Doppler radar indicates scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms across southeast and central interior of Puerto

outer rainbands, these showers will continue to increase from east
to west as Hurricane Maria moves closer to the forecast area.

Today a north to northeast wind will prevail ranging from 8 to 20
mph with higher gusts possible, this along with the increasing
clouds will keep daytime high temperatures in the mid to upper
80s. At this time all preparations should be rushed to completion
by this afternoon. Due to the potential for heavy rains over the
next several days a flash flood watch is in effect today through
Friday afternoon. Remember if you see flooded roadways turn around
don`t drown.


The category 4 Hurricane Maria is still expected to impact Puerto
Rico late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. Interests in
Puerto Rico should closely monitor the progress of this system and
