Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
455 AM AST Wed Apr 25 2018

Partly cloudy skies prevailed across Puerto Rico, Vieques and
Culebra overnight and early this morning as drier air is still
moving through the area. Doppler radar indicated only few
isolated showers across the surrounding waters, but not
precipitation was observed over land areas so far this morning.
The overnight minimum temperatures were in the low to mid 70s
across the lower elevations and in the 60s across the higher
elevations. The wind was mainly from the east southeast at 10 mph
or less.

Low level moisture embedded in the trade winds will move into
eastern Puerto Rico this morning. However, only isolated shower
activity is expected in association with this moisture. During the
afternoon, the moisture will combine with daytime heating and
orographic effects to induce the development of scattered showers
across western and northwest Puerto Rico. Although an isolated
thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, thunderstorms are not expected
this afternoon. A larger area of moisture will move across the
region late tonight and thursday.

Quiet marine conditions are expected today across the local coastal
waters with seas up to 5 feet and winds of 10 to 15 knots. A
moderate risk of rip current is expected across most beaches in
Puerto Rico, except in the west coast, where the risk of rip
current is low.
