This NOAA satellite image taken Monday, August 08, 2011 at 10:45 AM EDT shows mostly sunny and dry conditions across the Caribbean Islands and Central America, with a few areas of active weather. A broad area of high pressure just to the east of the Greater Antilles is producing sunny skies and hot weather for most of the Caribbean Islands. However, a tropical wave over the Lesser Antilles is kicking up showers over the northern islands. To the west, onshore flow is kicking up showers and thunderstorms over parts of Central America. Meanwhile, Panama and Costa Rica are seeing mostly dry conditions. (AP PHOTO/WEATHER UNDERGROUND) less
