Weather Summary for Puerto Rico
National Weather Service San Juan PR
457 AM AST Fri Aug 7 2020
A few showers moved across the local waters, some of them moved
across the east third portion of Puerto Rico. Elsewhere, mostly
clear skies with pleasant weather. Minimum temperatures ranged
from the upper 70s to low 80s along the coastal areas to the
upper 60s to low 70s in the mountain areas. Winds were calm to
light and variable.
Subsidence ahead of an approaching tropical wave will limit shower
activity across the islands throughout the morning hours. The
tropical wave will move into the area spreading moisture, clouds
and showers with scattered thunderstorms across the island by
early this afternoon into the evening. Urban and small stream
flooding is likely in portions of the east, northwest and central
portions of the island. These showers will be enhanced by an
upper level trough and better available moisture. Periods of
moderate to heavy showers across the San Juan Metro area are also
expected. Maximum temperatures will range from the low 90s in the
lower elevations to the upper 70s in the highest mountains. Winds
will be east-southeast at 10 to 20 mph.
Across the local waters, seas between 2 to 5 feet with winds up to
20 knots are expected over the Atlantic and Caribbean waters.
There will be a moderate rip current risk for some beaches across
the northwest and southeast coast as well as across Culebra.
