Mostly clear skies prevailed overnight and early this morning
across the forecast area with limited shower activity observed
over land areas. Temperatures were in the upper 70s to low 80s
at the lower elevations under light and variable winds.
Available moisture will combine with diurnal heating and local
effects to result in showers and thunderstorms across the forecast
area today. During the early morning hours, a generally fair
weather pattern is expected to prevail with shower and thunder
activity increasing during the late morning and early afternoon
hours. These showers and thunderstorms are expected across
northwest Puerto Rico as well as portions of the San Juan Metro
Area. With the heaviest showers, urban and small stream flooding
is likely. Friday and Saturday a similar weather pattern is
expected with showers in the morning across windward areas
followed by afternoon showers and thunderstorms across west Puerto
Rico, however intensity and coverage will increase as a trough
establishes north of the area.
Mariners can expect seas up to 5 feet across the regional waters
and local passages with easterly winds around 15 knots. There is
a moderate risk of rip currents across most of the local beaches,
increasing to high across the north central Puerto Rico tonight.
