Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
512 AM AST Sun Aug 20 2017

Partly to mostly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico
overnight. Scattered showers were observed across Vieques,
Culebra as well across the eastern and northern sections of
Puerto Rico during the overnight hours. This activity was
associated with the leading edge of an area of low pressure which
was located north of the U.S. Virgin Islands early this morning.
Low temperatures were in the upper 70s to low 80s and the winds
were generally east at 10 mph or less.

For today, 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 this 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 10 to 15 knots. Therefore, small Crafts
Advisories are in effect for the offshore Atlantic waters. In
addition, there is a moderate rip current risk across most of the
beaches in PR.
