Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
509 AM AST FRI JUL 29 2016

Partly cloudy skies were observed across Puerto Rico overnight
and early this morning. Isolated to scattered showers affected
Vieques, Culebra, Eastern sections of Puerto Rico as well as the
surrounding coastal waters overnight. This activity was associated
with small areas of moisture embedded in the trades and enhanced
by an upper level trough across the region. Winds were mostly from
the East at around 10 mph with some higher gusts near showers.

For the rest of the morning hours, isolated to scattered passing
showers will continue to affect the local waters, Vieques,
Culebra and the Eastern sections of Puerto Rico. For this
afternoon the instability of the upper level trough will combine
with the available moisture, daytime heating and local effects to
produce a new round of showers and thunderstorms across western
and interior Puerto Rico. Drier air is expected to move across
the region Saturday morning and afternoon, before a strong
tropical moves over the region Saturday night and Sunday. This
wave will bring a general increase in cloudiness, showers and
thunderstorms to the local islands. Winds and waves also expected
to increase on Sunday into Monday.

Across the regional waters...seas up to 5 feet and east winds up
to 15 knots are expected today. There is a moderate risk of rip
currents mainly across northern Puerto Rico. Winds and seas will
increase over the weekend and small craft advisories may be
necessary.
