San Juan and Vicinity-Northeast-Southeast-Eastern Interior-
North Central-Central Interior-Ponce and Vicinity-Northwest-
Western Interior-Mayaguez and Vicinity-Southwest-Culebra-Vieques-
The nearshore and off shore Atlantic and Caribbean Coastal Waters-
423 AM AST Mon Oct 26 2020

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Puerto Rico and the adjacent
Atlantic Coastal Waters.

.Day One...Today and Tonight

.Flooding...Moderate to heavy rain showers could lead to ponding
water over roadways and in poor drainage areas in western Puerto Rico
this afternoon.

.Wind...Sustained winds in excess of 20 MPH (17 knots) are expected
across the local waters.

.Waves...Choppy/Rough seas up to 8 feet expected across the Atlantic
waters and local passages.

.Rip Currents...There is a high risk of rip currents for the northern
and eastern exposed beaches.

.Days Two through Seven...Tuesday through Sunday

Increasing tropical moisture across the forecast area from Tuesday
onwards will support better potential for shower and thunderstorm
development in and around the islands. A northerly swell and increasing
trade winds will cause marine conditions to deteriorate once again
through at least mid-week. This will result in choppy and hazardous
seas. A moderate to high risk of rip currents will continue through
Wednesday for beaches with a northern and eastern exposure.

.Spotter information statement...

Spotter activation is not anticipated. Please relay any information
about winds, waves, and rip currents to the National Weather Service
in San Juan while following all local and state guidelines.
