Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
505 AM AST Tue Apr 25 2017
Variably cloudy skies prevailed overnight and early this morning
across the local islands. Passing showers were observed across
the waters as well as eastern Puerto Rico. However, rainfall
accumulations associated with these showers were minimal. Coastal
temperatures were in the upper 70s to low 80s under southeasterly
winds at 10 knots or less.
Ridge aloft will continue to erode as a broad mid to upper level
trough moves across the western Atlantic and over the local islands.
This feature will combine with plenty of low level moisture to
result in showers and thunderstorms across the forecast area
throughout the day. Expect a few passing showers across E PR
during the morning hours with shower and thunder activity
increasing across the forecast area late in the morning and
afternoon. These showers and thunderstorms are expected mainly
east and north of the Cordillera Central. With the heaviest
showers and thunderstorms urban flooding is likely. As the trough
moves away on Wednesday, expect another round of overnight and
early morning showers with thunderstorms possible across E PR.
Wednesday afternoon and into Thursday, a more seasonable weather
pattern is expected to prevail with locally induced showers
across west PR in the afternoon.
Mariners can expect seas up to 6 feet across the regional waters
and local passages. Southeast winds will continue between 15 to
20 knots. There is a high risk of rip currents across north
central and northeast Puerto Rico as well as Culebra.
