Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
519 PM AST Thu Oct 27 2016
Partly cloudy skies were observed across Puerto Rico, Vieques and
Culebra during the morning hours. Skies became mostly cloudy
across the interior, western, and north central sections of
Puerto Rico where showers and thunderstorms developed in the mid
afternoon hours. Doppler radar estimates indicate that 1 to 2
inches of rain fell across portions of the interior and north
central Puerto Rico. Daytime maximum temperatures were in the
upper 80s to low 90s across the lower elevations and in the upper
70s to low 80s across the higher elevations.
Although an upper high pressure ridge will continue to prevail
across the local islands, there is still enough moisture in the
area to help in the development of showers and thunderstorms in
the afternoon hours of the next several days with the combination
of the diurnal heating and the local effects. Isolated to
scattered showers can be expected in the overnight and early
morning hours for the next several days as well.
Seas up to 6 feet across the Atlantic waters and the local
passages tonight. Small boat operators should exercise caution
across these waters. There is a moderate risk of rip currents
along the Atlantic coastlines of Puerto Rico.
