This will result in choppy conditions particularly across the atlantic waters and the local passages during the next few days.

Synopsis A generally stable weather pattern to continue through
the end of the week under ridge pattern. However, patches of low
level moisture will assure passing showers later today through
this evening.

Short term Today through Thursday...

fair weather conditions with significantly limited shower activity
will prevail across the forecast area through mid morning. An
area low level moisture now locate just east of the lesser
antilles will enter the anegada passage early this morning and
then over the local islands late this morning. Most of these
showers are fast pace moving and no significant rainfall
accumulations are expected. These showers could generate a few
gusty winds as they pass by. After this fair weather conditions
will continue with significantly limited shower activity across
the forecast area this evening. This is the result of drier air
moving across the region and the effects of a surface to mid-
level ridge of high pressure located over the north central
atlantic. The occasional patch of low- level moisture is expected
once again Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. If any convection
occurs, especially in the afternoon, it will be short- lived due
to unfavorable environmental conditions.

Long term Friday through Tuesday...

on Friday although it will remain relatively stable, moisture
content across the region will begins to increase. After Saturday
the forecast will depend how close the frontal boundary will be
to our local forecast area. On the latest GFS model suggest the
highest amount of moisture will stay over the atlantic ocean but
enough moisture will reach the local area to increase the chances
of showers from Sunday through Tuesday.

Aviation Vfr conditions are expected to prevail across the
forecast area through 21 06z. As a band of moisture moves westward
across the region, expect vcsh first at tkpk tncm around 20 08z,
then tjsj at around 20 16z, tjps at around 20 22z, and tjbq at
around 20 22z. Afternoon convection will also bring vcsh to
tjmz tjbq between 20 16z and 20 22z. Winds will continue to prevail
from the east to northeast at 10 to 15 kt--highest along the coasts
with sea breeze influences and near showers and thunderstorms.

Marine Small craft operators should exercise caution as
combined seas are forecast to be between 4 to 6 feet across local
atlantic waters, anegada passage and the off shore caribbean
waters. Easterlies winds throught at least mid week on the range
of between 10 to 20 knots. There is a high risk of rip currents
across many of the local northern exposed beaches today.

A a generally stable weather pattern to continue through
the end of the week under ridge pattern. However, patches of low
level moisture will assure passing showers particularly Tuesday
night into Wednesday morning. Northerly swell will reach the local
atlantic waters on Saturday night and peak on Sunday morning.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
