Mostly sunny skies prevailed across Culebra and Vieques and most
of Puerto Rico except for the northwest and west sections of the
island. Showers and isolated thunderstorms developed across the
central and west interior sections, and moved northwest towards
the coastal areas. This activity produced periods of locally heavy
rains along with dangerous lightning with gusty winds. Urban and
small stream flooding was reported in isolated areas. Estimated
rainfall amounts were between an inch to two inches with the heavy
rainfall. Except for sea breeze variations, winds were from the
east at 15 to 20 mph with higher gust to near 30 mph in some areas.

of the central and northwest sections of Puerto Rico. Winds will be

to high 80s.
