Synopsis for puerto rico and the uS. Virgin islands waters... Moderate to locally fresh trade winds will persist across most of the regional waters into the weekend, resulting in choppy seas. Tropical storm josephine is still forecast to track well northeast of the region during the weekend. This will result in some rough seas for portions of the offshore atlantic waters, as well as an increase in shower and isolated Thunderstorm activity across the area.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Juan PR 939 PM AST Fri Aug 14 2020

UPDATE. Showers will continue to move across the windward sections overnight and until the arrival of subsidence ahead of Josephine. This area of subsidence will limit shower activity, but the moisture field associated with Josephine will increase the potential of having squally-weather across the islands, especially around noon. However, based on the latest Tropical Cyclone Advisory, Josephine is forecast to pass well off to the north of the islands over the weekend.

AVIATION. In general, VFR conditions will prevail through the forecast period. Quick passing SHRA/-SHRA remains possible across JSJ/IST/JBQ/ISX/NCM/KPK overnight. The external bands of Josephine and local effects will produce SHRA/TSRA across the USVI, as well as along the mountains and the E/W sections of PR between 15/16-23z. Winds are forecast from the E-NE at less than 10 knots, increasing at 10-20 knots after 15/13z.

MARINE.

Mariners can expect choppy seas up to 6 feet due to winds between 15 and 20 knots. Tropical Storm Josephine will deteriorate the Atlantic Offshore waters but will track off to the north of the area. Therefore, a Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Atlantic Offshore waters tomorrow night.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 425 PM AST Fri Aug 14 2020/

SYNOPSIS .

Tropical Storm Josephine will pass far to our north over the weekend. However, some moisture associated with the system will produce shower activity across the region for tomorrow and Sunday. Marine conditions will become choppy as well over the outer Atlantic waters due to the storm. Multiple tropical waves are expected for the next workweek.

SHORT TERM . Rest of Today through Sunday .

Currently a high pressure ridge exists at mid to upper levels over the western Atlantic, with its associated high surface pressure over the same area. Enhanced near-surface pressure gradients associated with the surface high are driving breezy winds across the region today, and more especially tonight over the local waters of up to 20 knots. The ridge aloft is driving subsidence and warmer temperatures aloft, where the 12z sounding recorded -4.5C at 500mb. Given these conditions, thunderstorms have had a hard time developing this afternoon. A patch of moisture has been impacting the area this afternoon, bringing scattered to numerous showers over the USVI, with more activity over southwestern Puerto Rico due to the west-northwesterly wind flow. These showers will continue for the next few hours, then die down over land and continue over the local waters.

Though Tropical Storm Josephine will pass well to our north this weekend, we will still be impacted a bit by some moisture associated with the storm. Before that moisture arrives, one more patch of moisture will pass through overnight, producing scattered showers across the local waters, the USVI, and near the coast of eastern Puerto Rico. After that patch of moisture moves through, the next wave of moisture, this one associated with Josephine, is expected to move at least near our region Saturday during the daytime and into the nighttime. Forecast models are trending towards pushing most of the moisture to our north, yet an increase in shower activity is at least likely for the USVI and the Atlantic waters during this period. Given that most of this moisture is expected to not reach us, and with the ridge still in place, only moderate shower activity and probably no thunderstorms are expected in western Puerto Rico for tomorrow afternoon. Another wave of moisture being pulled up from the south by Josephine is expected for late Sunday, and that will also help to increase showers. However, we will still be under the influence of the ridge, so much of Saturday and Sunday we should see fair weather conditions. When the aforementioned areas of moisture move in, the large-scale ridging should suppress thunderstorm activity and make the showers less impactful.

LONG TERM . Monday through Saturday .

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 407 AM AST Fri Aug 14 2020/

On Monday, moisture associated with Tropical Storm Josephine combined with a relatively weak wave will stream across the area. As such, an increase in shower activity is anticipated across the region, with afternoon showers and thunderstorms, especially in northwestern Puerto Rico. Behind the wave is a large area of disorganized patches of moisture, which are anticipated to affect the area of Tuesday. Moisture is likely to decrease late in the day, however. A typical pattern is likely on the day, with shower activity becoming more inhibited in the evening. This is due to a small area of dry air ahead of another wave.

Late on Tuesday night, a vigorous tropical wave is forecast to make its way into the area. Significantly higher moisture levels are anticipated, and shower activity is likely to be fairly widespread. The wave will linger over the area into Thursday. Once again, a drier air mass is expected to move in ahead of the next wave mid- morning on Thursday through the afternoon. The next wave is forecast to arrive overnight on Thursday night into Friday, and this one is also expected to be fairly vigorous. Another surge of moisture across the area will lead to an increase in showers. Widespread afternoon showers with isolated thunderstorms are anticipated for Friday, with the peak in activity in western and interior Puerto Rico. This will be followed by enhanced passing shower activity during the night.

On Saturday, disorganized patches of moisture will help to sustain shower activity across the area. Late in the day yet another tropical wave is forecast to approach the area. So, on the whole, next week is currently looking to be fairly repetitive.

AVIATION .

SHRA to increase over PR from NE to SW corners. Isold TSRA SW PR. Sct SHRA to cont byd 15/02Z. Some mtn obscurations to dvlp drg the period. Conds improving 15/10-16Z.

MARINE .

Winds will be up to 20 knots across the local waters tonight, so small craft operators should exercise caution. Choppy marine conditions are expected over the outer Atlantic waters for the next few days as Tropical Storm Josephine passes to our north. Seas up to 7 feet are possible at the event peak, which is expected late Saturday. After Josephine passes through, more tranquil marine conditions are expected early next week.
