Removed the tropical storm warning from the offshore atlantic
waters northwest of puerto rico.

Discussion... Hurricane maria continues to move northwest away
from puerto rico, but the southerly moisture flow on the southeast
side of maria lingers. The outer bands of maria extend over 400
miles to the southeast of the center. This southerly moisture flow
will unfortunately remain through the weekend which will increase
rain chances and maintain breezy conditions across puerto rico
and the us virgin islands.

Any rain that puerto rico receives, which is hard to detect with
the tjua radar down, will aggravate the ongoing record flooding
on many of the rivers. Heavy rainfall and standing water is
continuing in many locations away from rivers which presents its
own difficulties. Mudslides have occurred and will likely continue
with any additional heavy rainfall. Thus, will keep the flash
flood watch up across all of puerto rico and the us virgin

Heat index values will be in the mid to upper 90s today and
tomorrow but will push 100 or more by the weekend. This will make
recovery efforts difficult and overall living unpleasant as
electricity remains out across the island.

Easterly trade winds will not return until the middle of next


hurricane maria continues to move away from the region with wind
speeds and gust beginning to subside as we move through the taf
period. Lingering moisture particularly on the west side of puerto
rico with MVFR conditions in those regions. Usvi have begun to see
some drier air and conditions should improve for these regions with
winds gusting 20-25kts. Moisture from maria will allow vicinity
showers and storms to be possible across the us virgin islands. Amd
not sked remains for all terminals, continue to check with
authorities for airport closures.


hurricane maria will continue moving away from the local
waters allowing the occasional tropical storm force winds to
subside in the the waters northwest of puerto rico. Elsewhere a
small craft advisory is in effect with south winds of 20 to 30
knots slowly lessening late this evening. More moderate south-
southeast flow is expected through the weekend with seas
continuing to subside.

Showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain, locally higher winds
and waves, and reduced visibilities will be possible in the outer
bands of maria through the weekend.

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
