Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
451 PM AST Sun Mar 18 2018

Doppler radar indicated scattered to numerous showers this
afternoon along and to the north of Cordillera Central, including
parts of the metropolitan area. This activity will linger until
the late afternoon or early evening hours. Low level winds were
mainly from the east southeast at around 10 mph.

The afternoon showers are expected to dissipated this evening,
leaving clear to partly cloudy skies across the region. Low
temperatures would be in the low 70s across lower elevations and
in the upper 60s at higher elevations. Winds will be mainly east
southeast at 10 mph or less.

A relatively dry weather pattern will persist across the region
for the next couple of days as a surface high pressure system
across the Central Atlantic continues dominating the local area.
However, the available low level moisture in combination with
daytime heating and local effects will induce the development of
showers along and to the north of Cordillera Central as well as
across the western interior and northwest sections of Puerto Rico
each afternoon.

Quiet marine conditions will continue across the local waters
with seas of 2 to 5 feet at winds at 10 knots or less. Rip
current risk is expected to range from low to moderate.
