NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
445 PM AST THU DEC 18 2014

VARIABLE CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED ACROSS PUERILE RICO...CULEBRA...AND
VIEQUES THIS AFTERNOON. DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS...PASSING SHOWERS
CONTINUED TO AFFECT PARTS OF THE NORTH AND EAST SECTIONS OF PUERTO RICO
UNDER THE PERSISTENT NORTHEAST TRADE WIND FLOW. MOST OF THE SHOWERS
HOWEVER WERE OF LIGHT TO MODERATE INTENSITY. SURFACE WINDS WERE FROM
THE NORTHEAST AT 10 TO 15 MPH WITH HIGHER GUSTS MAINLY OVER THE NORTHERN
COASTAL AREAS. MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM THE LOW TO MID 70S ACROSS
THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS TO THE UPPER 70S TO LOW 80S IN THE LOWER ELEVATIONS.

FOR TONIGHT...PASSING SHOWERS OVER THE ATLANTIC WATERS WILL CONTINUE
TO MOVE WITH THE EAST NORTHEAST WIND FLOW AND REACH PARTS OF THE
ISLANDS FROM TIME TO TIME. A WEAK SURFACE TROUGH IN THE EASTERLY
WIND FLOW WILL MOVE ACROSS THE CARIBBEAN WATERS OVERNIGHT...TO
INCREASE THE CHANCE OF PASSING SHOWERS. IN GENERAL...A FAIR WEATHER
PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE AS HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL CONTINUE
TO BECOME THE DOMINANT FEATURE THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...SEAS UP TO 5 FEET AND WINDS UP TO 17
KNOTS. THERE IS A LOW TO MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS ACROSS THE
NORTH FACING COAST OF PUERILE RICO.
