Weather Summary for Puerto Rico...CORRECTED
National Weather Service San Juan PR
556 PM AST Sat Mar 24 2018

Variably cloudy skies prevailed over Puerto Rico through the day
today. Some showers affected the island at different times today.
The showers that affected the local area produced upwards of an
inch of rain in some areas, especially the south and southwestern
sections. Elsewhere in Puerto Rico, the rainfall totals were
generally less than a half an inch of rain with isolated areas
receiving slightly higher amounts. The maximum daytime
temperatures were in the low 80s across the lower elevations and
in the mid to upper 70s across the higher elevations.

Low level moisture will continue to be above normal for tonight
and Sunday. The presence of the weak frontal boundary over the
local area will maintain a good chance for showers over Puerto
Rico, with the heaviest showers likely occurring during the
afternoon hours. Low level winds are expected to be from the east
to east northeast tonight into Sunday as a high pressure ridge
builds north of the region. As a result, the development of
scattered to numerous showers on Sunday afternoon are expected to
be more prevalent across portions of central and southwest
sections of Puerto Rico.

Seas of 3 to 7 feet are expected tonight into Sunday with the
arrival of a northerly swell. Small craft advisory for the
offshore Atlantic waters will go into effect at 8 PM AST tonight.
A high risk of rip currents for the north central and northwest
beaches of Puerto Rico starting tonight.
