Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
325 PM AST Sun Apr 30 2017
Mostly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico this afternoon.
Showers and thunderstorms affected the eastern, interior and
western sections of Puerto Rico. From one to two inches of rain
were estimated by Doppler radar in some localized areas in
northeast and western Puerto Rico so far this afternoon. Maximum
temperatures ranged from the upper 70s to lower 80s in the
mountains and from the lower to the mid 80s in lower elevations.
Winds were mainly eastward at 10 to 15 mph with higher gusts near
showers and thunderstorms.
Shower and thunderstorm activity will continue across the region
this evening. For Monday a similar weather pattern is forecast,
with showers and a couple of thunderstorms in the morning across
windward areas followed by afternoon showers and thunderstorms
across interior and western sections of Puerto Rico. Intensity
and coverage will increase during the afternoons as an upper level
trough across the region combines with local effects. Due to the
previous days rainfall, any additional showers will result in
urban and small stream flooding.
Mariners can expect seas up to 6 feet across the regional waters
and local passages with easterly winds between 15 and 20 knots.
Therefore, mariners should exercise caution across most of the
regional waters. There is a moderate risk of rip currents across
most of the local beaches, except for the west coastline.
