High waves surge over the ironshore in downtown George Town as a cold front hit Grand Cayman on Sunday, with temperatures that dropped to the low 70s. The weather system also brought strong winds and showers throughout Grand Cayman, as well as rough seas with wave heights of 7-10 feet.
Boaters should watch for rough seas for at least the next five days as winds from the east to northeast kick up rough waves. The National Weather Service has issued a small craft warning through the week as forecasters predict seas of 6 to 8 feet Tuesday and 5 to 7 feet Wednesday.
Forecasters say higher winds and rough seas will likely move in Friday and stick around for the weekend. The National Weather Service has a small craft warning in effect as forecasters predict 15 to 20 knot winds will bring 4- to 6-foot seas starting late Friday and lasting through Sunday.
Tropical Storm Otto has formed in the southern Caribbean, and the the National Hurricane Center says it could become a hurricane during the next couple of days. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph. The storm is currently located 550 miles south of Grand Cayman and 305 miles east of Nicaragua.
Rough seas and 15 to 20 knot winds will likely continue in Cayman through the rest of the week, according to the National Weather Service, forcing tourism operators to adapt their plans as the high season gets under way. Water-sports operators said Monday that most trips to the North Sound have been canceled.
