Synopsis Afternoon heating produced a few thunderstorms with
heavy rain in western puerto rico. Moisture will increase later
tonight to spread showers across the area from the east northeast
early Tuesday morning and during the day. On Wednesday a tropical
wave will cross through to increase the coverage and amount of
rain. Scattered showers typical for the time of year will continue
through early next week as areas of moisture move through, from
the east southeast.

Short term Tonight through Thursday
high pressure at the surface just southeast of the azores will
shift to within 1500 miles northeast of the area to continue the
easterly trade winds across the area. A tropical wave will move
through the area Wednesday morning to exit to the west on
Wednesday night. Local flow will then become east southeast.

Tonight, moisture increases from the east northeast having
wrapped around high pressure north northeast of the area at 700 mb
and from the east at lower levels. The tropical wave on Wednesday will
enhance this interaction with better showers and thunderstorms in
the area. Increase shower activity will begin later tonight and
then continue in the southeast flow through Thursday. A weak
trough will extend eastward across the area from a tutt to our
northeast, but divergence aloft is limited to Tuesday evening and
Wednesday afternoon and will have a limited effect. Thunderstorms
that do develop Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons will likely
produce areas urban and small stream flooding in portions of
western and northwestern puerto rico from heavy rain. Thursday
will have showers and thunderstorms also in the same areas but
flooding will be more localized.

Long term Friday through Monday
after a dry slot on Thursday night another tropical wave moves
across the area on Friday, then alternating bands of moist and
drier air move through as disturbances from the east travel
through. The tutt low will be northeast of the area on Friday with
an upper level trough hanging over or just east of the lesser
antilles off of the tutt. That trough will break off and travel
through the caribbean south of the area Sunday and Sunday night,
but will have little effect until Monday when a weak southerly jet
crosses through and winds at 700 mb increase to 30 knots
according to the GFS solution. No significant features are
expected tonight through early next week in the local area.

Aviation Vfr conds expected through 25 16z. Saharan dust is
present so there is haze but visibilities will be p6sm. Winds
will continue to be from the east to ese for the rest of today
with sea breeze variations at about 15kt with occasional gusts.

Vcsh possible at tjmz between 24 18z and 24 22z. Winds will
lighten up after 24 23z to about 10kt with mostly dry conditions.

Some shra tsra possible around tjmz tomorrow after 25 16z.

Marine Winds are keeping precautionary statements in the the
local waters as seas remain 5 feet or less. At this time small
craft advisories are not expected through the first of august.

Rip currents will remain at low to moderate risk. Thunderstorms
may become strong over the local waters during the wave passages
Wednesday and Friday to generate locally higher seas and gusty
winds.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
