Short term
Mainly light easterly to southeasterly flow will continue through
Wednesday with saharan dust moving across the region, allowing for
drier weather to affect the islands. With abundant low-level
moisture and light winds near the surface, isolated seabreeze
activity will still be possible and in the higher terrain, with a
couple heavy downpours due to high precipitable water values.

Still, this period will promote a favorable respite in the weather
pattern, and should help the recovery efforts across puerto rico
and the u.S. Virgin islands.

With decreased rain chances and light winds, conditions will be
very uncomfortable Tuesday and Wednesday with heat indices in the
mid to upper 90s for much of the lower elevations of puerto rico.

Across area beaches, especially on the northern atlantic side of
the islands, long-period swells will continue to produce life-
threatening rip currents today. A high risk of rip currents is in
effect for much of the coastlines through this evening.

Long term
Precipitation chances will increase by Thursday with scattered showers
and thunderstorms possible through the weekend. Model guidance
shows the potential for heavy rainfall Friday and Saturday, which
would aggravate already swollen rivers and and low-lying areas
that experienced recent flooding. Recovery efforts will need to
keep a very close eye on thunderstorms during this period, as
additional flooding will be possible.

Aviation
A few isolated showers and storms will be possible
today in the interior portions of puerto rico and in the higher
terrain, however, most areas should remain on the dry side.VFR
conditions will likely prevail through the period with exception
to in or around convection where ceilings may briefly drop to
MVFR.

Marine
Hurricane maria, well to the north, is still producing long-
period swells into mainly the northern atlantic side of puerto
rico with seas ranging from 4 to 6 feet through the end of the
week. Small craft should exercise caution in these areas. Drier
weather will return to the region Tuesday and Wednesday with
deeper tropical moisture returning thereafter. Shower and
thunderstorm chances will increase by Thursday and into the
weekend.

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.
