AMZ700 408 Am Ast Fri Dec 6 2019
Synopsis for puerto rico and the uS. Virgin islands waters... Moderate east southeast winds are expected to become more easterly today and persist through the weekend. This will create a light to moderate chop across portions of the local waters and passages. Passing showers are expected to continue over the local waters during the rest of the early morning. Another northerly swell is forecast to move across the atlantic and caribbean passages late Sunday into Monday. This along with increasing east to northeast winds will create choppy and hazardous seas.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service San Juan PR 415 AM AST Fri Dec 6 2019

SYNOPSIS. A gradual drying trend is expected to continue today and through the weekend as a mid to upper level ridge will strengthen and hold across the region. This in turn will increase the trade wind cap inversion and limit shower and thunderstorm development across the forecast area. However, locally and diurnally induced convection is expected to develop during the afternoons, but due to modest instability and shallow moisture showers are expected to be short- lived. Increasing east to northeast trade winds is expected over the next several days as the surface high pressure ridge will build and spread across the Atlantic north and east of the region.

SHORT TERM. Today through Sunday . A mid-level ridge is expected to hold over the area through the short-term forecast period. As a result of this feature and dry air at the mid levels, the trade wind cap will strengthen. Therefore, thunderstorm formation is not favored across the area. Winds will remain out of the east to east-northeast and, under this flow however, patches of moisture at the low levels will continue to move across the region. For each day, passing showers will move across portions of eastern Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands during the overnight and morning hours. Then, in the afternoon, due to the available moisture, diurnal heating and local effects, showers are expected to develop across the interior and western Puerto Rico.

In terms of temperatures, a more easterly to east-northeast wind flow means that temperature will be slightly cooler over the area than what has been observed during the previous days. Normal highs for this of year are between 84 to 86 degrees.

LONG TERM. Monday through Saturday .

Recent model guidance continued to suggest a better chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms by Monday and possibly on Tuesday, as the east to northeast trade winds will increase low level moisture convergence across the forecast area. In addition, the mid to upper level ridge is forecast to slightly erode as a polar trough moves across the west Atlantic and north of the region. The breaking down of the upper ridge will weaken the trade wind cap inversion and support better chance for afternoon shower development across the islands. Most of the moisture however will be advective and brought in from old frontal remnants north of the region. Therefore no significant or widespread rainfall accumulations are anticipated over land areas at this time.

During the latter part of the period through Friday, an upper level ridge is again forecast to build over the region. At the same time the local pressure gradient will tighten and consequently winds will increase and become more northeasterly due strong surface high pressure ridge north of the region, and a weak induced surface trough forecast to develop northeast of the area over the tropical Atlantic. This will also promote more frequent morning passing showers which should affect the northern and eastern half of Puerto Rico, as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands. In addition late Friday through Saturday, weak perturbation in the prevailing trades will bring an increase in low level moisture and therefore increase the chance for shower development during the early morning and afternoon hours.

AVIATION. VFR conditions are expected across all terminals. Passing showers are expected across the area through 06/16Z. After 06/18Z, SHRA could briefly reduce visibility to MVFR across TJMZ/TJBQ. Winds will be out of the ENE at 5 to 15 knots.

MARINE. Moderate easterly winds are expected to persist through the weekend. This will create a light to moderate chop across portions of the local waters and passages through today.Another northerly swell is forecast to move across the Atlantic and Caribbean Passages late Sunday into Monday. This along with increasing east to northeast winds will create choppy and hazardous seas. In the meantime, local seas will be up to 5 feet for the next few days with easterly winds up to 15 knots. There is a low or moderate risk of rip currents across the local beaches.
