VARIABLY CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED ACROSS PUERTO RICO...VIEQUES...
CULEBRA AND ACROSS THE SURROUNDING WATERS OVERNIGHT AND EARLY THIS
MORNING. THE DOPPLER WEATHER RADAR DETECTED NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS EASTERN...SOUTHEASTERN AND SOUTHERN

WERE AT AROUND 10 MPH...WITH HIGHER GUSTS NEAR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS.

A TROPICAL WAVE...JUST SOUTH OF HISPANIOLA THIS MORNING...WILL
CONTINUE TO MOVE WESTWARD AND AWAY FROM THE LOCAL ISLANDS TODAY.
SATELLITE IMAGES DEPICTED A LARGE AREA OF MOISTURE ACROSS THE
CARIBBEAN WATERS BEHIND THE AFOREMENTIONED TROPICAL WAVE. THIS
MOISTURE IS ENHANCED BY AN UPPER LEVEL LOW JUST TO THE NORTH OF
THE REGION. THESE FEATURES WILL CONTINUE TO PROMOTE SCATTERED
SHOWERS ACROSS THE WATERS THIS MORNING. FOR THIS AFTERNOON...
AVAILABLE MOISTURE WILL COMBINE WITH DAYTIME HEATING AND LOCAL
ISLANDS EFFECTS TO INDUCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS WESTERN AND INTERIOR SECTIONS OF
PUERTO RICO.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...SEAS OF 6 FEET OR LESS AND WINDS OF 19
KNOTS OR LESS ARE EXPECTED TODAY. THEREFORE SMALL CRAFT SHOULD
