Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
449 PM AST Mon May 29 2017

Cloudy skies prevailed across the local islands in the morning and
afternoon hours. Showers continued to affect the eastern half of
Puerto Rico during the morning hours. Numerous showers and
thunderstorms with frequent lightning developed along the
interior, western and northern portions of PR in the afternoon,
leaving up to 3 inches of rain in some areas. Thunderstorms with
heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds also affected the northern
and northwestern coastal waters of PR. Temperatures were in the
mid to upper 80s across the lower elevations and in the upper 70s
to low 80s across the higher elevations. Winds were east southeast
at 10 to 15 mph with gusts near showers.

A tropical wave will continue to exit the region tonight, but
lingering moisture will continue to prevail and due to the
proximity of the upper level trough, will result in additional
showers and thunderstorms. During the night and early morning
hours, the activity is expected mainly across the eastern half of
Puerto Rico, spreading across the western half of Puerto Rico in
the late morning and afternoon hours. The high potential for urban
and small stream flooding will also continue.

Seas up to 5 feet and east winds up to 20 knots are expected
across the local waters and passages. Therefore, small craft
should exercise caution. There is a moderate risk of rip currents
across the north facing beaches as well as some beaches across
Culebra, Vieques and the south coast of Puerto Rico.
