Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies prevailed across the local
islands during the morning and afternoon hours. No showers were
reported by the Doppler radar this afternoon. Maximum
temperatures were around 85 degrees across the coastal areas.
Winds over land were mainly from the east northeast at 10-15 MPH.
Showers embedded in the trades at times during the overnight hours as
well as limited afternoon convection across west Puerto Rico still
expected through Friday. A mid level ridge and low level
moisture will be the limiting factors. A wetter pattern is
possible Friday and into the upcoming weekend as an easterly
disturbance moves across the eastern Caribbean.
Mariners can expect seas generally 4 to 6 feet and easterly winds
at 10 to 15 knots. There is a high risk of rip currents across the
Atlantic facing beaches of Puerto Rico and Culebra.
