Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
629 PM AST Sat Aug 19 2017

Variably cloudy skies prevailed across the local islands and
surrounding waters this afternoon. Doppler radar indicated
scattered to numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms along and
north of Cordillera Central, across southeastern sections of
Puerto Rico as well as across the surrounding coastal waters.
Several Flood Advisories and Special Weather Statement were issued
for municipalities across those sectors of the island. Several
Marine Weather Statements were also issued due to frequent lightnings
across the surrounding waters. Winds were mostly from the east
southeast at 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts especially near
showers and thunderstorms. Maximum temperatures this afternoon
ranged from the upper 80 to the lower 90s mostly along the coastal
areas.

The afternoon shower and thunderstorm activity was associated with
daytime heating and local effects in combination with the moisture
in the northern periphery of tropical depression Harvey. The
tropical depression will continue to move westward across the
central Caribbean well south of the local islands tonight. The
shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to diminish after
sunset. For Sunday, an area of low pressure is expected to pass
mainly north of the area. However, abundant moisture associated
with this system will aid in the development of showers and
thunderstorms once again Sunday afternoon and will continue into
the early morning hours on Monday. By Monday afternoon diurnal
induced activity is expected to produce showers and thunderstorms
mainly north of Cordillera Central.

Mariners can expect seas between 5 to 7 feet with occasional seas
up to 9 feet and winds 15 to 20 knots. Therefore, small Crafts
Advisories are in effect. In addition, there is a high rip
current risk across most of the beaches in PR.
