Synopsis A tropical wave will move across the area through
Saturday. Heavy showers across pr could cause localized flash
flooding and mudslides in areas of steep terrain. Lingering
moisture on Sunday will aid in the development of showers and
thunderstorms over mainland pr. An upper level low and induced
surface trough are forecast to move over the region between
Tuesday and Wednesday.

Short term Today through Sunday...

a tropical wave and its associated moisture are causing showers and
isolated thunderstorms across the u.S. Virgin islands and eastern
puerto rico this afternoon. This activity will continue to move to
the west and affect other areas of pr. Also, diurnal heating and
local effects will enhance convection over the interior and western
areas of puerto rico later today. Tjua dual pol storm total shows
0.5 to 1.0 inches of rain has fallen across some areas of the metro
area of san juan this morning, if an additional amount of 1 to 2
inches falls, a flood advisory may be required. Showers and
thunderstorms that do develop are expected to move slowly as a
result of light low-level steering flow across the region. The
recent tjsj sounding and vad wind profile show winds speeds of less
than 10 kts today. Therefore due to saturated soils from previous
days rainfall, and expected rainfall today will cause expected urban
and small stream flooding and mudslides in steep terrain today. In
addition, the combination of increased low-level moisture, diurnal
and local effects, as well as light east to southeast winds enhances
the flooding threat across the region. The potential for flooding
will continue through the weekend as lingering moisture from the
tropical wave, and cutoff low are forecast to remain near puerto

Long term Monday through Friday... From prev discussion...

for the beginning of the workweek, high pressure at the low and
mid levels should keep the winds coming out of the east-northeast.

This wind flow will carry groups of showers across the local
area. For Tuesday, an upper-level trough will deepen north of the
islands. A cut-off low will detach from this feature on Wednesday
and will be positioned over hispaniola. At the same time, a
surface- induced trough should move over the islands from the
east. All these factors should result in an unsettled weather
pattern for the mid- part of the workweek. Then, on Tuesday,
although the surface trough will move away into the central
caribbean, the upper-level low should meander just south of
hispaniola, maintaining some instability across puerto rico and
the u.S. Virgin islands. By Friday, a tropical wave will move over
the eastern caribbean. However, at this time, the most
significant rainfall activity is expected to stay south of the
local islands.

Aviation A tropical wave is producing tsra shra between the
leeward and vi terminals, this could cause brief MVFR conds during
the next 12-24 hours. Tempo MVFR expected at tjps tjmz through
this afternoon due to locally induced tsra. Additional shra tsra
is expected to increase from the east with the wave passage and
continue through Saturday. Winds will prevail from the e-ese at 10
to 15 kts with higher gusts in shra tsra.

Marine Seas will continue below 5 feet and east to southeast
trades will prevail at 10-15 knots through the weekend. Showers
and thunderstorms are expected to increase through Saturday across
the regional waters with the passage of a tropical wave. There is
a moderate risk of rip currents for the northern beaches of the

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.
