Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
504 AM AST WED JUL 27 2016
Partly cloudy skies prevailed across the local islands overnight
and early this morning. Doppler weather radar indicated isolated
showers across Eastern sections of Puerto Rico as well as across
the surrounding coastal waters. Not precipitation was detected
elsewhere across the region. Winds over land were mainly from the
east around 10 to 15 MPH.
Moisture and instability will continue to diminish today, reducing
the shower coverage across the forecast area. However, few passing
showers will continue to affect the eastern sections of Puerto
Rico this morning. For this afternoon, the limited moisture across
the region will combine with daytime heating and local effects to
induce the development of showers and a couple of thunderstorms
across western and interior sections of Puerto Rico. An upper
level trough will move close to the region on Thursday increasing
again the chances of showers and thunderstorms.
Across the regional waters...seas up to 5 feet and east winds up
to 20 knots are expected. There is a moderate risk of rip
currents mainly across northern Puerto Rico and some coastal areas
of southeastern Puerto Rico including Culebra and Vieques.
