Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
512 AM AST Wed Jun 28 2017

A few clouds were observed overnight across Puerto Rico, Vieques
and Culebra with a few showers moving in early in the morning,
leaving trace amounts of rain. Overnight minimum temperatures were
generally in the upper 70s to low 80s across the lower elevations
and in the low to mid 70s across the higher elevations with light
and variable winds.

Saharan Dust over the local area will cause hazy skies through the
day across the local islands. Isolated and brief shower activity is
expected in the morning hours across the eastern sections of Puerto
Rico. Showers and thunderstorms are possible across the western
sections in the afternoon. This is due to the combination of the
limited available moisture, local effects, diurnal heating and
some instability. Daytime maximum temperatures are expected to be
in the low 90s across the lower elevations and in the mid 80s
across the higher elevations. Local winds expected to be from the
east at 10 to 15 mph with sea breeze variations. A tropical wave
is expected to approach the local islands late on Thursday,
causing an increase in showers and thunderstorms.

Across the regional waters, mariners can expect seas of 3 to 5
feet and east winds between 10 and 15 knots. There is a moderate
risk of rip currents for some beaches in Puerto Rico especially
along the north central, south central and southwest coasts.
