Update, E Caribbean,Sat24, 8a

Update, E Caribbean Sat24, 8a ASCAT: Venezuela Coast to Virgin Islands between 63W- 67W ESE15-20kts. N of Virgin Islands ESE10-15kts. IMAGERY: Squalls winds gusts30kts S of DomRep. Light Showers over Puerto Rico and E of the Virgin Islands. Showers/Squalls from Virgin Islands W of the Windward/Leeward Islands ahead of Tropical Wave. SYNOPSIS: Bonnie is now a Tropical Depression. At 4:00 AM CDT TD Bonnie was located near 27N 85.1W with max sustained winds of 30kts and is moving WNW at 15kts. Earlier this morning satellite imagery indicated a burst in convection near the center of Bonnie, however the most recent satellite images are showing a marked decline in the convection. The last RECON Flight posted flight level winds near 40kts and a 1023MB minimum in SLP. This would indicate that TD Bonnie while maintaining Tropical Depression status and has of yet started any redevelopment. Bonnie is tracking around the periphery of a High pressure in the Carolinas and the Upper-level Low over Mexico. The current forecasts have Bonnie reaching the Gulf Coast near the Louisiana/Mississippi this evening or early tomorrow, Sun25, morning. Winds in squalls ahead of and near Bonnie could reach 45-50kts. However, upper-level shear is forecasted to continue along TD Bonnie┬'s path which should hinder any redevelopment of B onnie back to a Tropical Storm. Global models are indicating that Bonnie may dissipate into a trof later today with no closed circulation. With all this mind Bonnie will impact the Gulf Coast with winds in squalls reaching 35G50kts and rough seas 5-6ft thru the next 24hrs. If redevelopment occurs Bonnie will reach land with the maximum impact a minimal Tropical Storm. In the E Caribbean a Tropical Wave is located just W of the Windward and Leeward Islands. Satellite imagery overnight indicated some light showers over the Northern Windward Islands and extending to the Virgin Islands. A stronger area of showers are now developing W of the Windward and Southern Leeward Islands. Scattered showers are still indicated in the Virgin Islands spreading W to Puerto Rico. Wave will continue to move W providing an increase in convection over Puerto Rico today. By this evening the wave will be just E of Puerto Rico and extend S to near Margarita. By Sunday evening the Wave will be in the Mona passage stretching down to the ABC┬'s. Showers and moderate squalls will continue near DomRep and W Puerto Rico. Mon26 Wave will enter the W Caribbean stretching from W Haiti S to NE tip of Columbia. Dryer conditions should move into the NE E Caribbean early next week. The next wave to move into the E Caribbean is located to the E near 48W moving W at 17kts it should move into the E Caribbean Wed28. F'cst: Precip: DomRep: Showers/TSTMS possible thru Mon26. VirginIslands & PuertoRico: Scattered Showers/TSTMS today should end early afternoon in the Virgin Islands and continue in Puerto Rico thru Sun25.

