Update Latest satellite images this evening depicted an area
of relatively drier air moving across the u.S. Virgin islands and
puerto rico from the east. This area of relatively drier air will
continue to encompass the region tonight and Tuesday. As a
result, only light passing showers are expected to affect the
local islands and surrounding waters tonight and early Monday.

Surface analysis from tafb indicated a weak tropical wave just
across the eastern caribbean this afternoon. Not significant
convection is associated with this wave. However, for Tuesday
afternoon, the limited moisture provided by the wave in
combination with daytime heating and local effects will produce
showers and a couple of thunderstorms mainly across the western
interior and west sections of puerto rico. This activity is
expected to diminish rapidly after sunset. Not significant shower
activity is expected across the usvi.

Aviation Mostly skc withVFR conds expected durg prd. L lvl
wnd e-se at 10 kts overnight increasing again to 10-15 knots
after 22 13z. Shra isold tsra will remain mainly ovr ctrl and w
interior sections of pr after 22 16z.

Marine Mariners can expect seas up to 6 feet and winds between
10 to 15 knots. Mariners are urged to exercise caution mostly across
the atlantic waters. Seas will continue to improve through the
work week with seas at 5 feet or less.

Prev discussion issued 534 pm ast Mon aug 21 2017
synopsis... A fairly dry air mass moved across the region today with
limited or no shower activity observed across most of the islands.A
few afternoon showers were noted across the interior sections of
pr but elsewhere mostly sunny skies prevailed. High pressure ridge
across the region will maintain fairly dry and stable conditions
overnight through early Tuesday. Ridge aloft will however erode by
late Tuesday through Wednesday therefore increasing the
instability aloft. Ridge will again build aloft and north of the
region by Thursday and Friday.

Short term... Rest of today through Wednesday... An area of low level
moisture in the prevailing east to northeast wind flow is expected
to affect the region by early Tuesday. This will increase the chance
for early morning showers followed by locally and diurnally induced
afternoon showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms. The activity
should be mainly over the interior and west sections of pr. On Wednesday
a weak tropical is forecast to move across the region. This added moisture
along with the increasing instability aloft will support a better chance
for enhanced afternoon convection across portions of the coastal waters
and parts of the islands especially during the afternoon hours.

Long term... Thursday through Tuesday... The previously mentioned tropical
wave is forecast to move across the region Wednesday through Thursday,
increasing the chance for showers and thunderstorms. A drier airmass
is expected late Thursday through Friday, however locally and diurnally
induced showers and isolated afternoon thunderstorms will remain possible
each day mainly over the west and interior sections of pr. Model guidance
also suggest the presence of saharan dust across the region through
most of the period, with the highest concentration expected on Friday.

Late Saturday through Sunday a surface trough is forecast to arrive,followed
by drier conditions on Monday. Another tropical wave is so far forecast
to approach the region by Tuesday but so far no significant development
is expected with any of these features at this time based on model guidance
and the present and expected weather pattern.

Aviation... Shra isold tsra will remain mainly ovr ctrl and w
interior sections of pr til 20 22z. Elsewhere mostly skc withVFR
conds durg prd. L lvl wnd e-se 15-20 kts blo fl200. Sfc wnds E to
ese winds at 10-15 knots.

Marine... The small craft advisory in the atlantic offshore waters
continues in effect until 2 pm ast. Then mariners can expect seas
up to 6 feet and winds between 15 to 20 knots. Seas are forecast
to improve through the work week with seas at 5 feet or less.

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.
