Weather Summary for Puerto Rico...DELAYED
National Weather Service San Juan PR
528 PM AST Wed Jan 17 2018

Partly cloudy to variably cloudy conditions prevailed across Puerto
Rico and adjacent islands during the day. Some diurnally induced
showers developed mainly over the west interior sections of Puerto
Rico and quickly move westward towards the coastal areas. Some
showers were moderate to locally heavy at times, but no significant
flood problems were reported today. Daytime high temperatures were
in the low to mid 80s along the coastal areas. Winds were generally
from the east to northeast at 10 to 15 mph with occasionally higher
gusts.

Easterly trade winds will continue to help transport occasional
patches of low level moisture to the region through the end of the
week. This will result in periods of passing showers during the
morning hours, followed by the development of isolated to
scattered showers over parts of the interior and west sections of
Puerto Rico during the afternoons. Light to moderate easterly
trade winds between 10 to 15 mph can be expected during the next
couple of days.

Across the regional waters, hazardous seas are expected to continue
across most of the local waters and passages with seas between 5-7 feet
and winds up to 15 knots with occasionally higher gusts. Therefore,
small craft advisories continue in effect. A high risk of rip currents
continues in effect across the northwest to north facing beaches of
Puerto Rico.
