Synopsis An active tropical wave interacting with an upper
level trough will result in scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms across the region during the next few days. Unstable
weather conditions are expected to continue through at least
Friday. A mid to upper level ridge will build from the northeast
during the weekend, promoting fair weather conditions through
early next week.

Short term Today through Thursday...

a flash flood watch is in effect through at least Thursday
afternoon for puerto rico and the u.S. Virgin islands. Scattered
convection across the usvi and eastern pr left between 1-2 inches
of rain today. Minor urban flooding was reported today over
portions of eastern pr. An area of strong thunderstorms persisted
over the offshore caribbean waters just to the south and east of
st. Croix, some of this activity is expected to affect st. Croix
through the evening hours. Breezy conditions will continue with
winds ranging between 15-25 mph, with the higher winds remaining
across the offshore waters.

As the wave axis continues to approach the region from the east
and cross the islands on Wednesday... Additional showers and
thunderstorms are expected to increase overnight into Wednesday
morning across the usvi and the eastern portions of pr. Based on
the latest guidance, the heaviest shower activity is expected
between early Wednesday morning through Wednesday evening across
the islands. Rainfall accumulations in general should range
between 1-4 inches with isolated higher amounts through the short
term period.

Long term Friday through Tuesday... (issued at 538 am ast tue
nov 13 2018)
the tropical wave is expected to exit the region by
Friday as high pressure ridge will build north and east of the
region while increasing the east to northeast trade winds.

Although a gradual drying trend is expected by Friday and into the
weekend, expect a surge of moisture in the brisk easterly trade
winds to move across the region and bring periods of cloudiness
and periods of quick passing trade winds showers to the islands
and coastal waters. Afternoon convection each day will be focused
mainly over parts of the interior and downstream of EL yunque
rainforest around the san juan metro, as well as on the west end
and downwind of the u.S.V.I. By then most of the activity should
be in the form of streamers.

Over the weekend and through the early part of the following week,
the mid to upper level ridge is forecast to build across the region
resulting in continued erosion of low level moisture and the suppressing
of widespread afternoon convective development. The atlantic surface
high pressure ridge is to also build north of the region and tighten
the local pressure gradient. This will lead to increasing easterly
trade winds through early next week resulting in breezy conditions.

Showers and thunderstorm development if any, should be then limited
to the overnight and early morning hours, followed by the more typical
afternoon convection each day.

Aviation Quick passing shra isold tsra will affect the local
terminal sites through 14 03z. Mvrf conds are occurring as a
result of +shra tsra these are expected to persist through the
next TAF issuances. Llvl winds are out of the east to northeast
ranging from 15 to 25 kts below fl150, with higher gusts when
shra tsra pass by.

Marine Hazardous seas are expected through the weekend across
most of the regional waters. Seas will range overall between 6-8
feet across the atlantic and caribbean waters as well across the
anegada passage. Winds up to 25 knots are possible with the
passage of an active tropical wave through at least Wednesday.

Thunderstorms are expected to increase overnight through late
Wednesday night across the regional waters, this will result in
periods of frequent lightning as well as gusty winds and locally
higher seas.

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.
