(CMR) The Cayman Islands National Weather Service says it is monitoring a cold front that is expected to move over the northwest Caribbean on Sunday evening, 4 February.
A strong high-pressure system exists behind the front and is forecasted to produce near-gale force winds and very rough seas across the area.
Given the latest forecast information, marine conditions are expected to deteriorate on Monday, 5 February. A Marine Warning is expected to be in place for Monday and Tuesday with very rough seas and strong winds.
Given the forecast for westerly winds, the west coast of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman could potentially experience more significant impacts than other coastal areas.
Residents should be aware that swells could start affecting the western coasts, including Seven Mile Beach and the George Town Harbour area, on Sunday. Owners of vessels are urged to secure them.
