the local islands today aiding in the development of showers and
thunderstorms along and to the north of cordillera central,

a surface low pressure system located around 300 miles north of
puerto rico early this morning will continue to induce a moist

afternoon activity will be focus mainly across the north and
northeast sections of puerto rico including in the vicinity of san
The surface low is expected to move northeast away from the area by
late Wednesday. As it move away from the area, a high pressure
system is expected to take control of the weather locally. As a
result, drier and stable weather conditions are expected to return

as the surface low just to the north of puerto rico and
hispaniola continues to move further northeastward into the north
central atlantic, a ridge will begin to build across the region

stable weather pattern across the local islands through early in
the weekend. The northeasterly wind flow is expected to produce
seasonable temperatures during this period. An east to east

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.
