Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
453 AM AST Mon Feb 19 2018

Partly cloudy skies were observed overnight and early this morning
across Puerto Rico and adjacent islands as passing clouds and
trade winds showers moved in and out of the region. While most of
the showers remained over the coastal waters, a few brushed the
north and east coastal sections of the islands. Accumulations were
however minimal. The local winds were around 15 mph with higher
gusts. Early morning low temperatures were in the low 70s along
coastal areas.

There will be no significant changes in the overall local weather
pattern for the next couple of days. Brief shower activity is
forecast each day as patches of low level moisture move in. Winds
are forecast to increase a bit Today and Tuesday, as the surface
high pressure ridge builds across the Atlantic, just north of the
local area. Pleasant temperatures will continue with highs in the
low to mid 80s along coastal areas, and in the low to mid 70s
across higher elevations. Due to the dry and breezy conditions
expected, an elevated fire danger is possible across the southern
coastal plains of Puerto Rico and a Red Flag Warning will be in
effect from 8 AM this morning through 6 PM this evening for that
area.

Seas are expected to increase to 6 to 8 feet Today as the trade
winds increase. Marine conditions will remain hazardous through
the middle of the week, with wind driven seas of 8 feet or higher
expected. Small Craft Advisories will continue in effect through
at least Wednesday for most of the local waters.
