But especially the March temperatures may be a bit cooler due to a cold stream that circulates throughout the Caribbean during the months from March through June. Additionally, the cold stream often will be accompanied by cold fronts extending into the Caribbean from the eastern coastal United States of America and causing strong currents and turbulence in Caribbean waters, none of which leads to warmer water temperatures.
