|Absent perturbing Wx features, Luperón will have this typical winter cycle of Wx until mid-April|
When the troughy "tween season" of mid-October to mid-December has ended, SE Tropical Waves shall have given over to NW Cold Fronts.
A front coming off the U.S. coast may take 3 days to shed swell to Luperón where you will hear it sound in the blowholes at night. The swell at Luperón will veer from N to NE as the low pressure center towing its front makes its way to England.
Banks north of us — Bahamas, Caicos, Turks, Muchoir, Silver and Navidad — reduce and diffract the swell, so it shall differ from the swell in the forecasts. Experienced north coast sailors can use this knowledge to "lengthen" otherwise short windows from port to port along the coast.
