WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PUERTO RICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
529 AM AST SAT MAR 28 2015

SKIES WERE MOSTLY CLEAR ACROSS THE WESTERN HALF OF PUERTO RICO...AND
PARTLY CLOUDY OVER THE REST OF THE ISLAND...AS WELL AS OVER CULEBRA
AND VIEQUES. A FEW PASSING EARLY MORNING SHOWERS DEVELOPED ACROSS
THE REGIONAL WATERS AND MOVED INLAND ACROSS PARTS OF EASTERN PUERTO
RICO. THESE SHOWERS WERE HOWEVER OF MAINLY LIGHT INTENSITY AND OF
SHORT DURATION WITH MINIMAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS. EARLY MORNING
TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE MID TO HIGH 70S ALONG THE COASTAL AREAS
AND LOW TO MID 60S IN HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND VALLEYS. THE WIND OVER
LAND WAS MAINLY FROM THE EAST SOUTHEAST AT 5 MPH OR LESS...BUT
SLIGHTLY HIGHER WITH SOME OF THE PASSING SHOWERS.

A GENERALLY FAIR AND MAINLY STABLE WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE
TO PREVAIL DURING THE DAY...AS HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE PATTERN ALOFT
SHOULD HOLD ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. A FEW PASSING SHOWERS ARE
STILL EXPECTED TO FORM ACROSS PARTS OF THE INTERIOR AND WEST
SECTIONS OF THE ISLANDS DURING THE AFTERNOON. UNDER THE CURRENT
EAST SOUTHEAST WIND FLOW...SLIGHTLY WARMER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES
CAN BE EXPECTED TODAY...ESPECIALLY ALONG THE NORTH COASTAL AREAS.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...EAST SOUTHEAST TRADE WINDS OF 15 TO 20
KNOTS CAN BE EXPECTED WITH OCCASIONALLY HIGHER GUSTS POSSIBLE UP TO
25 KNOTS. WIND DRIVEN SEAS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE TO UP TO 6 FEET
DUE TO THE INCREASING TRADE WINDS. SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS ARE
THEREFORE URGED TO EXERCISE CAUTION IN EXPOSED WATERS.
