Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
512 AM AST MON JUL 25 2016

Partly to variably cloudy skies were observed across the eastern
half of Puerto Rico due to a surge in trade wind showers. The
doppler radar estimated near an inch of rain across the southeast
coast of the island. Overnight temperatures were in the mid to
high 70s across coastal areas. The wind was light and variable
over land areas but near showers it was mainly from the east at 10
to 15 mph with higher gusts.

For Today, trade wind showers should diminish during the mid morning
hours as a brief area of drier air moves across the islands from
the east. Any shower activity during the day should be locally
induced with possible isolated thunderstorms over western Puerto
Rico. However, an increase in moisture is expected late tonight
into Tuesday due to the passage of a tropical wave. This could
lead to more frequent showers and isolated thunderstorm
development across the forecast area. Fair weather conditions but
with hazy skies due to Saharan dust are expected from Wednesday
through Friday.

Across the regional waters...seas up to 5 feet and east winds up
to 20 knots are expected. Small crafts should exercise caution
across the Atlantic waters. There is a moderate risk of rip
currents mainly across northern Puerto Rico and some coastal
areas of southeastern Puerto Rico including Culebra and Vieques.
