Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
504 AM AST THU MAY 26 2016
Skies were variably cloudy overnight and a few very light showers
moved over eastern Puerto Rico from the local coastal waters in
the east northeast flow. Winds over land however were quite light.
Temperatures ranged from the upper 70s on the windward coasts to
the mid to lower 60s in the highest interior valleys.
Skies will continue to have areas of clouds pass by with some sun
in the morning. During the afternoon today and tomorrow showers
and possibly a thunderstorm are expected in western Puerto Rico.
Otherwise a mainly stable weather pattern will continue to prevail
across the local islands through the end of the workweek...as a
ridge pattern aloft continues to hold across the forecast area.
The potential for shower and thunderstorm development will
increase during the upcoming weekend as the ridge aloft erodes and
moisture increases across the eastern Caribbean. Some urban and
small stream flooding will be possible then.
Winds around 15 knots and seas up to 5 feet can be expected across
the local waters of Puerto Rico. Tranquil marine conditions will
continue to prevail during the next few days. A moderate risk of
rip currents will continue across much of Puerto Rico...Vieques
and Culebra...except along the western coast.
