Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
354 PM AST MON AUG 29 2016

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the region
today except for parts of northwest sections of Puerto Rico where
skies became variably cloudy due to afternoon showers
development. The Doppler radar and satellite imagery detected a
few areas of moderate rainfall across the region. A few showers
were also noted in and around Culebra and Vieques early in the
afternoon. Winds were generally from the southeast with afternoon
high temperatures reaching the low 90s along portion of the
northern half of Puerto Rico including the San Juan metro area
where so far 94 degrees was reported at the San Juan International
Airport.

The upper level low and associated trough was now just north of
Puerto Rico and will continue to lift farther west northwest
tonight through Tuesday. This feature should be close enough to
aid in some convective development during the rest of the
afternoon and this evening but mostly across portions of the
coastal waters. A drier weather pattern is expected overnight
through Tuesday and will continue through most for the week as a
drier saharan air layer will spread across the region in the next
few days with lesser moisture transport expected in the easterly
trade winds. Warmer afternoon temperatures are expected at least
through Tuesday or Wednesday. Winds are expected to become more
easterly during the latter part of the week.

Across the coastal waters...seas up to 5 feet and winds around 15
knots are expected. For the beach goers, there is a moderate risk
of rip currents along some of the beaches of the Atlantic Coastline.
