Skies will be mostly cloudy. There is a very slight chance of scattered rain showers. Winds will be westerly in direction at 5 mph to 10 mph or less. Seas will be  calm at 1 to 3 ft or less.  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 ridging N of the area will support gentle to moderate E to NE winds and 2 to 4 ft seas across the region through sun. A weak disturbance moving into the SE Gulf Sun will weaken into a trough across the central Gulf through tue.
2. Caribbean Sea - Long period swell generated by Tropical Storm Gaston will propagate into the tropical waters N of 18N E of 57W today. Gentle to moderate trade winds will prevail across most of the area this weekend. Fresh to strong trades will develop over the S central Caribbean early next week.
3. ...Special Features...
3a. Tropical Storm Gaston is centered near 27.9N 52.0W at 27/0900 UTC or about 715 nm east-southeast of Bermuda moving northwest at 13 kt. Estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb. Maximum sustained wind speed is 55 kt with gusts to 65 kt. Scattered moderate to isolated strong convection is from 27N-31N between 49W-55W.
4...Tropical Waves...
4a. Tropical wave in the east Tropical Atlantic extends along 27W from 10N-15N moving west near 10 kt over the past 24 hours. Wave is embedded within an area of dry stable air, thus no associated showers or convection.
4b. Tropical wave in the W Caribbean extends from 20N80W to 11N83W moving west 10 to 15 over past 24 hours. Wave coincides with a well defined 700 mb global model trough and is embedded within an area of deep moisture. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are from 19N to the coast of Central America between the wave and 88W.

The Tropical Weather Outlook
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. Gulf of Mexico - A ridge over the northern Gulf coast will maintain gentle to moderate winds across the area through Sat night. A tropical low...possible tropical cyclone...could move into the eastern Gulf on Sun or Mon and cause winds and seas in this area to increase.
2. Caribbean Sea - Long period swell generated by Tropical Storm Gaston will propagate into the tropical waters N of 18N E of 57W Fri. A relatively small difference in pressure between a ridge to the N and low pressure over South America will maintain gentle to moderate trade winds across most of the area through the weekend. Heavy rainfall will be possible over the Greater Antilles through Sat.
3. Special Features...
Tropical Storm Gaston is centered near 23.9N 47.6W at 26/0900 UTC or about 980 nm east-northeast of the Leeward Islands and about 1140 nm east-southeast of Bermuda moving northwest at 15 kt.

The Tropical Weather Outlook
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
1. Gulf of Mexico - A ridge over the northern Gulf coast will maintain gentle to moderate winds across the area through Sat. A tropical low is expected to move into the eastern Gulf Sun and Mon. The winds and seas associated with this low remain very uncertain.
2. Caribbean Sea - A weak pressure gradient will maintain gentle to moderate trade winds across most of the area through the weekend. Long period swell generated by Hurricane Gaston will propagate into the tropical waters N of 18N E of 57W Fri.
3.Hurricane Gaston is centered near 19.5N 43.3W at 25/0900 UTC or about 1065 nm east of the Leeward Islands moving northwest at 15 kt. Estimated minimum central pressure is 988 mb. Maximum sustained wind speed is 65 kt with gusts to 80 kt. Scattered moderate to isolated strong convection is from 18N-24N between 39W-45W.
4. Gale Warning for Southwest Atlantic... A Gale warning has been issued for the area northeast of a broad area of low pressure analyzed as a 1008 mb low north of Hispaniola near 21N68.5W. These winds are expected to continue for the next 24 hours. Scattered moderate to isolated strong convection is from 17N-21N between 66W-69W including portions of Puerto Rico and the Mona Passage, and from 17N to over Hispaniola between 69W-73W. Environmental conditions have the potential to become more conducive for tropical development over the weekend when the system is near the central or northwestern Bahamas. Regardless of development, gusty winds, heavy rains, and possible flash floods and mudslides are likely to occur over portions of Puerto Rico, the Turks and Caicos, Hispaniola, and the southeastern and central Bahamas during the next couple of days. There is a medium chance of tropical development in the next 48 hours.

The Tropical Weather Outlook
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:1. Gulf of Mexico - A tropical wave will pass W through the Bay of Campeche today. A thermal trough will develop over the Yucatan Peninsula during the late afternoons and continue into the early evenings. The trough will lose identity near 22N94W by late each morning. A surface high over the N central Gulf will shift N of the area on Wed leaving a NE to SW ridge ac0ross the northern Gulf waters on Thu and fri.
2. Caribbean Sea - Strong NE trades will continue along the NW coast of Colombia this morning and develop again tonight. A tropical low is currently near 16.5N 55.5W along a tropical wave. The low and wave will track nw across the NE Caribbean passing near the Virgin Islands tonight...and passing N of Puerto Rico on Wed... with the strongest winds over the NE quadrant. The low may develop into a tropical cyclone. Tropical cyclone Gaston is expected to pass E of the area...but long period swells resulting in combined seas of 7-10 ft will propagate into the tropical waters N of 15N E of 60W on Fri and Sat.
3....Special Features...
3a. Tropical Depression Fiona is centered near 25.8N 63.4W at 23/0900 UTC or about 456 nm north of the northern Leeward Islands, moving west-northwest at 11 kt. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1010 mb. Maximum sustained wind speed is 30 kt with gusts to 40kt. Scattered showers and isolated tstms are from 24N to 26N between 61W and 64W.
3b. Tropical Storm Gaston is centered near 13.2N 32.4W at 23/0900 UTC or about 474 nm west of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands, moving west at 17 kt. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb. Maximum sustained wind speed is 45 kt with gusts to 55 kt. Scattered showers are from 10N to 16N between 30W and 35W.
3c. A tropical wave is located about 348 nm east-southeast of the Leeward Islands extending from 11N to 21N with axis near 55W. The wave is associated with a 1009 mb low located near 16N55W and has been moving west-northwest at 15-20 kt within the last 24 hours. Moisture has increased in the wave environment, which along with favorable deep layer wind shear and upper level diffluence support heavy showers and isolated tstms from 13N to 20N between 53W and 58W. Large-scale conditions could become more conducive later this week while the system moves near Hispaniola and then the southeastern and central Bahamas. Despite of any tropical development, gusty winds, heavy rains, and possible flash floods and mud slides could occur over these areas. This system has a medium chance for tropical formation within the next 48 hours.

