A surge of low level moisture produced passing showers across
the windward sections overnight. Most of the activity was
detected across the surrounding waters, but periods of moderate
downpours moved inland. Under the prevailing Southeasterly wind
flow, the minimum temperatures remained in the low 80s.
Under a building ridge pattern and precipitable water near the
normal range, continue to expect a few passing showers across the
windward areas, followed by locally induced afternoon showers and
thunderstorms. These afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be
focused north and northwest of the Cordillera Central today and
Saturday under a southeasterly wind flow. In addition, the
prevailing southeasterly wind flow will continue to result in
warm to hot temperatures along the northern slopes of Puerto Rico
during the next two days or so.
Across the coastal waters, seas up to 4 feet and winds around 15
knots are expected today. Moderate Risk of Rip Currents will
continue for the north facing coasts of Puerto Rico and Culebra.
