NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
518 AM AST THU JUL 31 2014

ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS WERE OBSERVED ACROSS THE USVI AND
SURROUNDING WATERS DURING THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. HOWEVER...RAINFALL
ACCUMULATIONS BY 5 AM WERE JUST A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH OF RAIN.
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WITH FREQUENT LIGHTNING WAS DETECTED OVER THE
ATLANTIC OFFSHORE WATERS. TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE UPPER 7OS TO
LOWER 80S AND THE WIND WAS LIGHT AND VARIABLE.

FOR TODAY...A SURFACE TROUGH WILL MOVE ACROSS THE LOCAL
REGION...BRINGING WITH IT AN INCREASE IN SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY OVER THE LOCAL REGION.

AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED ABOUT 850 MILES OR SO EAST OF THE
SOUTHERN WINDWARD ISLANDS...STILL HAS THE POTENTIAL TO FURTHER
DEVELOP INTO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS REMAIN MARGINALLY CONDUCIVE AND THIS
SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK WEST NORTHWESTWARD NEAR 15 MPH DURING
THE NEXT FEW DAYS PASSING NEAR THE FORECAST AREA LATE SATURDAY OR
EARLY SUNDAY. INCREASING CLOUDINESS WITH SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
CAN BE EXPECTED LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING AS THIS
SYSTEM APPROACHES OR MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHEASTERN CARIBBEAN.

MARINE CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN TRANQUIL UNTIL SATURDAY WITH WINDS AND
SEAS INCREASING ON SATURDAY WITH THE PASSAGE OF THE LOW PRESSURE
AREA.
