Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
519 PM AST Fri May 25 2018

Skies became mostly cloudy across the central and west sections of
Puerto Rico, while the remainder of the island as well as Vieques
and Culebra remained mostly sunny. Available moisture combined with
local and diurnal effects enhanced afternoon shower activity once
again over parts of the interior and west sections of the islands
producing periods of locally heavy rains. The areas of heavy
rainfall were focused over the northwest as well as over parts of
the San Juan Metro area. Minor urban and small stream flooding as
well as quick rapid river rises were reported in the areas of
heavy rainfall.

The shower activity and cloudiness over land should slowly diminish
during the evening hours, with only occasional passing showers expected
to move across the coastal waters and affect the eastern sections
of Puerto Rico overnight.

On Saturday, more of the same pattern is expected with mostly sunny
skies during the late morning and early afternoon, followed by shower
development across parts of the interior and west sections of Puerto
Rico. The present wind flow should continue to steer the afternoon
shower activity northwest over the surrounding municipalities.
Showers are also expected to develop and stream across parts of
the San Juan metro area. Minor urban and small stream flood will
again be possible with mudslides likely in areas of steep terrain
over portions of western Puerto Rico. High temperatures are
expected to range from the mid 80s to near 90 across lower
elevations and from the upper 70s to mid 80s across higher
elevations.

Across the regional waters, seas between 3 to 6 feet are expected with
east winds up to 20 knots. Small craft operators are urged to exercise
caution due to slightly choppy conditions. There is a moderate
risk of rip currents across the north facing beaches as well as
across some beaches in southeast and southwest PR, Vieques, and
Culebra.
