Synopsis: Good morning. This forecast is for ARC Europe and ARC USA Leg 1A, BVI to Bermuda.
A ridge of high pressure extending from 30N/55W SW'ward to Puerto Rico will slowly shift NE'ward through the 08th.
A cold front extends from east of Cape Hatteras S-SW'ward through the Central Bahamas and W'rn Cuba will weaken as it moves E'ward to extend from Bermuda to the S'rn Bahamas and SW'ward through E'rn Cuba by evening of the 08th.
Conclusion: Trade winds across Zone A will tend to slowly weaken over the next couple of days as the ridging here weakens. Winds will generally tend highest along/near the N'rn coast of Puerto Rico, in particular during the late afternoon/evening.
Zone B will experience stronger S-SE winds that will freshen tonight ahead of the approaching front. As the front weakens, so too will the S-SE winds through the 08th. There will be an increasing threat of squalls tonight into and through tomorrow and continuing into the 08th. These will be most numerous across the n'rn and W'rn portions of the zone.
