WX ARC PLUS 2017 30 Nov

Synopsis: Good morning. Weak ridging currently exists between about 10-25N, and from the Lesser Antilles E towards 40W. Ridging will remain broad/weak thru the 02. A broad trough extending from Puerto Rico/Hispaniola NNE towards about 30N/65W will shift E thru tomorrow morning, with a weak low forming near 25N/65W. This low will strengthen while moving NE across 30N/55W thru the evening of the 02. Conclusion: A combination of weak ridging across E areas, and weak "troughing" across W areas will result in persistent E-SE thru the next few days. Areas farther east (particularly in zone PP) will see mainly longer period N-NE swell, whereas areas farther west will see more mixing of this swell with shorter period SE sets. This will especially be the case across zone RR. The highest swell. read more...

WX ARC 2017 29 Nov

Synopsis: Good morning. High pressure centered near 55N/23W will extend a strong ridge S towards about 35N. A much weaker part of this ridge will build S across the Canary Islands and SSW along the coast of Morocco/Western Sahara thru the 01, extending farther S and W towards 25N/35W thru the 02 and into the 03 . A thermal trough of low pressure extending N along the W coast of Africa (east of the Cape Verdes) will persist over the next several days. Low pressure is currently centered near 40N/40W, and will strengthen into a gale while moving SSE towards 35N/35W thru tomorrow night. The gale will then broaden and meander N towards 40N/35W thru the 02 , then slowly weakening and dissipating into the 03 . Early 03, another low will begin to form near 30N/50W and quickly move ENE towards. read more...

Ridging will tend to weaken thru today, then remain weak thru the 01 . By tomorrow morning, a trough of low pressure will begin to form, extending from the E Caribbean NNE across the Leeward Islands towards about 25N/65W. A weak area of low pressure will develop near this area, drifting E towards 25N/55W thru the 01 , then continuing NE towards about 33N/52W thru the 02 .

Synopsis: Gibraltar to E Atlantic: Good morning. A gale near 31N/27W with a cold front SW to 17N/35W will move NE while weakening into a low to near 37N/20W by overnight the 27. The cold front will lift NE and extend from the low center SW to 20N/30W by afternoon the 27. The cold front will lift NE while weakening thru the 28. High pressure near 27N/43W with a ridge S to 15N on the 27 will move E to near 30N/35W on the morning of the 28.Conclusion:Zones BB, CC and DD: The main influence of conditions across these zones will continue to be the aforementioned gale. Across the zones, both wind and seas conditions will gradually begin to ease thru today and the remainder of the forecast period as the gale weakens and shifts NE'ward. Winds and seas will be highest across the E portion of zone. read more...

WX ARC PLUS 2017 25 Nov

Synopsis: Good morning. A gale near 31N/27W will move Ne to near 37N/20W by overnight the 27. High pressure near 33N/44W with a ridge S to 20N will drift SW to near 25N/50W by tomorrow afternoon. The ridge will build S to near 15N tomorrow. The high will move E to near 25N/35W by the morning of the 28. Conclusion: With the gale mentioned above weakening, and some weak ridging building in across the area of concern, this will result in a marginal increase in E-NE trade winds across the zones. These breezes will tend to be slightly stronger across farther W zones, as these areas will be closer to the main high and experience a slightly stronger ridge. Long period N-NE swell from the same gale above will affect all of the zones, however areas farther to the east will tend to see higher sets. read more...
