Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
401 AM AST Tue May 17 2022

Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies were observed across the
islands during the overnight hours. Isolated showers moved over
portions of eastern Puerto Rico, leaving minor rainfall amounts.
Minimum temperatures were from the mid to upper 70s in the lower
elevations to the mid and upper 60s in the higher elevations and
valleys. Winds were from the east between 10 and 15 mph.

Showers are expected to increase across the regional waters and
eastern sections of Puerto Rico during the morning hours. This
will be followed by afternoon showers and possible thunderstorm
development over the northwestern sections. Maximum temperatures
are forecast to range between the upper 80s to 90 degrees across
coastal areas to the low 70s across the higher elevations. Winds
will continue from the east around 15 mph with sea breeze
variations. Drier air with suspended Saharan dust is expected to
gradually filter across the region through Wednesday.

Across the regional waters, seas will range from 3 to 5 feet in
general, and winds will continue from the east to southeast
between 10 to 15 knots. However, winds up to 20 knots are expected
across the Caribbean coastal waters and mariners should exercise
caution. There is a moderate risk of rip currents across all the
islands.
