Tropical Weather Discussion
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 705 PM EST Sun Feb 19 2017 Tropical Weather Discussion for North America, Central America Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, northern sections of South America, and Atlantic Ocean to the African coast from the Equator to 32N. The following information is based on satellite imagery, weather observations, radar and meteorological analysis. Based on 1800 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through 2315 UTC.
Monsoon Trough And Intertropical Convergence Zone - ITCZ

(The ITCZ is also known by sailors as the doldrums) The Monsoon Trough extends from the African coast near 06N10W to 04N15W. The ITCZ extends from 04N15W to 03S30W to the South American Coast near 02S45W. Isolated moderate convection is from 03S-06N between 17W-42W.
Gulf Of Mexico
A weak cold front extends from S Florida near 27N80W to the SE Gulf of Mexico near 27N83W. A dissipating cold front continues to 28N88W. Radar imagery shows the front is mostly void of precipitation. Winds N of the front are only 10 kt from the NE. The W Gulf, W of 90W, has a tighter surface pressure gradient thus winds are 10-15 kt from the SE. In the upper levels, an upper level ridge is over the Gulf with axis along 87W. Upper level moisture is over Texas and the W Gulf. Strong subsidence is over the E Gulf. Expect over the next several hours for the cold front over S Florida to move E into the Atlantic with little effect. Expect in 24 hours for a cold front to be along the coast of Texas with convection. Also expect an upper level trough to be over Texas and the W Gulf supporting the cold front.
Caribbean Sea
The tail-end of a cold front is over the NE Caribbean from 19N60W to Puerto Rico to E Hispaniola near 18N70W. Scattered showers are N of front to 21N. Elsewhere, scattered showers are over E Venezuela, W Panama, Costa Rica, E Cuba, and Jamaica. 10- 25 kt tradewinds are over the Caribbean with strongest winds along the coast of N Colombia, and over the NW Caribbean. In the upper levels, an upper level high is over the SW Caribbean Sea near 10N80W. Strong subsidence is over the entire Caribbean. Expect over the next 24 hours for the front to linger over the N Leeward Islands with showers. Also expect in 24 hours for a W Atlantic front to move to N of Hispaniola with more convection.
Hispaniola
Scattered showers are now over Hispaniola. Expect showers to persist for the next 24 hours.
Atlantic Ocean
A 1011 mb low is centered over the W Atlantic near 31N73W. A cold front extends SW to S Florida near 27N80W. Scattered showers are within 90 nm of the front. A prefrontal trough extends from 28N73W to 26N78W. Scattered moderate convection is within 60 nm of the trough. A 1022 mb high is centered over the W Atlantic near 30N59W. A cold front is over the central Atlantic from 31N41W to 23N50W to 19N60W. Scattered showers are within 90 nm of the front. A 1035 mb high is centered N of the Azores near 42N23W with a ridge axis extending S to the E Atlantic near 23N30W. Of note in the upper levels, an upper level trough is over the W Atlantic N of 24N W of 65W supporting the W Atlantic front. Another upper level trough is over the central Atlantic N of 20N between 35W-50W supporting the central Atlantic front. Expect over the next 24 hours for both cold fronts to move E with convection and showers. Formosa
