Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
514 PM AST TUE MAY 31 2016

Mostly cloudy to variably cloudy skies were observed across
Puerto Rico and the adjacent islands during the day. Showers and
isolated thunderstorms developed during the afternoon and affected
much of the northern half and east sections of Puerto Rico as well
as areas in and around Ponce. The heaviest rainfall was observed
over the east interior sections of the island and parts of the
San Juan metro area. The National Weather Service doppler radar
detected total rainfall accumulations of 1 to 2 inches with the
heaviest downpours which lead to minor urban and small stream
flooding. Isolated thunderstorms were also observed across the
Atlantic and Caribbean coastal waters. Winds were mainly from the
east southeast at 10 to 15 mph...with higher gusts in and around
showers and thunderstorms.

A moist and unstable air mass will continue to prevail across the
local islands during the next few days. This will result in passing
showers across the Eastern half of Puerto Rico as well as Vieques
and Culebra during the overnight and early morning hours...followed
by locally induced showers and thunderstorms which will develop
over the Cordillera Central or Puerto Rico and spread west northwest
each afternoon...steered by the prevailing wind flow.

Winds of 10 to 15 knots and seas up to 6 feet can be expected
across the local waters of Puerto Rico. A low to moderate risk of
rip currents is expected across most beaches of Puerto Rico...Vieques
and Culebra.
