A cloudy blanket

Cruise ships arrived in Grand Cayman under menacing clouds this morning, but it didn’t stop tenders from trekking out to take visiting tourists to the island’s shores. Weather charts indicate that the high-pressure system over the western Atlantic Ocean continues to dominate the flow over the western Caribbean. The influence over the northwest Caribbean by this high-pressure system should begin to weaken as a cold front over Texas pushes into the Gulf of Mexico today and reaches the Yucatan peninsula by tomorrow.Photo: Tammie C.
