.DISCUSSION...Passing showers continued to affect mostly the
eastern portions of Puerto Rico from mid morning to early
afternoon. Most of these showers have generated nay significant
rainfall accumulations. Another area of light to moderate showers
developed over the central interior of Puerto Rico Mainly affecting
the municipalities of Jayuya and Utuado.

A low pressure system located over the Bahamas will increase moisture
across the Central and Eastern Caribbean. A broad area of high
pressure across the Central Atlantic continues to weaken. A weak
tropical wave located south of Puerto Rico will continue to move
west and away from the region through Saturday.

Models guidance continue to suggests that the weekend could be
more active as moisture is forecast to increase across the local
region. This moisture increase may be heavily influenced by the
development of the disturbance to the north of the Bahamas,
therefore we will continue to monitor the development of this
disturbance and make changes to the forecast package as needed.
