Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
507 PM AST Tue Aug 22 2017

Skies were variably cloudy today. After a few early morning
showers on the northeast coast and slopes, hazy sun was seen over
most of the islands. During the afternoon showers and
thunderstorms developed over the interior portions of Puerto Rico
from Canovanas to Cayey to Cidra and from Cayey and Villalba to
Rincon and Hormigueros. The highest rainfalls observed were three
inches in parts of Maricao and eastern Villalba. Around two and
one half inches fell in eastern Anasco municipality. Temperatures
reached the lower 90s in a number of interior locations including
Jayuya, Bayamon, and Camp Santiago. Most stations went into the
mid to upper 80s before afternoon thunderstorms cooled them down.
Winds were easterly 5 to 15 mph in the interior, but on the coast
sea breezes boosted winds to 12 to 18 mph with higher gusts.

Tonight showers will taper off early in the evening and skies will
clear considerably. Temperatures will range from around 80 degrees
on the windward coasts to the mid 60s in the higher mountain
valleys. Isolated showers are possible in eastern Puerto Rico.
Winds will become mostly light land breezes, but a few coastal
locations will have 5 to 10 mph in easterly flow. It will be a
little drier Wednesday, but a trough will bring an increased
chance of showers late Wednesday into Thursday.

Mariners can expect seas between 3 to 5 feet with occasional seas
up to 6 feet and winds of 10 to 15 knots. There is a moderate rip
current risk across the northern beaches in Puerto Rico. There is
also a moderate risk of rip currents across some beaches in
Vieques.
