VARIABLY CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED ACROSS THE ISLANDS AND THE
SURROUNDING COASTAL WATERS TODAY. SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS HIGH
CIRRUS CLOUDS ADVECTING OVER THE LOCAL REGION FROM THE NORTH.
THEN...SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPED ACROSS THE
NORTHWESTERN AND CENTRAL PUERTO RICO AS WELL AS PORTIONS OF THE

ESTIMATED OVER MOCA AND AGUADILLA. WIND WAS MAINLY FROM THE

SOUTHWESTWARD AND RELOCATE OVER THE NORTHEAST CARIBBEAN ISLANDS BY
