Synopsis Trade wind showers across windward areas during the
morning hours, followed by afternoon shower and thunder development
particularly across west sections of puerto rico are expected
through the weekend. The chance for showers and thunderstorms will
increase across the local isles late Sunday early Monday as a
tropical wave moves across the eastern caribbean. A more seasonal
weather pattern is expected once again Tue and Wed with locally
induced afternoon showers and thunderstorms across west sections
of puerto rico. Hazy skies are also possible. A wave passage is
expected late the next workweek.

Short term Today through Monday...

passing showers moved across the local region overnight. Some
showers affected the southeast section of puerto rico with the
rest of the area only receiving light showers. A surface high
pressure will continue to dominates the local region through the
weekend. However, a tutt will establish across the northeast
caribbean through Monday. As a result, an increase in low level
moisture is expected beginning today and continuing through
Monday. In addition, a tropical wave is expected to affect the
local region Sunday night into Monday. As a result, an increase in
cloudiness with showers and thunderstorms are expected across
puerto rico and the u.S. Virgin islands mainly Monday, when the
most active weather is expected to occur.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday...

as the tropical wave moves away from the local isles late Monday
and into Tuesday, low level moisture is expected to decrease
across the eastern caribbean. However, afternoon showers with a
few thunderstorms are still expected across west puerto rico
Tuesday and Wednesday due to local effects and diurnal heating.

Hazy skies are also possible during those days. Plenty of moisture
will persist across the forecast area Thursday through at least
early the upcoming weekend as another easterly disturbance moves
across the eastern caribbean.

taf sites through at least 24 18z. Periods of MVFR conditions with
mountain obscurations can be expected across tjmz and tjbq from
24 16z through 24 22z in shra tsra. Low level winds will be mainly
east at 10 to 15 kts with higher gusts.

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.
