Synopsis for puerto rico and the uS. Virgin islands waters... The light to moderate southeast to south winds expected tonight will become lighter and from the southwest on Sunday as a surface low develops north of hispaniola. A large northerly swell has arrived in our local atlantic waters and passages and will continue through the weekend creating hazardous marine conditions. In addition showers and isolated Thunderstorms are expected across all local waters through the rest of the weekend. Another northerly swell generated by the surface low is forecast to reach the atlantic waters and passages by the middle of next week.

Synopsis The deep moisture and trough in the upper levels will
maintain cloudy skies across the local area with showers over the
local waters. Sfc low pressure, north of hispaniola will move
north and east slowly for the next few days, causing some clearing
tomorrow.

Short term Today through Tuesday...

the area of shower activity had moved to the east of puerto rico by
1:30 pm ast. Clouds were also thinning over the western interior
leaving a chance for thunderstorms to grow over the area still.

Showers or light rain will continue to affect the u.S. Virgin
islands.

Low pressure at the surface and in the lower levels less
than two hundred miles north of punta cana is now the primary driver
of the moist flow from the south across puerto rico and the u.S.

Virgin islands. The axis of that moisture is presently across
vieques and culebra, and will move eastward to the leeward islands
by Monday as the low moves to about 500 miles north of puerto rico.

During the same periods precipitable water will drop from 1.93 to
around 1.5 inches. As a result available moisture and instability
will decrease and shower activity and cloud cover will decrease.

Because the low will intensify as it moves north, the pressure
gradient over the local area will drop to nearly zero in a col. This
will allow sea breezes to form during the day and keep temperatures
from reaching 90 degrees over the greater metropolitan area due to
the south winds that we have had under cloudy skies at present. The
mex MOS is handling this well and it would explain why it is
forecasting only 82 degrees for a high on Wednesday with much
less moisture after forecasting 86 degrees today. The u.S. Virgin
islands will also see less moisture but it will be delayed about 24
hours, and the more significant drying will be delayed until
Tuesday. A few thunderstorms may still be possible during the next
several days--especially in the interior of puerto rico with more
sunshine on Monday.

Long term The long term guidance continues to suggest that
drier air will filter in on Wednesday and should remain fairly dry
for the rest of the workweek with winds becoming northerly on
Wednesday and Thursday then shifting to an easterly wind on Friday
an for the upcoming weekend. This general pattern should cause
mostly fair weather with isolated shower activity. Temperatures
late this upcoming week are expected to be pleasant in the low 80s
across the lower elevations with also lower dew point
temperatures, at this time the long term guidance suggest dew point
temperatures in the mid 60s across the san juan metro and the
usvi, which is at 5-7 degrees than what we have been observing
these past few days.

Marine Small craft advisory was extended for the local
offshore atlantic waters when taken into consideration the latest
guidance and observations. The models have been under estimating
the northerly swell and the local buoys are reporting seas of 9-11
feet across the nearshore waters to the north and northwest of
pr. Because of these wave heights and the current period of 10-12
seconds, a high surf advisory was issued and it still remains in
effect until 6 am ast Sunday. There is a high risk of rip currents
across the north, northeast and western coasts of pr as well as
many beaches in vieques, culebra, and saint thomas.

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.
