synopsis... Upper level ridge will continue to dominates the local
region through the weekend. A tutt low will dig south across the
northeast caribbean early next week.
Short term... Thursday through Sunday... Very dry, hazy and hot
conditions prevailed across puerto rico and the u.S.Virgin islands
this afternoon. A very dry air mass has moved across the region,
limiting any shower development across the area. 19 12z tjsj
sounding showed precipitable water of only 1.35 inches, and local
models indicated it could get even drier tonight and tomorrow.
Therefore, no shower activity is expected. In addition, a saharan
air layer has moved across the area since late yesterday night,
which has produced very hazy skies across the local islands. No
changes in this weather pattern in expected through Sunday.
Long term... Monday through Thursday... Relative dry weather
conditions are expected to continue Monday as upper level ridge
maintains control of the weather locally. However, as upper level
trough dig south across the area, better chances for showers are
expected from Tuesday through the rest of the work week.
Aviation...VFR conds mainly expected but haze will occasionally|
cause MVFR visibility due to its high concentration of saharan dust.
This dust will improve slightly tonight, which should cause
prevailingVFR conds across all of the local terminals. Easterly
winds expected for the rest of today at 10-15kt with gusts 20-25kt.
Winds and haze improving slightly after 20 00z, continued easterly
but at around 10kt. Fair weather expected for the next 24 hours.
Marine... Seas up to 7 feet and winds up to 20 knots are expected
across the local waters through at least Friday. Small craft
advisories continue in effect for most coastal waters.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
