Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
512 AM AST Fri Oct 28 2016
Partly cloudy skies were observed across Puerto Rico, Vieques and
Culebra during the overnight and early morning hours. Doppler
weather radar detected isolated to scattered showers across the
surrounding waters with few of them affecting Vieques, Culebra and
eastern sections of Puerto Rico. Winds were light and variable.
Although an upper high pressure ridge will continue to prevail
across the local islands, there is still enough moisture in the
area to help in the development of showers and thunderstorms
during the afternoon hours for the next several days. Strongest
showers and thunderstorms will be focused across central and west
Puerto Rico where urban and small stream flooding is likely as
well as mudslides in areas of steep terrain. Isolated to
scattered showers can be expected during the overnight and early
morning hours for the next several days as well.
Seas up to 6 feet across the Atlantic waters and the local
passages today. Small boat operators should exercise caution
across these waters. There is a high risk of rip currents for most
of the beaches along the Atlantic coastlines of Puerto Rico.
