Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
508 AM AST Sun Apr 30 2017
Mostly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico overnight. An
area of showers and thunderstorms affected the eastern section of
Puerto Rico early this morning. Rainfall accumulations from one to
two inches were estimated by the Doppler weather radar in some
localized areas mainly in the vicinity of El Yunque rainforest.
Temperatures were in the mid to upper 70s and winds were mainly
east at 10 mph or less.
For today, a very moist and unstable environment will aid in the
development of showers and thunderstorms across the Cordillera
Central of Puerto Rico early in the afternoon. The activity is
expected to spread across the western interior and northwest
sections of Puerto Rico. Due to the previous days rainfall, any
additional showers will result in urban and small stream flooding.
Mariners can expect seas up to 6 feet across the regional waters
and local passages with easterly winds between 15 and 20 knots.
Therefore, mariners should exercise caution across most of the
regional waters. There is a moderate risk of rip currents across
most of the local beaches, except for the west coastline.
