DROUGHT INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN JUAN PR
600 PM AST FRI MAY 27 2016

...MODERATE DROUGHT CONDITIONS REMAIN OVER SALINAS, GUAYAMA AND
VIEQUES...

&&

SYNOPSIS...YEAR TO DATE RAINS LEAD TO MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS IN DROUGHT
CONDITIONS, HOWEVER LONG TERM DEFICIT CONTINUES ACROSS THE EASTERN
HALF OF THE ISLAND.

&&

CLIMATE SUMMARY...A SEASONABLE WEATHER PATTERN PREVAILED ACROSS
THE LOCAL ISLANDS DURING THE PAST FEW WEEKS. ENOUGH RAIN HAS
FALLEN TO PREVENT DETERIORATION, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY ADDITIONAL
IMPROVEMENT.

&&

EXTENDED FORECAST...WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES NORTH AND EAST
OF THE ISLANDS MAY LEAD TO ABOVE-AVERAGE HUMIDITY. HOWEVER, DUE
TO COOLER SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES EXPECTED ACROSS THE ATLANTIC
WATERS NEAR THE EQUATOR AND WEST OF AFRICA, A PATTERN OF DRY AIR
MAY BE OBSERVED ACROSS THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN TOWARDS JULY.

&&

HYDROLOGIC SUMMARY...THE 28-DAY AVERAGE STREAMFLOW MEASURED BY
THE USGS GAGING NETWORK SHOWS MOST LOCATIONS RUNNING IN THE 25
TO 90 PERCENT OF NORMAL RANGE.

&&

NEXT ISSUANCE...
THIS PRODUCT WILL BE UPDATED BY MID JUNE OR SOONER IF NECESSARY
IN RESPONSE TO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN CONDITIONS. RELATED WEB