Update, E Caribbean, Fri23, 8a

Update, E Caribbean Fri23, 8a ASCAT: Trinidad N to VirginIsland ENE10-15kts. IMAGERY: Aread of showers still lingering over Puerto Rico and South of DomREP. Some widely scattered showers over the VirginIslands. Windward/Leeward Islands clearing. SYNOPSIS: This morning Tropical Storm Bonnie was located Near 24N 78.5W or just W of Andros Island and moving WNW16kts. At 6:00 am EDT Nassau Airport was reporting Mostly Cloudy conditions with Winds from the SE/15kts with rising Sea Level Pressure. Satellite is indicating an area of strong TSTMSs to the N of the Andros Island and Moderate to Strong Squalls to the E of Andros from Eleuthera to just W of the Abacos. Today Bonnie is projected to move to the NW over the N Keys and the Southern Tip of Fla. Model analysis, satellite data, and most recent Storm Hunter Data are indicating that Bonnie is not well defined and appears to be weakening. Bonnie could become a weak trof as she continues moving NW and picks up speed. The upper-air environment immediately ahead of Bonnie is lest favorable for further development so expect Bonnie to remain a Tropical Storm or weaken slightly over the next 48 hours. However Upper-Level wind shear could weaken in 36-48 hours which will help in redevelop or maintaining Bonnie as Tropical Strom past 48Hrs. By early Fri23 evening Bonnie should be near 25.5N 81W max winds 35kts. By 24/06Z 26.2N 84.1W Max Wind 40kts. By 25/06Z 28.8N 89.1W Max Wind 40kts. By 26/06Z 31.5N 92W Wind 25kts (Inland) . Today Sustained winds of 20-25G30kts are likely in the N Bahamas, Southern Fla, and Fla. Keys Fri.23. Winds in Squalls could reach 35-40kts as Bonnie moves thru Fla, In the E Caribbean light pressure gradient thru tonight then Atlantic High will begin to ridge back into the area Sat24-Wed28 producing some more brisk winds in the E Caribbean from the Central Windward Islands N to VirginIslands and the DomRep. Fair weather today-Sun25 over the E Caribbean from Puerto Rico and E to VirginIslands and S to Venezuela, WAVES: This mornings analysis has a high amplitude wave located near 50W streaching from 5N-21N and move W at 14kts there is little activity indicated near the wave on this mornings satellite, Wave will be approaching the E Caribbean Sun25-Mon26. Second Wave is near 30W move E at 17kts. There are scattered showers associated with the wave and it will follow the first thru the E Caribbean Wed28. F'cst: Precip: DomRep: Clearing this afternoon with next chance of TSTMS Sun25. VirginIslands & PuertoRico: Scattered Showers/today should end this morning.

Southern Bahamas: Showers/TSTMS will increase over the SE Bahamas this morning. Most of the strong Squalls are currently N of the T&Cs. Winds 20-25kts in the Northern section of the trof from the T&Cs to the S tip of the Exumas. Wave will continue to move W-NW over the next few days producing heavy showers and TSTMS in the Bahamas, Cuba and Southern Fla. It appears today the trof will take a more westerly route to the Gulf of Mexico. While no closed circulation is projected the area of cyclonic turning in the trof axis will travel up the Great Bahama Bank to S Fla then into the Gulf of Mexico. By Thu23 evening the Trof Axis will run from Cuba near 21.4N 78.2W to just N of Cat Island near 25.6N 75.3W. Winds from the E-NE 20-25G30kts from Cat Island to Nassau. Strongest Showers/TSTMS winds to 35kts are expected at and along the Northern end of the trof. By Fri23 morning the trof will have moved to the WNW and now extend for W Cuba thru the Fla. Straits to the SE C oast of Fla. Heavy showers/TSTSM along the Fla. Keys to Se Fla. are indicated and winds are clocking from the NE to SE at 20-25kts as the trof moves thru the N Bahamas to Fla. By Sat24 morning there is a slight chance of a weak closed sfc circulation in the Gulf of Mexico near 26N 85.4W Winds in the Northern quadrants will be 20G25kts. Circulation continues to the NW, and by Sun25 will be near the Louisiana/Texas Coast.

E Caribbean: Today should be the last day of the strong showers as trof in the Bahamas moves to the NW. Fri23 drier air will move into the region. There is a slight chance of a brief increase in activity Sat24 afternoon as moisture briefly spikes and combines with some dry air aloft raising a risk of strong to severe TSTMS. Late Sunday as high pressure in the Atlantic relaxes sfc winds will diminish cutting off the low level influx of moisture and only widely scattered showers are likely early next week. WAVES: Currently only two other waves are in the S Atlantic. Wave 1: Near 39W stretches from 2N to 18N and moving W at 14kts. It will be moving near the E Caribbean waters early next week, and looks like it may take a Northern route in to the Bahamas. Wave 2: Near 38W stretches from 7N-13N will approach the E Caribbean end of next week. F'cst: Precip: DomRep: Clearing this afternoon with next chance of TSTMS Sat24.
