Weather Summary for Puerto Rico...CORRECTED
National Weather Service San Juan PR
414 PM AST Sun Dec 17 2017

Skies became variably cloudy as a surge of trade wind moisture and
accompanying showers moved across the region . Some of these
showers continued to affect portions of the north and east
sections of Puerto Rico and the adjacent islands, as well as the
coastal waters. Today`s high temperatures were in the low to mid
80s along coastal areas.Breezy conditions continued with winds
mainly from the northeast at 15 to 20 mph and occasional gusts
between 25 to 30 mph in some areas.

During the rest of the evening and overnight hours, the prevailing
northeasterly trades will continue to bring patches of shallow
moisture and periods of light to moderate rain across the local
waters and portions of the islands. However, the overall weather
conditions will be dominated by a persistent mid to upper level
ridge pattern. This will support mostly fair and breezy weather
conditions, except for the occasional passing trade wind showers
followed by locally induced afternoon showers each day. The
afternoon showers if any should be focused mainly across the
central and southwest sections of Puerto Rico.

Across the regional waters...Seas up to 7 feet will continue across
the Atlantic waters and local passages overnight. Winds will remain
from the east-northeast at 15 to 20 knots. For the beach goers, there
is a high risk of rip currents for the most of the northern facing
beaches of Puerto Rico while a low to moderate risk exists across
the rest of the beaches.
