Synopsis
Unstable weather conditions will persist through at least Thursday
due to the proximity of a mid- to upper-level trough. This feature
along with plenty of moisture will result in rounds of showers
and thunderstorm each day, especially during the afternoon hours.

A slight improvement is expected Friday and Saturday. Once again,
a trof pattern combined with abundant tropical moisture will
enhance the potential for showers and thunderstorms across the
islands by the next week.

Short term Today through Friday...

a light to moderate east to southeast wind flow will prevail across
the region supported by a surface ridge extending southwestward over
the central atlantic. At mid to upper levels, a southeastward
propagating trough will continue to sink into the northeastern
caribbean. As this feature approaches the forecast area, favorable
conditions aloft will persist under a divergence pattern and
increased instability. These conditions along with plenty tropical
moisture--model precipitable water estimates between 1.5 and 2.0
inches--will result in enhanced shower and thunderstorm development
with peak intensity and areal coverage expected on Thursday.

Overnight and morning showers are expected to stream over the waters
into portions of eastern and southern puerto rico, as well as over
the u.S. Virgin islands. As the day progresses, the bulk of this
activity is forecast to shift and cluster along the interior and
western sectors of puerto rico. Showers and isolated thunderstorm
are also expected to move over the san juan metropolitan area and
the u.S. Virgin islands. Rainfall accumulations are forecast to peak
around an inch and a half with isolated higher amounts today, but
the potential for widespread activity will result in rainfall totals
up to 2 inches with isolated higher amounts on Thursday. As a
result, there is an increasing potential for urban and small streams
flooding, as well as mudslides in areas near steep terrain,
particularly on Thursday.

A slight improvement is expected on Friday, but afternoon convection
will once again affect the northwestern quadrant of puerto rico.

Long term Saturday through Wednesday...

although weather conditions should improve somewhat on Saturday,
early morning showers across eastern pr and the us virgin islands
followed by afternoon convection along and west of the cordillera
central should not be ruled out.

Global models continues to suggest an amplifying trough
interacting with deep tropical moisture early next week, Sunday
through Tuesday. Precipitable water values could range between 1.8
and 2.2 inches through this period. GFS chiclets look reasonable
consistent during the last few runs. Therefore, if these
solutions are correct, unsettle weather conditions could be
expected the first part of the upcoming week. Confidence is
increasing somewhat but continues low-moderate, because still
far in the forecast time. Please continue to monitor the latest
forecast updates during the next several days.

Model guidances continues to suggest a tropical wave moving across
the local caribbean waters by Wednesday.

Aviation MainlyVFR conds expected through 22 16z. However, brief
shra will result in vcsh across the leeward and usvi terminals.

Enhanced afternoon convection will result in vcsh vcts with bkn at
fl030-050 at tjmz tjbq between 22 17z and 23 02z, where MVFR
conditions are possible. Light and variable winds will continue,
turning from the ese at 10-15 kt with sea breeze variations and
occasional gusts after 22 14z.

Marine Across the regional waters and local passages, seas are
expected to remain at 5 feet or less. East to southeast winds
will continue between 10 to 15 knots. There is a low risk of rip
currents, except for the north-central beaches of puerto rico
where the risk is moderate.

Mariners can expect isolated thunderstorms each afternoon mainly
across the western coastal waters of puerto rico. Shower and
thunderstorm activity could increase across the region between
Sunday and Tuesday of the upcoming week.

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.
