6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Synopsis
A mid to upper level trough will amplify over the western
caribbean sea into the weekend. A shear line will continue near
the islands through next week. The islands are forecast to
continue under a southerly wind flow.

Short term
Showers and thunderstorms are possible across the across the u.S.

Virgin islands and the eastern, interior and southern portions of
puerto rico through the overnight hours due to the combination of
surface convergence and diffluence aloft. In addition, a shear
line will aid in the formation of showers and thunderstorms across
the mona passage and atlantic waters of puerto rico. The southerly
wind flow continues to push a moist air mass over the islands.

Today we tied the record high temperature at the luis munoz marin
airport. This tied the old record of 91 fahrenheit set in 1983.

The combination of a weak frontal boundary, an induced surface
trough, a southerly wind flow and good ventilation aloft will
enhance showers and thunderstorm convection on Saturday. This
activity could increase the risk for flooding as well as mudslides
along steep terrains mainly across the u.S. Virgin islands and the
interior and eastern sections of puerto rico.

Long term
A mid to upper level ridge is expected to build across the forecast
area early next week and hold much of the forecast period. As this
feature strengthens mon-tue, available low level moisture is
expected to quickly erode with precipitable water values remaining
below the normal range tue-fri. At lower levels, east to east
southeast winds will prevail across the local isles as a surface
high dominates the central atlantic. Under the aforementioned
pattern, expect mainly fair and stable weather condition much of
the next week with trade wind showers across usvi and E pr as well
as some locally induced afternoon showers across west areas of
puerto rico.

Aviation
Vcsh vcts across the local terminals today with MVFR cigs
possible across puerto rico eastern terminal sites. Sfc winds out
of the S to SW at 10 to 15 kts but fl340 - fl400 winds are out of
the SW to W at 20 to 30 kts. Vcsh vcts should diminish across the
western terminals by 19 00z then continue to the eastern terminals
by 18 03z.

Marine
Although seas and winds are expected below 5 feet and at less than
18 knots, mariners should exercise caution due to the possibility
of shower and thunderstorm development mainly across caribbean
passages and atlantic waters. A northerly swell is forecast to
move across the local waters of the atlantic waters by Saturday.

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.
