Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
503 AM AST Sun Mar 26 2017

Variably cloudy skies prevailed across the forecast area overnight
and early in the morning. Doppler radar detected scattered showers
and a couple of thunderstorms across eastern, southeastern and
northwestern sections of Puerto Rico as well as across Vieques and
Culebra. Temperatures along coastal areas were in the mid to upper 70s
under a south southwest wind flow up to 10 mph.

Environmental conditions will remain favorable and conducive for
periods of showers with thunderstorms through early the upcoming
week due to the proximity of a mid to upper level trough and
plenty of low level moisture. As this feature weakens Monday and
into Tuesday, the low level moisture across the local islands is
expected to erode. Therefore, through at least Monday, continue to
expect shower activity across east and southeast Puerto Rico at
times with afternoon convection over and north of the Cordillera
Central each day. A fair weather pattern with limited shower
activity is expected by midweek. Soils are already saturated,
therefore heavy rains will likely to result in urban flooding as
well as rises along small streams and rivers.

Hazardous seas will continue to prevail across the local waters as
a north northwest swell continues to affect the area. Seas up to 10
feet are expected this morning, but subsiding during the
afternoon. A high surf advisory is in effect for the northwest to
northeast shoreline of Puerto Rico with a high risk of rip
current in effect for the northwest to northeast facing beaches of
Puerto Rico and Culebra.
