Synopsis for puerto rico and the uS. Virgin islands waters... Based on the latest advisory from the national hurricane center tropical storm harvey was located near lat 13.4n...lon 62.9w. Harvey is forecast to move westward across the caribbean sea and pass well south of the forecast area overnight through Saturday morning. However, this will result in hazardous seas mainly across the caribbean waters and local passages. An area of low pressure east of the leeward islands is also expected to reach the forecast area by early next week. As a result, winds and seas are forecast to increase across the offshore atlantic waters late Sunday through Monday.

Update
Was a very dry and stable afternoon with minimal shower activity
across the local islands and surrounding waters. However, as
tropical storm harvey continues to moves westward across the
southern caribbean tonight and tomorrow morning, the moisture in
the northern periphery will increase the shower and thunderstorm
activity across the region. In facts, latest radar observations
indicated isolated to scattered showers moving across the u.S.

Virgin islands and the surrounding waters this evening. This
activity will continue to increase overnight and early Saturday
morning, but not widespread precipitation is expected. The center
of tropical storm harvey is forecast to pass well south of the
islands overnight through Saturday morning
this moisture in combination with daytime heating and local
effects will increase the development of showers and
thunderstorms across the region tomorrow afternoon. A high
moisture content of the local atmosphere will continue Sunday and
Monday, as the area of low pressure invest 92l... Located to the east
northeast of the northern leeward islands moves to the north but
close to puerto rico. Thus a moist and unstable weather pattern
will continue across the region into early next week.

Aviation MostlyVFR conditions expected across the local flying
area overnight with only vcsh across the leewards and usvi taf
sites. Winds will remain at 10 to 15kt overnight with shra
increasing after around the usvi and leeward islands. Winds will
increase after 19 12z t 15 to 20kt with higher gusts.

Marine Small craft advisory remain in effect through Monday
morning due to increasingly hazardous coastal winds and seas.

Tropical storm hervey will pass well to our south, but the winds
will increase across the local offshore caribbean waters tomorrow
and seas could increase to 9 feet and occasionally up to 10 feet.

Prev discussion issued 550 pm ast Fri aug 18 2017
synopsis... Fair weather skies prevailed across the region today as
drier air continued to spread across the region today. Only a few
isolated showers were so far noted over the coastal waters with no
significant accumulations expected to affect the islands the rest
of today. The moderate to strong east to northeast prevailing winds
continued to push most of the clouds quickly to the west southwest
and therefore limited significant development. Based on the latest
advisory from the national hurricane center at 500 pm ast... Tropical
storm harvey was located near lat 13.4n... Lon 62.9w... Is forecast
to move westward across the caribbean sea and pass well south of the
forecast area tonight through Saturday.

Short term... Rest of today through Sunday...

moisture will continue to erode with precipitable water expected
to drop to less than 1.50 inches by early Saturday, as drier air
will filter in from the northeast and a mid to upper level ridge
will build across the region from the northeast. In addition,
aerosol products and model guidance all suggests the presence of
saharan dust particulates across the region. Therefore, fairly dry
and sable conditions should prevail through Saturday morning.

By Saturday afternoon, expect increasing cloudiness and moisture
once again due to peripheral moisture from harvey propagating
northwards across the region. The center of tropical storm harvey
is forecast to move well south of the islands and across the
caribbean waters overnight through Saturday. Although no direct
impact of harvey is anticipated across the region, a gradual
increase in moisture is likely by Saturday afternoon. As a result,
shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to increase during
the afternoon hours.

Increasing moisture and instability aloft is expected to continue
on Sunday, as an area of low pressure invest 92l... Located east
of northern leeward islands is forecast to move just northeast of
the region. Based on the latest information of the national hurricane
center, this system has a 60 percent chance of formation in the next
48 hours and should continue to move northeast of the islands as a
tropical wave. Model guidance all suggest a moist and unstable weather
pattern across the region into early next with good potential for early
morning and afternoon convection across the islands. Some of this activity
may produce periods of locally heavy rainfall in isolated areas.

Long term... Monday through Saturday... Although by Monday, the axis
of the tropical wave 92l should be west and northwest of the region,
expected an elongated plume of moisture to be lifted across the region
in the prevailing east to southeast wind flow. Therefore, the potential
for showers and thunderstorms across the region will continue at least
through the middle of next week. A gradual drying trend and stable conditions
is expected by Thursday and into the weekend.

Aviation...VFR conds expected through the forecast period. Winds
will continue from the east to ene at about 15kt through the
afternoon. Slight chance of shra at tjmz after 18 18z could cause
vcsh but it should be brief. Winds to remain at 10 to 15kt overnight
with shra increasing after 19 00z around the usvi.

Marine... Small craft advisory in effect through Monday morning
due to increasingly hazardous coastal winds and seas. Tropical
storm hervey will pass well to our south, but the winds will increase
across the local offshore caribbean waters on Saturday and seas could
increase to 9 feet and occasionally up to 10 feet.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

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.
