Variably to cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico overnight.
Scattered showers were seen mainly across the northern half of
Puerto Rico. Some of these showers were heavy at times with

Temperatures ranged from the low to mid 60s in the mountains to

A strong surface high pressure ridge over the southeastern United
States will drift slowly eastward to the northern Bahamas through
Friday. This will maintain a moderate northeast to east wind flow across
the local islands at least through Thursday. Winds will diminish
by Friday as the high pressure weakens.
