Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
415 PM AST Sat Dec 16 2017

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico
during the afternoon hours. Isolated to scattered showers were
noted across the surrounding waters with few of them affecting the
eastern and northern sections of Puerto Rico from time to time.
However, not significant precipitation was observed elsewhere over
land areas so far this afternoon. Today maximum temperatures were
mostly in the mid 80s at lower elevations and from the low to mid
70s in higher elevations. Winds are expected to continue from the
east-northeast Tonight at 10 to 15 mph.

The local weather conditions are dominated by a strong upper level
ridge over the area. Under this ridge pattern aloft, continue to
expect fair weather conditions with trade wind showers at times as
well as locally induced showers across the southwest quadrant of
Puerto Rico each afternoon and pleasant daytime and overnight
temperatures during the next few days. A surface high pressure
across the northeast central Atlantic will maintain an east to
east-northeast wind flow across the region for the next few days.

Across the regional waters...Seas up to 7 feet will continue across
the Atlantic water and local passages Tonight. Winds will remain
from the east to east-northeast at 10 to 20 knots. For the beach
goers, there is a moderate risk of rip currents for the northwest
to northeast as well as for the east and southeast facing beaches
of Puerto Rico and for most beaches of Vieques and Culebra.
