Variably cloudy to partly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto
Rico during the day. Some trade wind showers moved across eastern
and northeastern portions of Puerto Rico during the late morning
and early afternoon hours while showers developed over southwest
Puerto Rico during the early afternoon hours. Accumulations were
generally very minor. Most of these showers, however, have
dissipated during the late afternoon hours, leaving most of the
region under mainly fair weather conditions. Winds were generally
from the east northeast between 10 and 20 mph with ocassionally
higher gusts near passing shower activity. High temperatures were
in the low to mid 80s across lower elevations and low to mid 70s
across higher elevations.

Mainly fair weather conditions will prevail across the region
during the early evening hours, however, during the overnight and
into the early morning hours some brief passing showers may move
across Vieques, Culebra, and the north and east sections of Puerto
Rico due to a patch of moisture moving through. On Sunday
afternoon, some showers may develop over southwest portions of
Puerto Rico while mainly fair weather conditions is expected
elsewhere. Temperatures will continue to be pleasant with highs
in the low to mid 80s along coastal areas and in the low to mid
70s across higher elevations.

Choppy seas between 4 to 6 feet will continue across the regional
waters during the overnight through Sunday Afternoon. Marine
conditions will start to deteriorate once again by Sunday night and
remain hazardous through at least the middle of next week with seas
of 7 feet or more expected. Therefore, a Small Craft Advisory will
be in effect for most of the regional waters. There is a high risk
of rip currents for the northwest facing beaches of Puerto Rico with
a low to moderate risk elsewhere.
