Synopsis
A weak tropical wave will increase moisture and instability across
the local islands through at least early Sunday morning. A dry air
mass with a dense saharan air layer will limit shower activity and
create hazy skies by Sunday morning into early next week.

Unsettled weather conditions will return by mid-week of the
upcoming week.

Short term Today through Monday...

goes-16 IR shows a shallow patch of moisture moving across the
leeward islands. This moisture is associated with a weak tropical
wave that has moved into the northeast caribbean waters early this
morning, this wave will move across the region through early
Sunday morning. This tropical wave will produce isolated to
scattered showers this morning across the u.S. Virgin islands and
eastern areas of puerto rico. Most of these showers, however, should be
brief and only lead to minor rainfall accumulations. Later this
afternoon the moisture is expected to continue to advance to the
west. The combination of low-level moisture, local effects and
diurnal heating will initiate showers and isolated thunderstorms
across the interior, western and metro areas of puerto rico.

In addition, 00z high-res WRF model develops streamers downwind of
the u.S. Virgin islands and across metro areas of san juan this
afternoon. Streamers that do develop could cause urban and small
stream flooding especially if they develop over san juan metro areas.

Sunday, moisture will linger across the area and induce isolated to
scattered showers across most of the region. Then a dry saharan air
mass is forecast to advance into the u.S. Virgin islands and eastern
puerto rico late in the afternoon. This dense air layer will limit
shower activity across the aformentioned areas late Sunday
afternoon. The saharan air will continue to progress to the west
across other areas of the island by Sunday evening resulting in hazy
skies and limited shower activity late Sunday evening into Monday
night.

Long term Tuesday through Friday...

for Tuesday, the aforementioned saharan air layer is forecast to
exit the region by late Tuesday night into early Wednesday
morning. Therefore, hazy skies with limited shower activity will
persist.

Model guidance are suggesting unsettled weather conditions
associated with a low-pressure system Wednesday through early
Friday morning. At this time, the national hurricane center (nhc)
is monitoring this system, which is located about a thousand
miles east of the windward islands. Environmental conditions
appear conducive for additional development and the NHC is giving
a medium chance of formation in the next 48 hours and a high
chance through the next 5 days. There is plenty of uncertainty
regarding the intensity of this disturbance, but giving the
potential for development into a more organize system, we will
continue monitoring this situation. A more seasonable weather
pattern is forecast to return by Saturday.

Aviation
MainlyVFR conditions are expected to persist through the forecast
period. Vcsh expected across eastern pr, usvi and leeward island
terminals through 24 18z. Shra tsra across metro areas of pr and
western terminals of pr by 24 16z, then over terminals tjbq and
tjmz by 24 18z. Shra tsra could cause brief MVFR conds. Winds will
be out of the east to southeast at 10 to 20 kts with higher gusts
and sea breeze variation starting by 24 14z.

Marine Seas up to 5 feet and winds around 15 knots are
expected across the local waters through much of the forecast
period. If marine guidances are correct, an active tropical wave
will deteriorate the marine weather conditions by mid-week of the
upcoming week.

For the beach goers, there is a moderate risk of rip current for
most of the local beaches of puerto rico and the u.S. Virgin
islands today.
