Synopsis Strong surface high pressure will remain anchored across the west
and central atlantic to maintain a moderate east to southeast
trade wind flow through the end of the work week. A weak tropical
wave is forecast to enter and move across the eastern caribbean by
mid week. A low to mid level trough will approach the region
during the weekend.

Short term Tonight through Wednesday...

modest low level moisture and dry air aloft favoring strong morning
insolation coupled with low 500 mb temperatures create an unstable
atmosphere for afternoon thunderstorms today and Tuesday.

Convection will die shortly after sunset each day. The northerly
upper level jet over puerto rico around an upper level low just
north of the leeward islands will also increase ventilation where
convergence divergence remains neutral. The low will move southeast
into the windward islands Wednesday and the jet will shift with it,
but better moisture at most levels will increase showers and
thunderstorms over the area then. Easterly winds at the surface will
shift to east southeast midday on Wednesday and shower and
thunderstorms will then focus more in northwest puerto rico. The u.S.

Virgin islands will continue to see isolated showers and streamers
downstream from the islands.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday...

an upper level ridge will remain across the local area through
the weekend. However, at lower level, an increase in moisture is
expected Saturday and Sunday as a low to mid level trough moves
through the region. By early next week, the upper ridge will be
eroded by an upper level trough which will retrograde west across
the local region.

Aviation MostlyVFR conditions expected across all terminals
throughout the forecast period, however tsra ovr WRN pr will bring
MVFR ifr in lwr CIGS vsbys and some mtn obscurations. E winds of 10-
15 kt excpt for sea breeze influences diminishing below 12 kt after

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com 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.
