.SYNOPSIS...Strong high pres over the NW Atlc will dominate the
region as it remains centered near Bermuda through the end of the
week. Fresh to strong trade winds will prevail across the
Caribbean and Tropical N Atlc waters through Fri night, with
nocturnal winds pulsing to gale force along the Colombia coast.
The strong high will weaken this weekend into early next week,
