the EPAC waters from 19N96W to 08N96W. This wave has moved west at about 5-10 kt over the past 24 hours. A 700 mb trough is depicted by global guidance near this area and abundant moisture is noted in TPW imagery. Scattered moderate convection prevails in the wave's environment mainly between 93W-102W affecting the southern portion of the Bay of Campeche mainly south of 20N between 93W-97W.
