Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
547 PM AST Sun Oct 23 2016

Skies were mostly clear over Puerto Rico during the early morning
hours. Clouds began to form in the higher elevations during the
midday, being forced off the coasts by sea breezes--especially in
the north. A few showers began just after noon in the northeast
and continued for much of the afternoon, prompting local river
rises. Then showers and thunderstorms with frequent lightning developed
along the north side of the Cordillera Central not far from Cayey and
slowly erupted westward to as far as Yauco, where some showers
were still falling as of sunset. Estimated radar amounts of up to
3.5 inches fell in the interior with the highest gage amount being
3.14 inches in Orocovis. Temperatures during the afternoon ranged
from the upper 70s in the highest elevations to the lower 90s just
inland from the coasts. Winds were easterly with some sea breeze
influences around 10 to 20 mph near the coasts and generally less
than 10 mph inland.

Moisture will continue for the next several days in similar
amounts but winds have shifted to the northeast, so showers in
the morning will now favor the northeastern slopes in eastern
Puerto Rico and the Cordillera and southwest Puerto Rico during
the afternoons Monday and Tuesday. Some thunderstorms will
generate heavy rain with urban and small stream flooding just as
they did today. Highs will range from the lower 90s in the lower
elevations to the upper 70s in the higher mountains. Winds will be
northeast 5 to 15 mph with land and sea breeze influences near the

Tranquil marine conditions will continue to prevail with seas up
to 4 feet and winds 10 knots or less except in the passages where
winds will be 10 to 15 knots. The rip current risks will be low
around the island tomorrow.
