Update A drier air mass has moved across the region tonight. As
a result, only isolated passing showers will affect the local
region from time to time, but overall will remain dry. A patch of
low level moisture is expected to reach the local islands early
Sunday, increasing somewhat the chances for showers. Forecast is
on track with ongoing weather situation.

Aviation Vfr conditions will prevail across all TAF sites
through the forecast period. Low level winds will continue mainly
east northeast at 15 to 20 kts.

Marine No changes from previous discussion.

synopsis... Surface high pressure continues to the north of the
local islands, causing moderate east to east northeast winds
across the local area. The local pressure gradient will tighten
early in the workweek as a stronger surface high pressure
develops across the northwestern atlantic.

Short term... Tonight through Monday... Partly cloudy skies
prevailed across puerto rico and the u.S. Virgin islands today. An
area of cloudiness moved across the area, with little
precipitation observed. Latest satelite images depicted a dry air
mass encompassing the region from the east. This dry air mass will
result in less shower activity. Partly cloudy to clear skies are
expected tonight into Sunday morning. A patch of low level
moisture embedded in the trade winds is expected to reach the
local area Sunday morning. Strong high pressure will build across
the region late Sunday into Monday, maintaining relatively dry
weather conditions across the islands.

Long term... .Long term... Tuesday through Sunday... (previous
patches of moisture will pass through at times, causing brief
showers over the local area. These showers will mainly be observed
across the local waters, usvi, vieques and culebra as well as
northern and eastern pr, especially during the nighttime and early
morning hours. A strong sfc high pressure across the northwestern
atlantic will cause the local pressure gradient to tighten early
in the workweek, which will cause windy conditions locally. These
winds will likely inhibit the usual sea breeze convergence in the
afternoon hours across western pr, which means that the areas that
could be affected by rain will probably be the local islands and
north and eastern pr, even during the daytime hours. Wednesday
looks to be the day with the best moisture so it is the day, in
the long term range of the forecast, that will likely observe the
best rainfall coverage, however, it is still expected to be
somewhat windy so the showers observe should be very brief. No
major change in the overall pattern is expected other than maybe
the wind speeds decreasing by Thursday.

Aviation... A dry air mass will limit shra across the islands, but
winds btwn 10 and 20 kt will push clouds and trade wind showers at
times mainly across tist tjsj. Shras due to diurnal effects are
expected across the SW quadrant of pr resulting in vcsh at
tjmz tjps. Sct-bkn cld lyrs nr fl025... Fl050... Fl080. Expect
easterly winds at 10-20 kt with gusts in near shra. Winds are
expected to drop around 10 kt overnight.

Marine... Seas have diminshed to around 6 feet across the local
waters.However, hazardous marine conditions are expected to
continue through at least mid next week. Seas will increase once
again late Sunday night. As a result, small craft advisories will
be in effect. Winds up to 20 knots are also expected.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
