Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
559 PM AST Wed Mar 29 2017

Sunny to partly cloudy skies were observed mainly across the
western and northern coastal areas of Puerto Rico. However, afternoon
showers and thunderstorms developed across the Cordillera Central
and the eastern sections of the island. Doppler radar rainfall
estimates and rain gages reported between 2 to 3 inches of rain
across the interior and eastern interior municipalities. Urban and
small stream flooding was reported with this activity. Winds were
light with a northerly component and sea breeze variations were
also observed across the southern coastal areas. Afternoon maximum
temperatures were in the low to mid 80s.

For tonight, mostly clear skies should prevail and winds are
expected from the northeast around 10 mph or less. Temperatures
are expected to range between the high 50s across the higher
elevations to low 70s across coastal areas. A fair weather
pattern with limited shower activity is expected Thursday and
Friday as a drier air mass moves across the forecast area.
However, diurnal effects and northeast winds can lead to scattered
shower activity over the Cordillera Central and the south to
southwestern coastal areas of Puerto Rico.

Seas are expected to remain at 5 feet or less tonight across the
offshore waters and under 4 feet across the coastal waters of the
islands. Winds are expected to prevail from the northeast at 5 to
15 knots. A moderate to high risk of rip currents is expected on
Thursday across much of the north facing beaches of the islands.
