Synopsis for puerto rico and the uS. Virgin islands waters... A surface high pressure moving over the western atlantic and an approaching tropical wave will result in an increase in winds and seas. Seas will therefore become hazardous beginning this evening and continuing through the end of the work week. Shower and Thunderstorm activity is expected to increase across the regional waters with the passage of the tropical wave.

Synopsis The presence of abundant low level moisture with
favorable upper level dynamics will aid in the development of
showers and isolated thunderstorms across the forecast area
through the evening hours. Overnight and early morning showers
are expected to stream over the atlantic waters into coastal areas
of northern and eastern puerto rico and the u.S. Virgin islands.

This will be followed by afternoon convection over the local
islands on Tuesday. An approaching tropical wave will deteriorate
both weather and marine conditions starting late Tuesday night.

This weather pattern is expected to continue throughout the
workweek.

Short term Tonight through Wednesday...

showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to develop and
drift west-southwestward over portions of the interior and
southwestern puerto rico, as well as downwind from EL yunque and
the local islands. This activity is expected to dissipate at
around or before sunset. In addition, showers are forecast to
continue streaming over the atlantic waters and move over coastal
areas of puerto rico and the u.S. Virgin islands through the
overnight and early morning hours. The afternoon weather pattern
will be similar to today's weather pattern, influenced by local
and diurnal effects under a west southwestward wind flow.

The national hurricane center continues to monitor a tropical
wave located about 200 miles east of the leeward islands, that is
producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms. This
disturbance has now a 50 and 90 percent formation chance through
the next 48 hours and 5 days, respectively. So far, this system is
forecast to move westward to west-northwestward for the next
several days. However, unfavorable environmental conditions and
land interaction will inhibit tropical cyclone formation before it
reaches the local area. Regardless of the evolution of this
system, model guidance continues to depict a wetter weather
pattern across the forecast area by late Tuesday night into
Thursday. Significant rainfall accumulations, gusty wind
conditions and hazardous marine conditions are expected as the
main impacts from this system as it moves across the forecast
area.

Long term Thursday through Monday... Issued 504 am ast Mon nov
12 2018...

the active aforementioned tropical wave located east of the
lesser antilles is still forecast to develop and move north of the
islands by Thursday based on the most recent guidance from the
national hurricane center. There is a slight toss up between both
gfs and ECMWF model guidance about how much this system develops,
but so far the GFS has initialized fairly well based on present
weather pattern and the location of this feature. Most recent
guidance from the national hurricane center this feature suggests
a 70 percent chance of development in the next 5 days. Regardless
of how much this active wave develops during the next few days,
expect a much wetter and unstable weather pattern for the forecast
areas through at least Thursday or early Friday, as the deep
layered trough pattern is to develop and linger across the region
through the end of the work week. This expected scenario will
provide favorable upper level support with good divergence aloft
and extensive pooling of moisture and low level convergence due to
a moist and dominant southeasterly wind flow, forecast to
continue through the end of the week.

By Saturday and through the early part of the following week, a
mid to upper level ridge is then forecast to build across the
region once again. This change in the overall pattern will aid in
cutting off and suppressing widespread convective development. In
addition, the atlantic surface high pressure ridge is to build
north of the region and thus tighten the local pressure gradient.

This will lead to increasing easterly trade winds. By then,
periods of showers and thunderstorm activity if any, should be
limited to the overnight and early morning hours, followed by a
more typical limited afternoon convection each day. Somewhat
breezier conditions will also be possible during the latter part
of the period, therefore daytime afternoon shower activity may be
in the form of streamers and quick passing.

Aviation...VFR conds are prevailing across all terminal sites
with easterly winds of 10 to 15 kt with higher gusts up to 30 kts.

Shra iso tsra have started to develop over portions of eastern,
interior and western areas of puerto rico, and are affecting
terminals tjsj, tjmz and tjbq. This activity is expected to linger
until 12 23z. Sfc winds out of the east at 10 to 15 kts, then
winds turn to the north at 21 to 29 kft with winds ranging from 30
to 50 kts.

Marine... Marine conditions are forecast to deteriorate this
evening through the rest of the work week with seas forecast to
increase to up to 8 feet, occasionally up to 10 feet. First across
the local outer atlantic and caribbean waters, as well as the
local passages. Then, spreading into coastal waters and mona
passage including portions of the outer caribbean waters later in
the week. Precautionary statements and small craft advisories
will therefore be in effect for most of the local waters starting
this evening and through most of the work week.
