554 PM AST Mon Oct 24 2016
Showers and isolated thunderstorm activity affected parts of the
central and southwest sections during the afternoon producing
periods of locally heavy rainfall. Some of the heavy rains lead
to minor urban and small stream flooding as well as quick rises in
rivers and streams. By late afternoon most of the thunderstorm
activity had diminished or moved off shore leaving only light to
moderate rains in some areas. Afternoon high temperatures were in
mid to upper 80s across coastal areas and the wind was mostly
light and variable except for local sea breeze variations.
Surface trough and moisture will linger across the region during
the next several days with prevailing winds mainly from the northeast.
Therefore, expect periods of early morning showers focused mainly
across the northeastern slopes of eastern Puerto Rico. This will
be followed by afternoon convection over parts of the central mountain
range and southwest Puerto Rico. Some of the afternoon showers and
thunderstorms may lead to periods of locally heavy rainfall with
minor urban and small stream flooding. Highs will range from the
mid to high 80s along the coastal areas. Winds will be northeast 5
to 15 mph over land except for local sea breeze variations.
Tranquil marine conditions will continue to prevail with seas up
to 4 feet and winds 10 knots or less except in the passages where
