Hydrologic Outlook

Hydrologic Outlook issued April 14 at 11:11AM AST by NWS San Juan PR

ESFSJU An unsettled and wet pattern is expected to prevail through the middle of the workweek across Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Recent satellite imagery shows a robust area of enhanced moisture approaching the region. Additionally, instability aloft will increase as an upper level trough approaches from the northwest. The interaction of these features will favor the development of showers and thunderstorms across the region, starting today and stretching into at least Wednesday. Periods of moderate to locally heavy rainfall is expected, especially for the eastern, northern and interior of Puerto Rico. Additionally, some pulses of showers will move over the Virgin Islands and southern Puerto Rico at times. The risk for urban and small stream flooding, water surges along rivers, and mudslides will also increase, while isolated flash flooding cannot be ruled out. For now, the wettest period appears to be Monday through Wednesday, with conditions improving by Thursday. Usually, the early wet season begins in the northeastern Caribbean by mid-April, extending into the end of May. This year, the climatological guidance (very long-range models) indicate that rainfall should be above normal for Puerto Rico and for the Virgin Islands through this period. While enhanced precipitation would prevent drought from redeveloping, it would also mean that flooding could become more frequent, and residents are encouraged to review their flooding plans.