Monday, August 22, 2016
Skies will be mostly cloudy. Winds will be easterly in direction at 10 mph to 30 mph. Seas will be  moderate to rough  at 2 to 4 ft or higher. Divers should exercise caution exiting and entering the boats, especially on the afternoon dives. 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 - A recurring surface trough will support fresh to strong NE to E winds along the NW coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and across the E Bay of Campeche tonight...with fresh conditions expected to develop each evening through Wed evening. A surface high over the E central Gulf will shift NW reaching near the Mississippi Delta on Tue...then shift N of the area on Wed leaving a NE to SW ridge across the northern Gulf waters on Thu with the ridge weakening on Fri.
2. Caribbean Sea - A tropical wave along 78W will move through the W Caribbean through Tue night. Strong trades across the S central Caribbean will diminish beginning Wed night. A tropical wave is along 48W with a low along wave near 15N48W. This system will reach along 55W late tonight and pass W NW through the tropical waters E of the Lesser Antilles on Tue into early Wed when it will reach the Virgin Island area. Conditions may become favorable for tropical cyclone development in 3-5 days.
3. Tropical depression Fiona is centered near 24.4N 58.4W at 22/0900 UTC or about 456 nm northeast of the northern Leeward Islands, moving west-northwest at 16 kt. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb. Maximum sustained wind speed is 30 kt with gusts to 40 kt. Scattered heavy showers and isolated tstms are from 22N to 26N between 54W and 58W.
4. ...TROPICAL WAVES...
4a. A tropical wave is in the east Atlantic extending from 06N-16N with axis near 24W, moving west at 15 kt within the last 24 hours. The wave is associated with a 1008 mb low that is centered near 11N24W. Abundant moisture in the wave environment, favorable deep layer wind shear and middle to upper level diffluence favor numerous heavy showers and isolated tstms from 09N to 15N between 25W and 28W. Scattered heavy showers are from 05N to 09N between 22W and 37W. Environmental conditions are conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to form later today while the system moves westward to west-northwestward over the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean.
4b. Tropical wave is in the central Atlantic extending from 08N-19N with axis near 47W, moving W at 15-20 kt within the last 24 hours. There is a 1010 mb low near 14N47W associated with the wave. Saharan dry air and dust in the wave environment limit the convection to scattered showers and tstms from 14N to 18N between 44W and 52W. Dry air near this system is expected to inhibit significant development during the next few days while the disturbance moves westward to west-northwestward. Environmental conditions could become more conducive for development late this week when the system is expected to move near Hispaniola and the southeastern and central Bahamas.
4c. Tropical wave is in the western Caribbean extending from 10N to 21N with axis near 80W, moving west at 15 kt within the last 24 hours. CIRA LPW imagery from the surface to 850 mb show large patches of dry air in the wave environment mainly east of the wave axis. Water vapor imagery continue to show strong dry air subsidence across this region of the Caribbean. This results in a tropical wave devoid of convection at this time.

Skies will be partly sunny. Winds will be easterly in direction at 10 mph to 30 mph. Seas will be  moderate to rough  at 2 to 4 ft or higher. Divers should exercise caution exiting and entering the boats, especially on the afternoon dives. 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 - A recurring surface trough will support strong NE to E winds along the NW coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and across the E Bay of Campeche tonight and Mon night with fresh conditions expected the remainder of the period. A surface high over the E central Gulf will shift NW reaching near the Mississippi Delta on Tue...then shift N of the area on Wed and Thu leaving an E to W ridge across the northern Gulf waters.
2. Caribbean Sea - A tropical wave currently along 72W will move W through the central Caribbean today and pass through the W Caribbean tonight through Tue night. Strong trades across the S central Caribbean will diminish some on Tue. A tropical low currently near 13N41W will pass W through the tropical waters E of the Lesser Antilles on Tue with conditions becoming more favorable for tropical cyclone development in 3 to 5 days.
3. At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Fiona was located near latitude 22.2 North, longitude 51.7 West. Fiona is moving toward the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue during the next couple of days. 4. Tropical Waves...
4a. Tropical wave is just off the west coast of Africa extending from 06N-19N with axis near 18W. There is a 1009 mb low near 12N18W associated with the wave, which is expected to move at 10-15 kt within the next 24 hours. The wave is within a moderate moist environment and it is in a region of favorable to neutral deep layer wind shear that favors scattered heavy showers and isolated tstms from 06N-15N E of 22W. Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form in a few days while the system moves westward and then northwestward over the eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean.
4b. Tropical wave is in the central Atlantic extending from 07N-18N with axis near 41W, moving W at 15-20 kt within the last 24 hours. There is a 1009 mb low near 13N41W associated with the wave. Intrusion of Saharan dry air and dust to the wave environment continue to limit the convection to scattered showers from 12N-18N between 37W and 45W. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form within the next few days while the system moves westward and then west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic Ocean, through the eastern Caribbean Sea, and then near the Greater Antilles.
4c. Tropical wave in the central Caribbean extends from 10N-20N with axis near 72W, moving W at 10 kt within the last 24 hours. Even though the wave is in a region of favorable to neutral deep layer wind shear, strong dry air subsidence from aloft inhibits convection at the time.
