Synopsis Hurricane maria will pass through the u.S. Virgin
islands Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday, and through puerto
rico Tuesday night through Wednesday night as a major hurricane with
catastrophic winds and rains. Rains will diminish somewhat on
Thursday, but the main band of hurricane maria will pass through
Thursday night and Friday. Over the weekend south winds will
sustain the flow of very moist air over the area with showers and
thunderstorms and flooding likely.

Short term Tonight through Friday
the radiosonde released at san juan showed typical values for a
pre-hurricane environment: increasing moisture, modest instability
and winds that reflect an increasingly strong low level flow
around the cyclone, in this case, northeast at 25 to 35 kt up
through 12 kft. Hurricane maria just passed north of buoy 42060,
110 miles southeast of saint croix. Since maria continues at
300 08 knots or west northwest at 10 mph, it is on track and on
time for impacting saint croix, vieques and puerto rico. Please
see the hurricane local statement for the details on timing and
intensity. Winds and rains will attenuate on Thursday, but the
main band of still major hurricane maria is expected to pass over
the u.S. Virgin islands and puerto rico on Thursday night and
Friday, when copious rains will continue. Please see the flash
flood watch issued by this office for details and impacts--some
quite severe--from the heavy rains to follow maria.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
the tail of maria will continue to pull up abundant tropical
moisture out of the southeast although the moisture in the lowest
layer will be somewhat weaker. A weak trough will add another
burst of moisture. Heavy rains however should begin to diminish
Friday through Monday and urban and small stream flooding should
be confined to daytime and early evening hours and be fairly
localized. On Monday night drier air at mid levels, and patches of
dry air will finally enter puerto rico, but strong heating
promises strong convection over the central interior and
northwestern quadrants of puerto rico. This too could lead to
localized urban and small stream flooding.

Aviation Outer rain bands began affecting the usvi and puerto
rico proper early this morning, and the core of the storm is now
beginning to approach the usvi. Mountain obscurations have begun.

Tropical storm wind gusts may affect tist tisx in early rainbands,
and in jsj by 19 22z tonight, and as far west as jbq and jmz by
10z-12z. Brief MVFR will accompany rain bands. Sustained tropical
storm force winds will arrive at the usvi by 20 00z, at jsj around
06z, and finally to western pr around 20 12z. Sustained hurricane
force winds will arrive approximately 6 hours after those times
listed above. Expect ifr and conditions after hurricane condtions
have begun, but check with authorities for airport closures.

Marine As mentioned above, hurricane maria just passed north
of buoy 42060, 110 miles southeast of saint croix. Since maria
continues at 300 08 knots or west northwest at 10 mph, it is on
track and on time for impacting the waters around saint croix,
vieques and puerto rico. Wave heights there peaked at 31 feet and
sustained winds peaked at 64 knots, due to its distance from the
southwestern eyewall. This continues to be a very dangerous storm.

Latest advisories from the hurricane hunter aircraft reported
maximum sustained winds of 165 mph. The eyewall of hurricane
maria is expected to enter the southeast corner of the forecast
area late this afternoon and exit the northwest corner Thursday
afternoon with sustained winds in excess of 140 knots. Seas of 20
to 30 feet with occasional seas over 40 feet expected with the
passage. There would be no chance of successful passage through
this storm.

Hydrology Main stem rivers are expected to rise beginning
tonight and peak perhaps on Thursday. A flash flood watch is in
effect until 6 pm ast Friday and many rivers could reach major or
record flood stages. Except for localized heavy rains, most
mainstem rivers should be falling on Friday and return to normal
by Sunday or Monday-- again with the exception of local persistent

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.
