Weather Summary for Puerto Rico...CORRECTED
National Weather Service San Juan PR
514 AM AST Sat Oct 24 2020

Partly cloudy skies prevailed across the region as moisture
accompanying a weak easterly wave moved across the area this
morning. This resulted in the development of isolated passing
showers mainly across the coastal waters, although a few showers
brushed parts of the islands from time to time. So far no
significant rainfall was observed or reported over the land areas.
Winds were generally light and variable to calm over land. Early
morning low temperatures were in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees
along the coastal areas.

A drier airmass is then expected to filter in and spread across
the region during the rest of the day through Sunday, with a
gradual increase in the easterly trade winds for the next few
days. Therefore, mostly sunny skies and fair weather conditions
are forecast for most of the islands. However, afternoon shower
development will remain possible across portions of western Puerto
Rico with a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms. This in turn
may lead to ponding of water on roadways and in poor drainage areas.
Winds will be generally from the east to southeast at 10 to 15 mph
with occasionally gusts along the coastal areas during the afternoon
hours.

Marine conditions continue to gradually improve, with seas
expected to range between 4 and 6 feet across the local waters
through this afternoon. Seas, however will become hazardous and
choppy once again beginning tonight and continuing through at
least the early portion of next week due to a combination of fresh
easterly winds and another northerly swell. A high risk of rip
currents will continue for the north-facing beaches of Puerto Rico
and Culebra throughout the weekend and a moderate risk of rip
currents elsewhere.
