Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
442 AM AST Tue Jan 16 2018

Cloudiness with showers were noted across the local coastal
waters and the eastern half of Puerto Rico overnight. A patch of
low level moisture embedded in the trade winds was affecting the
region early this morning. Isolated to scattered showers
affected the eastern third of Puerto Rico. Overnight temperatures
ranged from the low to mid 70s across the lower elevations and
from the low to mid 60s across the higher elevations. Winds were
light and variable over land areas.

The persistent moderate easterly trade winds are expected to
continue to transport occasional patches of low level moisture
across the region for the next few days. This will again lead to
periods of early morning passing showers along the north and east
coastal areas, followed by the development of isolated to
scattered showers over parts of the interior and west sections of
Puerto Rico during the afternoons. Light to moderate easterly
trade winds between 10 to 15 mph can be expected during the next
couple of days.

Across the regional waters, hazardous seas are expected to continue
across most of the local waters and passages with seas of 6-8
feet and winds up to 15 knots expected. Therefore, small craft
advisories continue in effect. A high risk of rip currents
continues in effect across the northwest to north facing beaches
of Puerto Rico and Culebra.
