Mostly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico overnight and
early this morning. Moderate to heavy showers developed across
Vieques, Culebra, eastern and central sections of Puerto Rico
overnight. Several flood advisories were issued overnight for
several municipalities over those sections of Puerto Rico.
Rainfall amounts were between one to two inches in few spots.
Temperatures along coastal areas were in the mid to upper 70s
under a southwest wind flow up to 10 mph.
Environmental conditions are favorable and conducive for periods
of showers with thunderstorms today and into the early in the
upcoming week due to the proximity of a mid to upper level trough
and plenty of low level moisture. Shower activity is expected
across eastern Puerto Rico at times with showers and thunderstorms
developing over north and interior Puerto Rico this afternoon.
These showers are likely to result in urban flooding as well as
rises along small streams and rivers.
Seas will continue to deteriorate today as a north northwest
swell continue to reach the local waters. As a result, small
craft advisories will remain in effect through at least Sunday
evening as seas up to 10 feet are expected. A high surf advisory
is also in effect for the northwest to northeast shoreline of
Puerto Rico and a high risk of rip current for the northwest to
northeast facing beaches of Puerto Rico and Culebra.
