.SYNOPSIS FOR PUERTO RICO AND THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS WATERS...
Surface and upper level high pressure will remain over the western
Atlantic through Thursday. This in turn will tighten the local
pressure gradient to maintain fresh to locally strong northeast winds
across the regional waters. Choppy and hazardous wind driven seas
can therefore be expected to persist across the regional waters. A
northerly swell will also arrive across local waters on Tuesday.
