Synopsis At the surface, high pressure system will continue to
dominate the local region through the weekend. A patch of low
level moisture will move across the region today. A sharp increase
in low level moisture is expected early next week. Upper level trough
will dominates the western atlantic Monday through Wednesday next

Short term Short term... Today through Sunday...

a patch of moisture is expected to move in today, the rainfall has
already made an impact with numerous showers affecting eastern pr
during the overnight hours. This moisture will combine with the
local effects this afternoon and help develop scattered to locally
numerous showers with isolated thunderstorms over the interior into
nw-pr, with showers and thunderstorms possibly streaming off of the
luquillo mountain range into the san juan metro area. On Sunday,
drier air is expected in and wind flow may shift a bit to the ene,
which may cause afternoon convection across W and sw-pr with
isolated showers elsewhere. Both Saturday and Sunday, we may observe
isolated to scattered brief showers across the local waters,
usvi, and eastern pr in the nighttime and early morning hours.

Monday may be a bit more active if the guidance were to verify. We
have additional moisture moving in again and the wind flow becomes
easterly. There is also an upper trough that may be digging just
west of the local islands, increasing instability and also
increasing the chances for thunderstorms over the local islands,
especially over several sectors in puerto rico when the moisture,
diurnal heating and instability all combine on Monday afternoon.

Isolated to scattered showers can be expected for the usvi during
the day with showers possibly streaming off the islands.

Long term Monday through Saturday...

for Monday into Tuesday, a sharp increase in low level moisture
is forecast to occur, with best moisture and favorable upper level
atmospheric conditions expected on Tuesday. As a result, an
increase in showers and thunderstorms are expected by early next
week. By late in the forecast period, drier air mass is expected
to encompass the region from the east.

Aviation Vfr conds in the morning hours across the local
terminals. Shra shra expected this afternoon may cause moments of
MVFR across tjsj, tjmz, and tjbq after 21 16z. Tempo groups were
left out due to exact location uncertainty since guidance suggests
that the activity will be mostly in the vicinity. Winds will be from
the east at around 15kt and gusty.

Marine Seas will slowly diminish and most areas will come below
7 feet this morning. However, seas at 7 feet are expected to
continue across the offshore atlantic waters through this evening.

Elsewhere, small craft should exercise caution.

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. 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.
