Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
534 AM AST Mon Nov 12 2018

Doppler radar detected scattered to numerous showers across the
local waters and the north and eastern sections of Puerto Rico.
Radar estimates showed around one inch across El Yunque but
generally less than a quarter of an inch. Winds along the coast
were at less than 10 mph and gusty near showers, but calm to
light and variable across the mountain areas. Early morning low
temperatures were in the mid to high 70s along the coastal
areas.

The frequency of shower activity is expected to slowly diminish
as the low level moisture is expected to declined somewhat
through the morning hours. However, convection is expected to
develop across the interior and southern sections of Puerto Rico
during the afternoon. Thunderstorm development should not be
ruled this afternoon, especially along southwest Puerto Rico.
Winds will be mainly from the east northeast between 10 to 15 mph
with some higher gusts near thunderstorms and along the north
coast of Puerto Rico.

Mariners are urged to exercise caution across the local waters due
to northeast winds at 15 to 20 mph and seas up to 6 feet. Seas are
expected to increase at 6 to 8 feet with occasional seas up to 10
feet across the Atlantic and Caribbean Offshore waters. As a
result, small craft advisories are in effect from this evening
through at least Wednesday afternoon. A moderate risk of rip
currents will continue for most of the northern, and some beaches
with any eastern exposure, on all the local islands. However, the
risk is high across the northeast beaches of Puerto Rico including
Culebra. The risk of strong rip currents will increase through
mid-week.
