456 PM AST WED AUG 31 2016
Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the region
this afternoon. Doppler radar detected an isolated thunderstorm
across southwest Puerto Rico late this afternoon, but in general
limited shower activity was noted across the region as high
pressure ridge continued to build aloft and a fairly dry
southeasterly wind flow prevailed. Afternoon high temperatures
were in the high 80s to low 90s along the coastal areas. Except
for local sea breeze variations, winds were generally from the
east southeast at 10 to 15 mph.
A generally dry weather pattern will continue most of the week.
The presence of Saharan Dust and the high pressure building across
the region will continue inhibit and limit shower development
across the islands and coastal waters though at least Thursday.
However, local and diurnal effects may still lead to some
isolated showers or thunderstorms mainly across parts of the
interior and west sections of Puerto Rico each day. Local winds
will continue from the east as the surface high pressure remain north
of the region at least until Thursday, when a weak low level
disturbance is expected to move across the local region. This
should increase the chance for afternoon shower activity across
Across the coastal waters...seas up to 6 feet and winds up to 20
knots are expected. Small craft are urged to exercise caution
across some of the coastal waters.
