Weather Summary for Puerto Rico...CORRECTED
National Weather Service San Juan PR
945 AM AST Thu May 19 2022

Cloudy skies were observed across Culebra, Vieques and the
eastern third of Puerto Rico, during the nighttime hours. A few
isolated showers were noted just east of Puerto Rico, but no
rainfall accumulations were reported. Overnight temperatures in
general were from the mid 70s to low 80s across the lower
elevations to the upper 60s across the higher elevations. Winds
were from the east up to 10 mph.

For today, a drier airmass with a Saharan Air Layer (SAL) will
continue to filter across the region through the weekend. This
will continue to result in hazy skies and will limit the rainfall
activity across most of the local islands. However, a few quick
showers might develop over the western sections of Puerto Rico in
the afternoon hours. Maximum temperatures are forecast to range
between the upper 80s to low 90s across coastal areas to the low
70s across the higher elevations. A heat advisory with heat
indices around 108 degrees was issued for the north-central
municipalities until 4 PM this afternoon. Winds will continue from
the east-southeast at around 15 mph with sea breeze variations
and higher wind gusts near the coastal sections.

Today, seas will remain up to 4 feet with winds up to 15 knots
across most of the local waters. Over the offshore Atlantic
waters, winds will increase slightly up to 20 knots, turning
conditions choppy in a few isolated spots. There is a moderate
risk of rip current across all the local beaches.
