501 PM AST Fri Dec 9 2016
Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies were observed across the
local islands during the morning and early afternoon hours. A few
showers were observed over portions of southwestern PR, leaving
minor rainfall accumulations. Afternoon maximum temperatures
ranged from mid to upper 80s across lower elevations and mid 70s
to low 80s across higher elevations. The winds were mainly from
the east at 5-15 mph over land areas.
For the rest of the afternoon, fair weather conditions with partly
cloudy skies and limited shower activity are expected mainly
across portions of the interior and western Puerto Rico.
By late evening, similar conditions will persist as an easterly
wave moves farther away from the region. However, the chance for
shower development remains possible as low level moisture remnants
will continue to move across the local islands during the
overnight and early morning hours.
Mariners can expect seas generally up to 6 feet and easterly
winds at up to 20 knots across the regional waters. There is a
moderate risk of rip currents across various Atlantic and
Caribbean facing beaches of Puerto Rico, Culebra and Vieques.
