Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
409 PM AST SUN AUG 28 2016
Mostly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico...Culebra and
Vieques this afternoon. The Doppler radar detected scattered to
numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms along and south of
Cordillera Central early this afternoon. Some showers and
thunderstorms also affected the northern sections of Puerto Rico
by mid afternoon. Several Flood Advisories and Special Weather
Statement were issued for municipalities along and south of
Cordillera Central. Temperatures were in the upper 80s and the
winds were very light and variable.
The afternoon shower activity was the result of the combination
of daytime heating and local effects aided by an upper level low
just northeast of the region. For tonight, the upper level low
will aid in the development of isolated to scattered showers
mostly across the Atlantic waters with few of them affecting the
northern and eastern sections of Puerto Rico. For tomorrow
afternoon, the available moisture will combine again with diurnal
heating and local effects to induce the development of showers and
a couple of thunderstorms along Cordillera Central, and interior
sections of Puerto Rico.
Across the coastal waters...seas up to 5 feet and winds around 15
knots are expected.
