Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
454 AM AST WED MAY 25 2016

Skies were partly cloudy over Puerto Rico overnight. Scattered showers
were moving onshore with amounts of up to one half inch on the
east and southeast quarter according to NWS doppler radar.
Temperatures ranged from around 80 degrees on the windward coasts
to the mid 60s inland. Winds were less than 7 mph with some land
breeze influence.

An approaching drier layer of air at lower levels and the
prevailing upper level ridge over the leeward islands will
minimize most of the shower activity that might have occurred over
the area today. With wind flow easterly with just a hint of
northerly component a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm or
two will form mainly over the west and southwest parts of the
island today. Much of the greater San Juan metropolitan area will
remain dry however. Sea breezes will form on the north coast by
mid morning but some temperatures could still reach the lower 90s
just inland. Temperatures around 90 degrees are possible on the
south coast. Highs will range to as little as the mid 70s in the
highest elevations. The long range models are suggesting
more showers beginning over the weekend and continuing through
Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

Winds of 10 to 20 knots and seas up to 5 feet can be expected
across the local waters of Puerto Rico today. Mariners will need
to exercise caution in some areas of the near shore waters to the
north and south. A moderate risk of rip currents will continue
across much of Puerto Rico...Vieques and Culebra...except along
the western coast.
