Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
342 PM AST FRI MAY 27 2016
Abundant high level cloudiness prevailed across the local islands
this afternoon. However...the doppler weather radar detected only
light isolated showers mostly across eastern and southwest
sections of Puerto Rico as well as across the surrounding waters.
Elsewhere across the region...not significant shower activity was
observed. Winds were mostly from the east southeast at 10 to 15
mph and coastal temperatures were in the upper 80s.
A generally fair and mainly stable weather pattern will continue
to prevail across the local islands tonight and Saturday...as a
ridge pattern aloft persists across the forecast area. Showers
will affect the eastern sections of Puerto Rico overnight and
early in the morning...followed by some afternoon convection
across western and interior sections of Puerto Rico. The potential
for shower and thunderstorm development will increase on Sunday as
the ridge aloft erodes and moisture continues to increase across
the eastern Caribbean.
Winds of 10 to 15 knots and seas up to 5 feet can be expected
across the local waters of Puerto Rico tonight and Saturday. A
moderate risk of rip currents will continue across much of the
Atlantic beaches of Puerto Rico...Vieques and Culebra.
