Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
433 AM AST Wed Mar 1 2017

Skies were mostly cloudy overnight. Showers became heavier and more
frequent after midnight and San Juan received five hundredths of
an inch. The flanks of El Yunque received upwards of one quarter
inch in places. Winds were in the 10 to 15 MPH range from the
east northeast with occasional gusts to the lower 20s on the
coasts and much lighter inland. Minimum temperatures ranged from
the mid 70s on the windward coasts to the lower 60s and upper 50s
in the higher mountain valleys.

Breezy conditions and a seasonable weather pattern will continue
to prevail across the Puerto Rico but the showers are expected to
taper off after this morning on the east coast and return
Thursday morning to a lesser extent. Some showers should develop
in southwest Puerto Rico this afternoon, but will move quickly
offshore. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s followed by lows
mainly in the lower 70s in the lower elevations. In the highest
elevations highs may not reach 70 while lows will again be around
60 degrees. Winds will be stronger today than yesterday and gusts
in the lower 30s will be possible along the coasts and favored
valleys in the east.

East to northeast winds around 20 knots with wind driven seas of
6 to 8 feet are expected to continue across most of the local
waters during the next few days. A moderate to high risk of rip
currents will continue across most of the coastal areas through at
least Friday. Little--if any--improvement is seen in this
situation next week.
