WEATHER SUMMARY FOR PUERTO RICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
526 AM AST SAT JUL 4 2015

SKIES BEGAN CLEARING OVERNIGHT IN PUERTO RICO REVEALING A WANING
FULL MOON. IT REMAINED BREEZY MOST OF THE NIGHT WITH 10 TO 20 MPH
WINDS AND HIGHER GUSTS IN SOME PLACES. TEMPERATURES WERE SLIGHTLY
WARMER THAN NORMAL AND SAHARAN DUST WAS INCREASING. A FEW
SPRINKLES FELL OUT OF FAST MOVING CLOUDS BUT RAIN AMOUNTS WERE
NEGLIGEABLE. THE LOW IN SAN JUAN SO FAR WAS 80 DEGREES.

THE TROPICAL WAVE THAT PASSED YESTERDAY WILL BRING DRIER AIR AND
A WIND SURGE TODAY. TEMPERATURES WILL REACH THE LOWER 90S IN THE
LOWER ELEVATIONS AND FEW SHOWERS WILL BE SEEN. SHOWERS OVER THE
LOCAL WATERS WILL ALSO MOVE AWAY LEAVING MOSTLY CLEAR BUT HAZY
SKIES. IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE DRY TONIGHT.

THE BREEZY CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN GENERATING WAVE ACTION ON THE
BEACHES THAT WILL BRING A MODERATE TO HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS
TODAY. THE HIGHEST RISK IS IN AND AROUND ISABELA...GUANICA AND
SAINT CROIX...BUT LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE
TODAY.

THE DRIER AIR AND BREEZY CONDITIONS WILL ALSO BRING HIGH FIRE
DANGER TO THE SOUTH COAST OF PUERTO RICO WHERE RELATIVE HUMIDITIES
AND FUEL MOISTURE WILL BE THE LOWEST. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH FIRE.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...SEAS WILL BE 4 TO 7 FEET THROUGH THE
WEEKEND. EXPECT WINDS BETWEEN 14 AND 20 KNOTS WITH HIGHER GUSTS.
A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR MOST OF THE
OFFSHORE WATERS AND PASSAGES BUT ELSEWHERE SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS
SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION.
