Update Just a quick update to the zone and marine forecasts to
increase the chances for showers and thunderstorms over the
caribbean waters and over st. Croix in the usvi. Doppler radar and
satellite images were indicating that showers thunderstorms on the
periphery of TS harvey were increasing from just south of st.

Croix and through the offshore caribbean waters of puerto rico.

Will expect this trend to continue through at least the afternoon
hours with a gradual improvement after that. A few of these
showers thunderstorms could produce wind gusts to 30 mph (25
knots).

Prev discussion issued 520 am ast Sat aug 19 2017
synopsis... Tropical storm harvey will continue to move westward
across the caribbean sea, passing well south of the forecast area
throughout the day. The chance for showers and thunderstorms are
expected to increase across the local isles during the weekend as
the peripheral moisture of TS harvey reaches the forecast area as
well as invest 92l likely to move northeast of the area on
Sunday-mon.

Short term... Today through Monday...

partly cloudy skies prevailed across puerto rico and the u.S.

Virgin islands overnight. Some showers affected mainly the
northern u.S. Virgin islands and the eastern half of puerto rico.

Some of these showers produced brief periods of moderate to heavy
rainfall.

An increase in shower activity is expected today as trade winds will
transport patches of low level moisture across the region. This
moisture in combination with daytime heating and local effects will
produce scattered showers with isolated thunderstorms this afternoon
mainly across the cordillera central of puerto rico. In the meantime,
tropical storm harvey will continue to pass well south of the region
today.

By Sunday, an area of low pressure is expected to pass mainly north
of the area. However, plenty of moisture associated with this system
will aid in the development of showers and thunderstorms once again
Sunday afternoon and will continue into the early morning hours on
Monday. By Monday afternoon, at this time, showers and thunderstorms
are expected to develop mainly north of the cordillera central of
puerto rico. Rest of the area, some passing showers are expected.

Long term... Tuesday through Sunday...

as moisture associated with invest 92l moves away, a drier air
mass in expected to encompass the forecast area on Tuesday. This
drier air mass is expected to be short-lived as a mid to upper
level trough establishes north enhancing moisture advection wed-
thu. By the end of the workweek and into the upcoming weekend, a
mid level ridge is then expected to build across the central
atlantic and into the northeast caribbean to result once again in
moisture erosion. Therefore a seasonal weather pattern is expected
to prevail much of the forecast period with locally induced
showers and thunderstorms each day. At this time, the best chance
for shower and thunder activity is expected wed-thu due to
moisture advection as the proximity of the upper trough.

Aviation... MainlyVFR conditions will prevail across all TAF sites
through at least 19 16z. Periods of MVFR conditions with mountain
obscurations will prevail across tjbq and tjmz from 19 16z through
19 22z in shra tsra. Vcsh can be expected elsewhere.

Marine... Tropical storm harvey will continue to move westward
across the caribbean sea, passing well south of the forecast area
throughout the day. This will result in hazardous seas 8 to 10
feet and winds 20 to 25 knots particularly across the caribbean
waters and local passages. Hazardous seas will continue to prevail
across the offshore atlantic waters through Monday as an area of
low pressure east northeast of the leeward islands moves to the
northeast of the forecast area.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
