Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
415 AM AST Sun Feb 26 2017
Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the region
overnight. A few passing low level clouds and mainly light showers
moved across the coastal waters and but no significant rainfall
was observed over the land areas so far this morning. Early
morning temperatures were nearing the low to mid 70 along the
coastal areas. Winds over land were light and variable to calm.
Periods of passing showers will continue across the coastal waters
and parts of the islands from time to time at least through Monday.
A small surge of moisture in the trade wind flow will move from
east to west across the region today. This will result in an increase
in the chance for shower development across parts of the interior and
west sections of PR during the afternoon. Winds will be from the east
at 10 to 15 mph with breezier conditions expected later this evening
as high pressure builds north of the region and the trade winds increase
over the next few days.
Sea conditions will continue to improve today with seas of 5 feet
or less. However increasing trade winds is expected by tonight
and during the beginning of the work week. Winds up to 20 knots
with occasional higher gusts can be then expected with wind driven
seas increasing to 7 feet offshore tonight. Moderate risk of rip
currents is expected today for most of the north facing beaches.
