Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
618 PM AST Sun Mar 26 2017
Isolated to locally scattered showers were observed over and north
of the Cordillera Central this afternoon. Even a brief tornado
was also reported in Villa Andalucia, Trujillo Alto. Winds were
west southwest at 10 mph with some sea breeze variations.
Temperatures were in the mid to upper 80s along coastal areas.
Environmental conditions will remain favorable and conducive for
periods of showers with thunderstorms through early the upcoming
workweek due to the proximity of a mid to upper level trough and
plenty of low level moisture. As this feature weakens Monday and
into Tuesday, the low level moisture across the local islands is
expected to erode. Therefore, through at least Monday, continue to
expect shower activity across east and southeast Puerto Rico at
times with afternoon convection over and north of the Cordillera
Central each day. A fair weather pattern with limited shower
activity is expected by midweek. Soils are already saturated,
therefore heavy rains will likely to result in urban flooding as
well as rises along small streams and rivers.
Seas 5 to 7 feet are expected across the Atlantic waters during
the overnight hours. Seas will continue to slowly subside
tomorrow. However, another swell will arrive by midweek with seas
increasing once again up to 7 feet. A high risk of rip current is
in effect for north central and northwest beaches of Puerto Rico
