Mostly sunny skies prevailed across the region today. However
during the afternoon, showers and isolated thunderstorms developed
across parts of the West Interior, West and Northwest sections of
Puerto Rico. Some areas observed periods of moderate to heavy
rains. Rainfall accumulations ranged between 1-2 inches especially
across portions of Las Marias and San Sebastian. Winds were mainly
from the east at 10 to 15 mph.
Light showers may affect parts of the east coastal sections of
the islands tonight and overnight as a band of low level moisture
moves across the local islands. Isolated convection is possible
once again across western Puerto Rico during the afternoon. Winds
will begin to increase over the area Wednesday night as the tropical
disturbance crosses through the Windward Islands. Showers will
likely increase in frequency across northeast Caribbean late
Wednesday and Thursday.
Across the regional waters, mariners can expect seas of 5 feet or
less and east winds up to 18 knots today. Marine conditions will
likely deteriorate the rest of the week as a tropical disturbance
moves over the Eastern Caribbean. This will likely result in fresh
to strong winds and hazardous seas especially over the Caribbean
Waters from Wednesday Night through the end of the week.
