National Weather Service San Juan PR
500 PM AST Sun Jul 23 2017

Mostly sunny skies to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the
islands today. Except across the western half of Puerto Rico were
cloudy skies were observed due to thunderstorms developing during
the afternoon hours. The doppler radar estimated between one to
two inches of rain with the heaviest showers. High temperatures
ranged from the mid 80s to low 90s across the lower elevations to
the high 70s across the higher elevations. Winds prevailed from
the east between 10 to 15 mph with sea breeze variations.

For tonight, a few trade wind showers could briefly affect the
islands and eastern portions of Puerto Rico. Drier and hazy
conditions are expected to continue through at least Monday night
as a drier air mass with Saharan dust continues to filter across
the forecast area. Diurnally induced afternoon showers are
expected mainly across western Puerto Rico. Better moisture
arrives on Tuesday to result in scattered showers and
thunderstorms across portions of the islands.

Across the regional waters...seas up to 5 feet and easterly winds
up to 15 knots are expected overnight. However, winds up to 20
knots are expected across the Anegada Passage and the Caribbean
waters and small crafts should exercise caution. A moderate risk
of rip currents continues across the north and south coast of
Puerto Rico, including Culebra and Vieques.
