Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
425 PM AST Tue Sep 19 2017

...Hurricane warning is in effect for Puerto Rico...

Scattered showers associated with outer rain bands of Hurricane
Maria continue to move across Puerto Rico through the morning and
early afternoon hours. These showers will become more frequent and
increase from east to west through the evening as Maria moves closer
to the forecast area. Conditions will further deteriorate tonight as
tropical storm force, and eventually catastrophic hurricane force
winds, sweep across Puerto Rico. The strongest winds will begin in
southeastern Puerto Rico around 5 am, moving across and exiting
northwest Puerto Rico in the early evening hours on Wednesday.
Additionally, due to the potential for heavy rains over the next
several days a flash flood watch is in effect through Friday
afternoon. Remember if you see flooded roadways turn around don`t
drown.

The category 5 Hurricane Maria is still expected to impact Puerto
Rico late tonight and into Wednesday morning. Interests in Puerto
Rico should closely monitor the progress of this system and refer to
the latest bulletins and advisories issued by the National Weather
Service WFO San Juan and the National Hurricane Center.

Across the coastal waters, seas up to 10 feet and winds up to
tropical storm force 34 kts or higher this afternoon. Seas and winds
are expected to deteriorate rapidly tonight as Hurricane Maria
approaches to the region, with seas climbing above 20 ft late
tonight.
