Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
533 PM AST Thu Jan 23 2020

The morning started with a few clouds and some shower activity
across southern Puerto Rico, but the cloud cover and shower
activity gradually increased over most of Puerto Rico as a cold
front passed over the area. Portions of the interior, southern,
and northeast Puerto Rico observed over one inch of rain, but
isolated areas received nearly three inches. Some flooding across
urban areas and small streams was observed with this rainfall
activity. The daytime maximum temperatures were in the mid to
upper 80s across the lower elevations and in the upper 70s to low
70s across the higher elevations. The local winds gradually
shifted from being light and from the southeast, to being from 10
to 15 mph with occasional gusts from the northwest.

Some shower activity and variably cloudy skies are expected
through the evening hours, improving by late tonight. The local
winds will continue to change direction, becoming more
northeasterly overnight. The overnight low temperatures are
expected to be in the low to mid 70s across the lower elevations,
and in the 60s across the higher elevations. Shower activity will
once again increase on Friday afternoon across the interior and
northeastern sections of Puerto Rico.

In the local Atlantic waters, seas are going to increase to
around 4 to 6 feet and then become hazardous on Friday as seas
increase to 8 feet due to a northerly swell that will reach the
local waters. In the Caribbean waters, wave heights will remain
below 5 feet until Saturday. There is a moderate risk of rip
currents at north-facing beaches tonight, but there will be a high
risk of rip currents along the north coast on Friday.
