PARTLY TO CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED ACROSS ALL LOCAL ISLANDS
OVERNIGHT. SHOWERS WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS FORMED OVER THE
WATERS BETWEEN VIEQUES AND CULEBRA. HOWEVER...RAINFALL AMOUNT OVER
LAND AREAS WAS NOT SIGNIFICANT. AS THE DOPPLER RADAR ESTIMATED
RAINFALL AMOUNTS AROUND ONE TO TWO INCHES...MAINLY OVER THE
COASTAL WATERS BETWEEN EASTERN PUERTO RICO AND VIEQUES. WINDS WERE
GENERALLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE OVER LAND AREAS...WITH HIGHER GUSTS
NEAR THE SHOWERS.

FOR THE REST OF THE WEEKEND...UPPER LEVEL LOW NORTHEAST OF THE
REGION WILL CONTINUE TO PULL DEEP TROPICAL MOISTURE ACCOMPANYING
A TROPICAL WAVE OVER THE CARIBBEAN WATERS. THIS MOISTURE COMBINED
WITH DAYTIME HEATING AND FAVORABLE UPPER AIR CONDITIONS WILL
RESULT IN PERIODS OF HEAVY SHOWERS AND STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS
ALL WATERS AND ISLANDS. URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOODING IS
EXPECTED WITH THE HEAVIEST SHOWERS THIS AFTERNOON. MAINLY OVER
THE NORTHWESTERN QUADRANT OF PUERTO RICO AND ACROSS SECTIONS OF
THE SAN JUAN METRO AREA. HOWEVER...THE CHANCE FOR SHOWER AND
THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT REMAINS HIGH ACROSS THE REST OF THE
ISLANDS.

MARINERS CAN EXPECT EAST TO SOUTHEAST WINDS AT 15 KNOTS OR LESS
TODAY AND SEAS BELOW 4 FEET. AREAS OF STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED...WHICH CAN QUICKLY DETERIORATE MARINE CONDITIONS WITH
FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES...LOCALLY HIGHER WAVES AND STRONG GUSTY
WINDS.
