Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
455 AM AST Thu Feb 23 2017

Partly cloudy skies were observed across Puerto Rico and
surrounding waters overnight and early this morning. Doppler
weather radar indicated isolated to locally scattered showers
moving westward across Vieques, Culebra and the eastern sections
of Puerto Rico. However, the total rainfall accumulations were
generally minimal. The wind over land was generally from the east
to east northeast at 10 MPH or less.

A relatively dry air mass will move over the region today.
However, areas of moisture embedded in the trade will continue to
produce cloudiness and showers over eastern sections of Puerto
Rico during the rest of the morning hours. This moisture in
combination with local effects is expected to produce some showers
across interior and western PR this afternoon. The local wind
will gradually shift to an easterly direction with speeds of
around 10 to 15 mph today and from the east-southeast tonight.

A gradual increase in seas is expected today. Seas up to 7 feet
is expected this afternoon across the offshore Atlantic waters.
Small Craft Advisory will be in effect this afternoon for this
marine zone. Small craft are urged to exercise caution tonight
across most of the local waters due to seas up to 6 feet.
