Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
348 PM AST Thu Jun 22 2017

Clear to partly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico this
afternoon. Only isolated shower activity were observed across
southwestern Puerto Rico as well as across the surrounding
coastal waters, but not significant precipitation was detected
elsewhere over land areas so far this afternoon. Winds were
generally from the east at 10 to 15 mph and the maximum
temperatures were in the upper 80s mostly in coastal areas.

Isolated passing showers embedded in the prevailing easterly wind
flow are still expected overnight and early in the morning over
the eastern sections of Puerto Rico. Although an upper level
ridge will remain as the main weather feature across the region
for the next couple of days, locally induced afternoon showers
and thunderstorms are still possible Friday afternoon across
western and interior sections of Puerto Rico. However, not
significant or widespread precipitation is expected as a drier air
mass will continue to encompass the region Friday and Saturday.
A tropical wave is expected to reach the region late Sunday and
Monday, increasing the chances of showers and thunderstorms across
the local islands and surrounding waters.

Across the regional waters, mariners can expect seas of 4 to 6
feet and east winds between 15 and 20 knots. As a result, small
boat operators should exercise caution. There is a moderate risk
of rip currents for all coastal areas of except for the west coast
of Puerto Rico.
